The Norvik Story

The Norvik story began in 1948 just a short walk from Grimsby’s thriving fishing port and at the very centre of the UK’s fish industry. Using a traditional recipe and local fish, we were the first to produce the delicious Grimsby fish cake which is still part of our product range today.

Since those early days, we’ve continued to improve and expand our range, using the best quality ingredients, adopting modern processing techniques and embracing emerging food trends. We wholeheartedly believe in sustainability, make all our fish cakes and shanties in house and work hard to ensure the highest possible standards.

Today, we are proud to produce both our own range of delicious products as well as branded ranges for our customers. Our skilled team and personal approach mean we can work closely with clients to create unique recipes and products to help add value to your range.

We’re A Friendly Bunch
