Chrisfish Danmark was founded in 1962 by the local fisherman, Christian E. Bertelsen. Christian landed his catches in the English port of Grimsby, where he experienced a great demand for Danish fish. He therefore decided to start up his own fish export company, selling "Chris' Danish fish to England" – hence the name; Chrisfish Danmark.
Since its founding in 1962, Chrisfish Danmark has continuously grown and has established offices at various locations in the northern part of Denmark. Today we have approx. 50 employees and from our local offices we sell our products to a long range of European countries.
