A world of herring & fishspecialities
About Tenax Sild
The company was founded in 1987 by Jørgen Pedersen. He had several years of experience and knew the fishing industry very well. Jørgen Pedersen formed Tenax Sild A/S with the specific ambition to create better products than those offered in the existing market. The quality had to be uncompromising.
The start was difficult due to fierce competition. But the ongoing persistence in keeping the high quality meant that the market noticed Tenax Sild. And today it is the herrings from Tenax Sild that are in great demand by customers both in Denmark and in the export markets.
Our most famous brands are Lykkeberg 1899, Fiskemandens and Tenax Sild.
The basis was – and still is – the fat herring from the clear waters between Iceland and Norway. The herring was also to be processed by hand by professionals who were experienced enough to know precisely how to cut the fillets so that both appearance and taste was optimal. And so it remains.
Tenax Sild is a true family company. The son, Michael Pedersen, has taken over the family business. Several family members are also employed in the company and it also means that the other employees are considered a part of the family. It provides a common commitment and pride in working for a company where quality is never compromised.
In January 2015 Tenax Sild A/S acquired Denmark’s oldest producer of herring – Lykkeberg A/S.
In May 2018 Tenax Sild A/S merged with Launis A/S making Tenax Sild A/S the owner of all acitivities regarding herring, fishcakes, caviar as well as fish- and cod roe terrines.
