Niceland Seafood is an Icelandic company that provides fish that comes with full supply chain traceability.[1]

History

A visit to Iceland inspired former Head of Innovation at The Walt Disney Company and founder and former CEO of theAudience,[2]Oliver Luckett, to get into the seafood business with his business partner, entrepreneur and Icelandic politician who helped launch the Best Party, Heiða Kristín Helgadóttir. They started an Iceland-based holding company called EFNI[3] in 2015. In June 2018, Luckett[4] and Helgadottir together launched Niceland Seafood, which is backed by EFNI and Iceland-based investment firm Eyrir Invest.[5]

Operations

Niceland’s digital tracing technology[6] allows consumers to follow the detailed journey of each fish, including the location where the fish was caught or raised, the name of the boat that caught it or farm that produced it, the processing plant that filleted the fish, transport details, and the distributor that delivered it to the end destination.[7][8] With this digital tracing technology, Niceland Seafood is taking a stand against seafood fraud.[9]

Partnerships

Niceland began with one wholesale partner in Denver, Seattle Fish Co.[10][11][12]

Sustainability

All of the wild-caught fish Niceland sources are certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship council, and the farm-raised fish are certified sustainable by the Aquaculture Stewardship Council.[13][14][15]
