10 years of experience - from pot to plate
The maiden voyage of "M/S Donna" started deep in the Varanger fjord in early 2010, in Nesseby / Unjárga, Finnmark. After short calls at Vardø and Mehamn, we ended up at North Cape where we decided to live and become true fishermen with a lot of help from the local and very experienced fishermen. We fished for cod, pollock, haddock and king crab on "M/S Donna" and later also on "M/S Dunderdonna" in the Porsanger fjord. During this time we also worked at different fish-factories. The fishery ended in 2014.
Knowing half of the king crab where considered waste, I knew there was a great potential and a better way of doing things - More sustainable and more circular.
In 2016 I decided to bring MS Donna back to life with all the good things, except fishing - this time out from Oslo. Since then we have delivered premium products to some of the worlds best restaurants.
We are working for responsible consumption and production, decent work and economic growth, innovation, climate action, and partnership.
"Having UNs sustainability goals as guidelines with numbers 12, 8, 9 and 13 in our statues, MS Donna is trying to make a difference with better sustainability. Supported and in collaboration with many alike."
- Founder, Kjell Olav Rugset
It gives us great pleasure to work with all of our partners, to; learn, adapt, develop, innovate, challenge, research, and ever-evolving.
As members of NoWaste! and NO17 we are working with some of the best institutions and persons in their field - going from linear to a circular economy.
