In a press release by Kalu the company director commented on the purchase of Kongsbak:

“For us, it makes sense to help secure Kongsbak’s future operations, as we believe it is an important supplier in our industry of high-quality products to the restaurant and food industry. We have the same customer portfolio of quality-conscious chefs and restaurants who are used to an exclusive range and an ultra-high level of service,” says Kalu director Thomas Høy.

Until the bankruptcy, the company was run by the fifth generation, Jacob Kongsbak, who has been part of the company since childhood. He continues to handle daily operations after the company is transferred to Kalu and Skagerak Fiskeeksport.

Skagerak Fiskeeksport, which is also a family business, is owned by Christian Espersen.
