Finding the plus in plus-products

Norilia's business is based on raw materials from Nortura and independent abattoirs in Norway and Sweden. Co-streams, or plus-products, make up around 35% of all biomass received by the meat industry from animals and eggs. Plus-products are therefore very important resources for value creation – and creating value from these products is exactly what Norilia does. Norilia sells 150,000-160,000 tons of plus-products per year, and create added value through our competence, collaboration, and innovation.

Norilia has an international focus, with products in nutrition and ingredients, pet food, natural casings, offal, bone and meat products, hides and skins, and wool. Today, they have nearly 50 employees and a turnover of around 500 million Norwegian kroner, with 70% from export.

More than 60 years of experience

Nortura has worked with plus-products since the 1950s. Wool, hide and skin, and natural casings were among the first products groups established. Norilia was established as a separate company in 2000, with full responsibility for sales and value creation for plus-products from all livestock species.
