The Hätälä Family – 4th Generation Family Business

“The story of our company began in 1938 when my grandfather, Juho Isohätälä, started selling fish on the market square in the port city of Oulu, Finland. Hätälä is still a true family business and we are proud to uphold traditional family business values. We aim to serve our customers at least as well as when the fish was sold one at a time and face to face at the market.”

Riku Isohätälä, CEO

The freshest fish for European consumers

Hätälä’s fish comes from the world’s purest arctic waters. The salmon’s journey from Norway to our factory takes only 8-12 hours. This is why the salmon we use is always very fresh.

Working with local fishermen

We buy our Finnish fish from professional Finnish fishermen. They are our valued partners and we have worked with a number of them for three generations. Hätälä supports local fishermen, for instance by offering long-term contracts and assisting with transportation.
