The company was founded in 1987 by Jørgen Pedersen. He had several years of experience and knew the fishing industry very well. Jørgen Pedersen formed Tenax Sild A/S with the specific ambition to create better products than those offered in the existing market. The quality had to be uncompromising.
The start was difficult due to fierce competition. But the ongoing persistence in keeping the high quality meant that the market noticed Tenax Sild. And today it is the herrings from Tenax Sild that are in great demand by customers both in Denmark and in the export markets.
