Based at the Port of Mõntu on the island of Saaremaa, VRHL’s refrigerated facility has been operating for 25 years. Everything we do is based on three principles: quality; good management; and keeping to agreements. Since our refrigeration plant is located right at the port, the fish our trawlers provide us with are as fresh as they could possibly be. We primarily make spiced fish products, but also frozen sprats and Baltic herring.
