THE MAIN FISH SPECIES PRODUCED
All products are dried in indoor chambers where heat and humidity are constantly monitored to ensure the highest quality.
In recent years, Langa has followed strict quality control policies and worked closely with Nigerian buyers to achieve their current good reputation for reliability and quality products.
In the year 2014, a new belt drier, the most technologically advanced of its type in the world, was purchased. This increased Langa‘s production capacity by 60% and has further enabled Langa to guarantee product quality. In addition, a new 1000m2 extension to the premises, containing a new packing area and extra after-drying facilities, were taken into use.

The main buyer of our dried fish products is Nigeria. The main dryfish markets in Nigeria are located in Aba, in Abia State, and Lagos. There is a long history of trade relations between Iceland and Nigeria. By the early eighties Nigeria was the third largest importer of fish products from Iceland, following The United States and Great Britain.These sales have increased anually and total around 20 000 tonnes per annum today. Sales peak before Christmas and other celebrations but usually decrease during the rainy season, from May to September. Langa exports under the trade name LAN Dryfish.
Langa, in association with other dryfish producers in Iceland, supports the charitable project, Mission for Vision, run by the Tulsi Chanrai Foundation. This project provides free corrective eye surgery for the blind. Blindness at a young age due to cateracts and glaucoma is a common problem in Nigeria and leads to unemployment and dependency. Below is an extract from a letter of thanks received by Langa from the Tulsai Chanrai Foundation in 2014.
