Small town at Kattegatt, huge in langoustines

The number of residents in Gilleleje is low. 7000 people live in the municipality of Gribskov in Denmark. But their langoustines, or in English, “Norway Lobsters”, are huge, immense in numbers. And phenomenal in taste.

Gilleleje is located at the Kattegatt, a name that Dutch seamen gave to the strait between Halland in Sweden and Jutland in Denmark, meaning “close passage”. This makes Gilleleje well accessible to Sweden. And with that, their langoustines are also well accessible to Sweden. And of course, for all buyers at Pefa.

On a regular Friday some fish will be supplied at Gilleleje: about 17 boxes of cod, a box of mackerel, 5 boxes of tongue. But it is nothing compared to the 273 boxes of langoustines which arrives.

Gilleleje is alive. Because of the langoustines.
