The Incubation Center in the Ocean Cluster House is now in use and are there currently three companies using the facilities. Two of the companies gave us a small presentation on Thursday, 12th of December. Ms Birgitta Baldursdóttir and Ms Sigrún Sigurðardóttir presented their company named True West. They are working on refining fish oil with an old method which does not require any heating of the fish oil and preserves the natural nutrients.
Garðar Stefánsson presented the company Íslenska Saltfélagið (Icelandic Salt Company) along with his partner Søren Rosenkilde. They are using hot water to distil salt from the sea of Breiðarfjörður on hot steel pans.
The presentations created a good atmosphere among the group and the presenters got several questions from the listeners. We would like to take the opportunity and welcome them to the Ocean Cluster House and hope their businesses will be fruitful in the coming years!
