Skansen Herring is made from the finest quality, wild-caught herring. The delicate and hearty taste, the authentic flavor, and special texture of our herring makes Skansen the More Herring.

Skansen Matjes Herring comes in a spiced marinade that is full-bodied and lends this product its special note. Our Herring in Wine Sauce and Herring in Sour Cream Sauce are made in the finest Scandinavian tradition, and offer consumers a unique, healthy treat.


The company has been in the herring business under the Skansen label since its inception. The Skansen brand was the first to offer a variety of consumer-sizesd jars, in a market of only bulk suppliers. 

Today, we search the world over for the absolute finest quality herring to put under the Skansen label, including Herring in Wine Sauce and Herring in Sour Cream Sauce from Canada, and Matjes Herring packed according to our specifications in Finland.

All of our Wine Sauce and Sour Cream sauce products carry the OU (Kosher) Seal. Our Matjes carries the K (Kosher) Seal from Rabbi Meir Horden of the Central Rabanut of Sweden.
