Bjarni Ármannsson said: “I’m very grateful for the opportunity to lead Iceland Seafood for the last almost 5 years.

Its unique position in delivering quality seafood to its customers, particularly in Europe is something that has been developed for a very long time and remains with many good opportunities".
