Godthaab í Nöf Plc was founded on October 15th 2001. The first task was to re-design the company headquarters at Gardavegur 14, which had previously been a processing plant for salted- and dried fish and, in more recent years, a saltfish storage facility. The building was in bad disrepair and the following months saw a lot of effort and hard work put into getting it in order for food processing. All the hard work paid off and processing began on February 2nd 2002. In the beginning the company had a staff of 20 persons and the processing equipment was comprised of a modified Baader 189 filleting machine, a second-hand flow line, two freezing compartments and two freezing containers, in which the fully processed products were stored. During the following years the operation grew steadily, the number of employees increased and the second floor of the building in which the company was situated was acquired. A new freezer was built and machinery and equipment expanded in accordance with the growing operation. In 2010 a new 680 m2 extension was added to the building. Today there are between 90-100 (70) employees in Godthaab and 5500 (4000) tons of raw material are processed annually.
