Norwegian company fined for selling whale meat in Germany

One year after WDC exposed Norwegian whale meat illegally on sale at one of the world’s biggest food and agricultural fairs in Germany, the Berlin Public Prosecutor has ruled that Arne Roed, managing director of Ford Norge and Innovation Norway, the company responsible for the stand, must pay a fine of 1,000 EUR.

After discovering the whale meat was on sale at the Berlin Green Week exhibition, WDC immediately informed the relevant authorities. Customs investigators seized the unsold whale meat and a criminal investigation relating to the illegal import and export and sale of meat was undertaken.
