Salacgriva Joint Stock Company “Brīvais vilnis” is located on the right bank of the Salaca River, at the eastern seaboard of the Gulf of Riga. The distance from Riga is 100 km.

56 years elapsed last year since the day when, by the decision of the Ministry of Fisheries of the SSR of Latvia, the Collective Fish Farm “Brīvais vilnis” was founded.

When Latvia regained its independence and economic reforms were introduced, the collective fish farm was reorganised into a joint stock company in 1992, which signified a new stage in the history of the enterprise.
Within a short period of time, the Joint Stock Company “Brīvais vilnis” became one of the biggest and most economically stable fish processing enterprises in the Baltics gaining the dominant position.

The Joint Stock Company “Brīvais vilnis” was the first enterprise in the Baltics awarded a certificate of compliance with the requirements of the EU Directive 91/493/EEC, which made it possible to export products to the EU member states.

The Joint Stock Company “Brīvais vilnis” was the first fish-processing enterprise in the Baltics, which started to manufacture fish preserves in lithographed Hansa 190 g and Dingly 100 g easy-open tins. Only after the acceptance of such type of packaging and design, other Baltic fish preserve manufacturers decided to invest in the installation of such lines.

The Joint Stock Company “Brīvais vilnis” is the first and (so far) the only fish-processing enterprise in the Baltic and CIS states, which started to produce exclusive fish preserves. “Brīvais vilnis” is also the only fish-processing enterprise in the Baltics, which has purchased special equipment for fish sorting. That allows controlling fully and guaranteeing invariable quality of the end products.

Our company is a member of the Society “Rīgas šprotes”. This organisation is a collective owner of the „Rīgas šprotes eļļā” trademark, thus controlling the quality of the products manufactured by the members of the Society; it also draws up recommendations for the improvement of the quality of the products

At the moment, the Joint Stock Company “Brīvais vilnis” has about 800 employees, the assortment of the products manufactured and offered by the company exceeds 70 items, and the company is continuously working on the extension of the assortment of fish products.
