Kopenhagen Fur chosen to sell Norwegian skins

The Norwegian Fur Breeders' Association has decided to say yes to a cooperation with Kopenhagen Fur. This means that, in the future, the Norwegian skins will be sold at Kopenhagen Fur's auctions instead of Saga Furs.

On 1 June, during the Norwegian Fur Breeders' Association (Norges Pelsdyralslag) annual meeting, it was decided to sell the Norwegian skins at Kopenhagen Fur's auctions instead of Saga Furs.

- We have chosen to make a cooperation with Kopenhagen Fur, because we believe that it is the best for the Norwegian fur trade. Kopenhagen Fur has a good collection and a good sale. So, we are very happy and have good faith in this cooperation, says Bertran Trane Skadsem, Chairman of the Norwegian Fur Breeders' Association.

- We are very happy about this. We have previously had a good cooperation with our Norwegian colleagues, so we are glad to have them back. Obviously, this also means that we get a larger market share, so it is in line with the company's goals, says Tage Pedersen, chairman of the Danish Fur Breeders' Association.

Kopenhagen Fur previously had a cooperation with the Norwegian Fur Breeders' Association, when the Danish fur breeders were part of Saga Furs in a Scandinavian cooperation, which ended in 2004. Since then, the Norwegian Fur Breeders' Association has had an agreement with Saga Furs, where they recommended Saga Furs to their members. Several Norwegian farmers have sold their skins at Kopenhagen Fur's auctions during this period. However, starting from 1 June 2017, the Norwegian association will recommend Kopenhagen Fur to the Norwegian breeders and this will mean many more Norwegian skins sold in Denmark.

- Now, we recommend that our members should sell at Kopenhagen Fur and we will put a strong effort into that, says Bertran Trane Skadsem.
