Oskar Söderström founded Oskars Surströmming in 1955. He created the first barrel of fermented herring the same year. Oskar was not satisfied with the outcome at first. He did not give up; instead, he gradually refined the product. Soon he reached perfection, and his surströmming was ready to be launched onto the market. In 1966 the first can came with the name Oskars. Whole surströmming has fish roe; many consider the fish roe to be a delicacy. The product contains 5-7 whole fermented herrings and has a net weight of 300g.
This can contain filleted surströmming, which is quite convenient to use. Filleted fish don't need to be gutted, and the taste is slightly less rich compared to the whole surströmming. This can is, therefore, well suited for beginners, both in terms of how easy it is to eat and the taste. The product contains 5-7 fermented herrings. Net weight 300g.
Röda Ulven (Fillets) Surströmming
Röda Ulven, (The Red Wolf) was established in 1946. Röda Ulven soon became synonymous with fermented herring with its eye-catching packaging and is Sweden's leading brand today. Röda Ulven has taken its name from Ulvön, (Wolfs Island), the Mecca of the Swedish surströmming. The word "Röda" (red) comes from that the island completely glows in red thanks to the beautiful red Rapakivi granite.
This can contain filleted surströmming, which is quite convenient to use. It includes 6-8 fermented herrings and has a net weight of 300g.

This brand packs a bit more punch and is rich in aromas. The herrings are fished early and fermented longer than other brands. That method gives it more flavor. The recipe is developed by the famous star chef Leif Mannerström, and the cans are produced by Gösta Hanells fish saltery, famous for the brand Röda Ulven.
