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. This product contains 5-7 fermented herrings. Net weight 300 g.
Oskars (Fillets) Surströmming
This can contain filleted surströmming that is quite convenient to use. Filleted fish don't need to be gutted. The taste is slightly less rich compared to the whole surströmming. This can is therefore well suited for beginners. Filleted surströmming does not have any roe. Some consider the roe to be a delicacy. This product contains 5-7 fermented herrings. Net weight 300 g.
Röda Ulven, (The Red Wolf) was established in 1946. Röda Ulven soon became synonymous with fermented herring with its eye-catching packaging and is today Sweden's leading brand. 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 that is quite convenient to use. The drawback is that no fish contains roe. Contains 6-8 fermented herrings. Net weight 300 g.

Sweetened flat bread, Gammeldags Tunnbröd (320 g)
Flatbread is a thin and crispy bread which suits to all different toppings from ham, cheese and jam to smoked fish and other seafood. Swedish people eat the bread for breakfast and evening snack as well as dinner side bread with for example seasoned butter. In Sweden it’s a must to the famous, or notorious, fermented herring.
Besides high-quality ingredients, a special baking technique is used. It is type of baking with a rosted golden surface of the bread with brown tops instead of white bread with burnt tops as you can see in other brands. This makes a rich and smooth taste.

Mannerströms surströmming is the Rolls-Royce of fermented herrings. Especially if you are a gourmet that loves when your surströmming contains fish roe. This model only contains exclusively handpicked females with roe.
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.
