History of Barentz Finland

Barentz has been active in Finland since 2002 from our office in Denmark.

Established in 2006, Casmo Oy (now Barentz Finland Oy) has gained a steady foothold as a Finnish food industry goods supplier. Our strong position is based on our customer-oriented and flexible service, our high level of professional expertise and commitment, our reliability, and long-term collaboration with quality-conscious customers and leading suppliers in the field.

Our customer base consists primarily of Finnish operators in the meat, convenience food, fish, dairy, bakery, and pet food industries. We offer our customers the opportunity to buy their products in a single order, all “under the same roof”, and we invest in rapid and reliable delivery.

In 2014, Barentz acquired Maustepalvelu (MP Spice Service), specialized in customized blends for the meat-, fish- and snacks industries. Casmo Oy specialized in casings, smoke condensates, and flavors for the meat industry followed in 2019. For Barentz International, these acquisitions strengthened the offering to customers in the Human Nutrition market.

In August 2017, Casmo Oy’s branch office Casmo Ab Filial began to sell Kerry Red ArrowTM smoke condensates and flavors in Sweden and Denmark.

On May 2nd 2019, Casmo Oy’s owners sold their entire share to Barentz and on January 1st 2022, Casmo Oy officially changed its name to Barentz Finland Oy. The new name better communicates our position as part of the Barentz Group. From now on, Barentz Finland Oy will focus on the sale of raw materials on its own and Barentz’s leading suppliers and will develop these operations. MP-Maustepalvelu Oy will focus on its core competence of mixing and developing it in Finland and, of course, the export sectors.
