Fresh Fish Every Morning from Tukkutori of Helsinki

Kalamesta is a Finnish fish wholesaler catering for the growing fish market since 1989. Our core strengths are Finnish craftsmanship, skilled personnel and, of course, ecologically and responsibly produced fish.

Story of Kalamesta

The story of Kalamesta begins in Sörnäinen, Helsinki, where Jyrki Einiö and Juhani Larjos established their first place of business. Offering high-quality fish to meet the needs of customers has been the strongest of the company’s operating principles since the beginning. Over the years, sales have stabilized and operations grown. The decision was taken to expand business and improve customer service even further. These values still guide Kalamesta’s daily operations and the company is still located in the same area. Today, Kalamesta is a strong national player whose market area is the whole of Northern Europe.

From Near and Far, Fresh and Frozen

Kalamesta develops, manufactures and sells its products to retail stores, large supermarket chains, the hotel and restaurant industry, as well as to other wholesalers.

The Origin of our Fish

Kalamesta carefully selects its suppliers and supervises their procedures. We emphasize freshness and certified raw materials in all our purchases. Kalamesta’s operation has always been based on responsibility. As proof of this, for a long time, we have ensured that our suppliers have MSC and ASC certifications. We source fish from sustainable fish stocks and prefer local operators. This encourages responsible fishing.


Our ongoing recruitment policy requires new personnel who are interested in participating in our ever developing operating environment, the strengths of which are based on Finnish craftsmanship, using skilled workers to responsibly produce ecological fish products.
