"Valdres Rakfisk" is a collaboration between six local producers of “rakfisk" (a special preparation method for fish). They have created a brand that gives associations to Cognac and other internationally known products with a strong local origin. The graphic system opens for local differentiation between the producers, but the totality is strong enough to tell one story. The graphic expression, the packaging design and the elegant logo gives Valdres Rakfisk an international dimension.
