LFEX today announced that the market launch has been successfully completed with trading of Norwegian Salmon between selected counterparties on the industry leading electronic platform. Plans are now underway to incorporate additional features based on user feedback from both the buy and sell side.

The development, testing and implementation of a fully functional and secure electronic platform for pricing and trading of European salmon was completed and formally launched in late December 2019.

LFEX is now starting the process of the wider roll out of the platform to all interested counterparties, on both the buy and sell side for farmed European salmon globally, in-line with the company plans.

The company is fully funded, with a diverse shareholder base in US, UK and Europe, ensuring the company’s long term independence and enabling the company to roll out the platform with continued development of the technology for other markets, species and products.

The company has a well developed road-map for enhancements and additional features and functionality to support the growth of the platform, and providing greater services and efficiencies to the user communities based around customer feedback. LFEX expects to implement new features and functionality on a monthly basis and also technology enhancements to ensure the platform remains at the cutting edge. LFEX has built and released a world class multi-million dollar technology platform which allows it to scale up the business in terms of user numbers, products and geographic markets with ease, capable of operating 24 x 7 x 365.
