Crafting bespoke solutions for a seamless journey that unlocks growth opportunities.

“Spire did a market research and report on Indonesian aquafarming for us with multiple purposes: to give the Norwegian industry and introduction to this market, to display business opportunities, and to give recommendations on how to enter into business. With the report based in a very comprehensive data catch, Spire has been able to provide an easy but thorough introduction to a big and complex market and with relevant and well-founded recommendations. Feedback tells us that the Norwegian industry appreciates the work done. It has been a pleasure to work together with the Spire team.
