Stolt Sea Farm (SSF) has extended its reach in the US with leading supermarket chain, Gelson’s, now selling its fresh turbot fillets.
SSF has had a presence in the US for some time, supplying its fresh seafood to a number of restaurants and high-end retailers, and having its products stocked in Gelson’s will further increase the visibility of its sustainably-produced, award-winning turbot among end consumers.
Established more than 70 years ago, Gelson’s prides itself on ‘superior produce for discerning customers’, with a reputation for stocking high-quality meat, seafood and deli goods. It will stock SSF’s 200-gram turbot fillets in all 27 of its stores along the west coast.
Vanessa Figueiredo, SSF’s West Europe and AMEA Area Manager, said: “We are delighted to have our product available in such a reputable store, which we can see shares our commitment to and passion for high-quality produce.
“We must thank our distribution partner, Fresh Gourmet Cuisine in Los Angeles, for helping us promote our delicious fresh turbot to a new US market.”
"It was also an opportunity to meet industry experts from all aspects of aquaculture and learn about new farming technologies and projects that might be applicable or adaptable to our own operations.”
