Chesapeake Bay Crabcakes and Wild Oats Go Pink and Green

Share Article

Chesapeake Bay Crabcakes will supply Wild Oats with two new products: crab cakes and shrimp cakes made from wild harvested shrimp from Key West, Florida. Using catch and release nets, the purveyors will save the turtles and bring in the sweet, special shrimp in an "all green" method. Both products contain only healthy ingredients. No hydrogenated fats. This is a landmark partnership and represents Chesapeake Bay's ability to meet the special needs of customers and the public.

Astral Foods (dba) Chesapeake Bay Crabcakes and More and Wild Oats Natural Marketplace have teamed up to offer two all-natural products, crab cakes and shrimp cakes. Neither product contains any hydrogenated fats or oils, and are made with unbleached flour ingredients.

Tom Quinn, Vice President/Sales of Astral Foods says, “The development of products for Wild Oats demonstrates our ability to be challenged by our customers and because of our flexibility and resources, we are able to satisfy those needs to deliver products that meet changing customer demands.”

These two all-natural gourmet seafood products reflect a growing interest in better foods, pure and simple. Joseph Sabbagh, for Wild Oats says, “We’re so excited to partner with Astral Foods to offer these two healthy, flavorful products. We believe our customers will be coming back and back for more.”

The brilliant pink sweet shrimp, wild-caught off the coast of Key West, Florida are also “green.” The vessels which harvest the shrimp use by-catch reduction devices (BYRDS) and have the lowest by-catch ratio of any shrimp fleet in the world. Sea turtles are safely released. Cox’s Wholesale Seafood, purveyors of the All-American shrimp, fish only in federally approved waters and stay out of protected coral reefs and sea grass beds.

Astral Foods, the 25-year-old company has firmly established itself as a household name with its specialty line of handmade, hand-picked jumbo lump crab cakes and other all-natural ingredient gourmet seafood products.(

Steve Cohen, CEO says, “We are so excited about this new product line produced exclusively for Wild Oats. We believe this will serve the needs of the all natural foods generation and shows our company’s ability to stay ahead of the curve.”
