Manchester, MA (PRWEB) September 23, 2015 -- Lewis Mills & Co., a leading seafood sourcing company announced today they have achieved preferred vendor status from Nordic Halibut AS of Norway to market their farm raised whole fish in the United States.
Nordic Halibut AS is the leading breeder and farmer of sustainable Norwegian Atlantic farmed halibut. Nordic Halibut oversees the entire life cycle of the halibut - from egg to marketable fish. The halibut is processed and packed for immediate delivery in Nordic Halibut’s facility, reaching the U.S. market in a matter of hours. As a result, the halibut’s shelf life is unprecedented compared to wild halibut that often spends days at sea before being delivered to market.
Norwegian Atlantic halibut has a firm white meat with a mild flavor, which makes both the preparation and serving of the fish a true pleasure. The halibut is an excellent high protein source of Omega-3 fatty acids and fits the “center of the plate” profile for foodservice operators and retail supermarkets. Nordic Halibut offers consistent flavor, dependable delivery and fixed pricing 12 months a year.
