BEDFORD, NS, March 7, 2013 /CNW/ - Clearwater Seafoods is giving
consumers and foodservice operators a delectable and easy-to-prepare
seafood solution with the launch of its new value-added product garlic
cream Scallops & Sauce. The MSC-certified product consisting of
garlic-cream enrobed scallops is available now and will roll-out to
North American grocery retailers and restaurants throughout 2013.
"Following the highly successful launch of bacon-wrapped scallops, we're
working diligently to innovate and develop new products that fit the
needs of our foodservice and retail partners," says Jeff Duffin, Vice
President, Marketing, Clearwater Seafoods LP. "By involving our
customers in the innovation process, along with a focus on consumer
research and insights, we're able to deliver exciting new products like
Scallops & Sauce."
To create this innovative product, each Clearwater wild-caught and
fresh-frozen scallop is enrobed in a premium garlic cream sauce. The
end result is a perfectly coated scallop that goes from frozen to
finished in as little as six minutes. Just toss them in a pan, stir and
serve, or alternatively, prepare them in the microwave. Pair Scallops &
Sauce with pasta, risotto, chicken, steak, fish, or even on their own
with a salad on the side - the possibilities are endless.
"Clearwater is focused on innovating and positioning our products to
deliver superior customer satisfaction and value," says Ian Smith, CEO,
Clearwater Seafoods LP. "Our MSC-certified wild Scallops & Sauce
underscores our ongoing commitment to understanding and delivering
superior value to our customers while staying true to our mission of
sustainable seafood excellence."
Clearwater garlic cream Scallops & Sauce come individually packed in 8
oz portions for retail and 6 oz portions for foodservice with
additional flavors to follow. They are available under the Clearwater
brand or can be customized for private label. Scallops & Sauce are
produced in a GFSI-accredited facility, meeting the highest food safety
& traceability standards.
