Market Report: November 2, 2020

-o-

We’re not just a seafood company anymore.

Our pork program is on point, thanks to our friends at Berkwood Farms! Their pork gets its flavor from the heirloom breed they raise. Berkshire Pork is the oldest breed of pork in existence today, and raised for the meat’s distinctive color and marbling – two character traits that make our pork tender, juicy, and flavorful every time.
Call us today for more info!

Icelandic Cod

Due to bad weather and high winds there is a limited amount of Iceland cod.  This has the prices up, and we expect them to continue to increase through next week. We continue to have shipments arriving twice a week. Call your sales rep for pricing and availability.

Arctic Char

Arctic Char is a unique strain of saltwater char sustainably farm-raised in Iceland. Often compared to salmon and trout, Arctic Char has a distinct, sweet buttery flavor and firm pink flesh that sets it apart from other fish on the market. We get this in twice a week; ask your sales rep for more info.
