Goose Point Takes Best Shot with Frozen Oyster Shooters
Who says oysters don’t serve up well after freezing? Certainly not the folks at Bay Center, Washington, USA-based Nisbet Oyster Co. Their Goose Point Oyster Shooters proved to be right on target with shellfish lovers during the March 19-21 Seafood Expo North America in Boston.
Featuring Willapa Bay oyster meats in zesty signature cocktail sauce, the Shooters are presented in traditional two-ounce shot glasses packed in units of 24 per case. They can be conveniently stocked and later thawed when needed for big events or smaller occasions alike. Wholesale orders are available in lightweight polycarbonate shot glasses.
Among other products, Sales Manager Josh Valdez and fellow members of the team on the scene in Boston were also promoting BlueSeal high-pressure processed oysters, which are sold in frozen and non-frozen formats. They feature oysters specially cultivated for high meat quality and consistent shape and size. Individually pouched, the meat retains its natural moisture, texture and flavor.
For those with appetites for another kind of shellfish, Clambake in 5 and Steamers in 5 offerings may be of interest. Each is ready to serve after only five minutes of microwave preparation. The Steamers feature a pound of tender, fully cooked clams prepared in a blend of signature spices, garlic and butter sauce.
About the Company
In 1975, David and Maureene Nisbet began farming 10 acres of tideland in the southwest corner of Washington state known as Willapa Bay. After harvest they sold totes of iced oysters out of the back of a single pickup truck to seafood connoisseurs from Seattle to Portland and beyond. The advent of a 400-square-foot processing plant put them on the map, and before long the company installed state-of-the-art technology to advance its farmed shell-stock oyster and shucked oyster business.
Today, daughter Kathleen helps guide operations at Goose Point, which is now a much larger operation that employs more than 80 full-time workers at its 1,900-acre farm.
