Stavis Introduces Prince Edward Frozen Organic Mussels
Boston, Massachusetts-based Stavis Seafoods, a vertically integrated importer and manufacturer of seafood products, has unveiled frozen Prince Edward Whole Organic Mussels, available in both one-pound retail-ready bags and two-pound foodservice packages.
The product is certified as an organic seafood item by Global Trust and an as ocean-friendly seafood choice by OceanWise. The mussels are sustainably grown in Newfoundland waters on the East Coast of Canada. Processing takes place in a BAP-rated facility, where the shellfish is cooked and packed at the peak of the season to ensure high meat yields.
“Stavis Seafoods has a long history of innovation and excellence, and we are excited to add an organic product to our line of responsibly harvested seafood,” said CEO Chuck Marble. “This item provides the flavor and texture of fresh organic mussels with the greater convenience of a frozen product that consumers and chefs desire. Canadian mussels are known for their superior quality, and we believe our new offering represents the best mussel value in today’s marketplace.”
The mussels are sized 17/22ct/lb and conveniently packed in 10-pound master cases.
Stavis Seafoods has been a Boston Waterfront landmark and seafood industry pioneer since 1929. Originally called the Stavis Ipswich Clam Company, today’s multinational operation sources products from fishing vessels and processing plants around the world. Its wide line of brands includes BOS’N, ChillFresh, Foods From the Sea, Boston Pride and Ocean Delight, as well as Prince Edward.
