St. Simons Island, Georgia-based SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co. is targeting youngsters in the United States with newly launched SeaPak Shrimp Sea Pals now available in the frozen food departments of a number of leading retail stores across the USA.
Containing 14 grams of protein per serving and no artificial preservatives or colors, the sea turtle and starfish-shaped shrimp bites are a good source of daily fiber and nutrients. Wrapped in crunchy whole grain breading, the Sea Pals are designed to encourage kids to eat the recommended two servings of seafood each week, as advised by the Dietary Guidelines for America.
“This is one of our most exciting innovations to-date,” said Kristen Beadon, director of marketing for SeaPak. “Our goal is to make seafood an easy fit for everyday life, and by turning mealtime into an ‘under-the-sea adventure’ with SeaPak Shrimp Sea Pals, we’re doing just that.”
Recent studies conducted by American Academy of Pediatrics show that kids in the United States aren’t eating enough seafood.
“Knowing there was a real need for a kid-centric product in the frozen seafood aisle, we created SeaPak Shrimp Sea Pals,” added Beadon. “Now, parents have a freezer-friendly option that offers all the health benefits of seafood children often miss out on, complete with a kid-friendly taste and a great fun factor.”
Listed at a suggested retail price of $7.99, each 16-ounce package of SeaPak Shrimp Sea Pals contains five servings. The product can currently be found in the freezer aisles of Publix, Ahold-Delhaize, Food Lion and other retail stores..
Ranked as America’s No. 1 frozen seafood brand, SeaPak has been using coastal-inspired recipes to make tasty shrimp and seafood products for more than 70 years. The company is a unit of Buffalo, New York-headquartered Rich Products.
