State-of-the-art freezing and processing technology preserves the flavour, colour, and nutritional value of the shrimp, allowing you to offer your customers a product year-round that looks and tastes like it just came out of the water. Our coldwater shrimp features a distinctive rich flavour, with delicate sweetness, and juicy, firm texture, making them the perfect addition to any dish.

Taste the difference

Wild caught coldwater shrimp, averaging 5-10 cm in length, are much smaller than their warm water cousins, but are also considered to be more flavourful. Cooked, the shell is pink and the meat is an opaque white, tinged with pink. The meat is firm and crisp in texture, juicy, and sweet.
