Open Blue, the 2017 winner of the best new Foodservice product at the Seafood Expo North America will introduce a new range of premium frozen Cobia products for both foodservice and retail applications at this year’s Boston show (Booth 1859.) This new offering includes IVP fixed weight Cobia portions, buffet cuts and taco strips.
To meet the growing interest for fixed weight and customized portions, the company expanded its production facility with a multi-million dollar investment, enabling at-source portioning and inline freezing.’ Open Blue is also expanding its portion range with a branded 10 oz. retail pack and a 2 lb. IVP Club pack format.
“For our foodservice customers, we know that inventory management, labor efficiency and controlling wastage is an important part of the overall product offer. Our new fresh frozen products lock in the fresh-caught quality that people love. We believe by investing in our total cold storage chain, including super-freezing at -35°C we help our customers save time, improve inventory control and increase efficiencies.” says Bernie Leger, VP Sales and Marketing, Open Blue.
