Verlasso®, the world’s first provider of harmoniously raised fish, and Acme Smoked Fish Corporation, a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based producer and distributor of smoked fish, will unveil Verlasso Smoked Salmon during the 2013 Fancy Food Show, Jan. 20-22, 2013 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The new product will be available to retail and food industry seafood purveyors through Acme’s premium, all-natural Blue Hill Bay® Smoked Seafood brand. Show attendees can sample and learn more about Verlasso Smoked Salmon at the Acme booth #883.
“Verlasso Smoked Salmon gives our retail and food industry partners an all-natural, preservative-free and sustainable smoked salmon choice that focuses on continually improving salmon farming for both our health and the environment,” said Gabriel Viteri, vice president of strategy and business development for Acme Smoked Fish Corporation. “Purchasers of these naturally cured and smoked salmon selections will get the benefit of Blue Hill Bay’s time-tested technique that results in delicious fish that can be enjoyed during any meal and a variety of different recipes.”
Verlasso’s Harmoniously Raised difference creates a better environment for fish to grow into great-tasting salmon with a shimmery quality, full fins and bright eyes. A critical aspect of the Verlasso approach protects ocean biodiversity through an innovative solution to the depletion of our world’s fisheries. Specifically, Verlasso lowers the “fish in, fish out” ratio of the salmon’s diet – the pounds of wild caught feeder fish needed to produce one pound of salmon – from the industry standard of 4:1 for fish oil and fish meal to 1:1 without compromising healthy levels of Omega-3s in the salmon’s diet.
“We provide conscientious consumers who care about delicious, healthy, sustainably-raised seafood with salmon that is raised harmoniously, and our partnership with Acme offers seafood enthusiasts choices beyond our already-available Verlasso whole fish and fillets,” said Alfonso Marquez de la Plata, CEO of AquaChile. “Acme’s Blue Hill Bay brand is widely recognized as a leader in all-natural smoked seafood, and we’re proud to offer Verlasso Smoked Salmon to retailers and the food industry under the respected Blue Hill Bay name.”
