Products on the Market
Pescanova, a leading seafood supplier based in Spain, is bringing its premium seafood products to U.S. foodservice. MSC-certified Cape Hake and Protein Pasta made from responsibly sourced wild Alaska pollock are now available to satisfy consumers seeking delicious, high-quality seafood options on menu. Caught off of the coast of Namibia, Cape Hake is flash frozen as soon as it’s caught to maintain the highest quality, taste and texture. Cape Hake has a flaky texture and a mild, subtly sweet flavor — the perfect choice for consumers seeking a simple white fish without the “fishy” taste. The wild-caught fish comes pre-cut in 3-ounce, 4-ounce and 5-ounce portions and fillets and can be prepared in a variety of ways to align with your menu needs. Pescanova Protein Pasta is a gluten-free, low-carb pasta alternative that delivers the great taste and texture of traditional pasta with the naturally nutritious benefits of seafood. While there are many new alternative pastas coming to menus, Pescanova Protein Pasta is the only pasta made from wild Alaska pollock, a mild, lean whitefish responsibly sourced from the pristine waters of Alaska.
