Global Fresh Foods Paves Way for Salmon Producers to Access European and Asian Markets
GFF Expands Offering Beyond Salmon Fillets to Whole Head On and Head Off Trims
SAN FRANCISCO, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Global Fresh Foods (www.globalfreshfoods.com), the company that naturally extends the shelf life of fresh foods, today announced that it has successfully tested its technology with H&G (head off and gutted) and HOG (head on and gutted) salmon. The recent 30-day tests demonstrated that both H&G and HOG trims can be shipped by sea using Global Fresh Foods’ controlled atmosphere technology and arrive at the destination market with the same fresh quality as those transported by air, and provide a better alternative than shipping frozen fish.
Until now, Global Fresh Foods’ oxygen reducing technology has primarily been used to ship salmon fillets from Chile to the United States. GFF can now offer salmon producers across the globe the ability to expand into new geographies, and opens the door to reach customers in Asia and Europe where H&G and HOG trims are preferred.
“Chilean and other salmon producers can now compete on a global scale by utilizing the Global Fresh Foods controlled atmosphere system to reach any market, in any trim. They are no longer limited to selling to the American market which is heavily fillet oriented,” said Mark Barnekow, chief executive office of Global Fresh Foods. “We recognized the global market for salmon includes large volumes of H&G and HOG trims. Producers can now ship these trims fresh instead of frozen and can maximize their quality and market price.”
