We are committed to sourcing only the most exceptional wild caught and sustainable seafood for our Fruits De Mer brand. Our fish is caught off the coasts of the Mediterranean Sea where it is immediately frozen. It is then transported to our state of art BRC and IFS approved facility. The BRC Global Standards is a leading brand and consumer protection agency ensuring the highest quality and safety protection in the manufacturing process of seafood. It is here that our fish is naturally defrosted in cold water. Our Anchovies and Sardines are gutted and filleted by hand to preserve the delicate quality. They are marinated using centuries old process which we refined for a unique American taste. During this method the fish is soaked for twelve hours in vinegar, cooking the fish without heat, so when they are removed from the marinade they have turned to a beautiful white color. As a result, our Anchovies and Sardines bear little resemblance to the canned variety. Our seafood is first cooked gently and then marinated to preserve the tender an fresh quality and seasoned with our distinctive blend of herbs and spices.
Our Fruits De Mer products are made with all-natural ingredients and are prepared by hand to maintain the beautiful quality and appeal resulting in the superior taste and fine texture. Blending in with the Mediterranean diets and its European neighbors, Fruits De Mer quickly became a gourmet staple within high-end restaurants and gourmet retailers. As a result of the exceptional taste, our Fruits De Mer brand is a proud recipient of numerous awards including The Great Taste Awards.
