Chef Martha teams up with Cooke

Fish Farmer - - News World -

COOKE Aqua­cul­ture sub­sidiary True North Seafood has an­nounced it is to part­ner with US celebrity Martha Ste­wart to de­velop a line of ready-made meals. Dishes will fea­ture salmon, pol­lock and scal­lops. The com­pany’s Joel Richard­son said Ste­wart was a long-time fan of the firm’s prod­ucts. ‘She came out to visit our salmon farms a cou­ple of years ago and was very im­pressed by the op­er­a­tion… and wanted to look at op­por­tu­ni­ties to work to­gether,’ said Richard­son.

Ste­wart was quoted as say­ing she had served seafood from Cooke Aqua­cul­ture ‘for years’ and had vis­ited the com­pany’s op­er­a­tion near her home in Seal Har­bour, Maine.

‘I saw first-hand their in­no­va­tive and in­dus­try lead­ing meth­ods of sus­tain­able farm­ing and fish­ing,’ she said.

Richard­son said: ‘Martha and her chef team worked with us to cre­ate the recipes, cre­ate the pair­ings be­tween our seafood prod­ucts and our spice blends.’

The prod­ucts will be un­veiled in March at the Seafood Expo North Amer­ica in Bos­ton be­fore hit­ting the shelves in the United States in May. A Cana­dian roll-out will fol­low later in 2019.
