ShopRite this week announced a new line of premium frozen shrimp — the latest addition to ShopRite private brand. ShopRite Shrimp are preservative and antibiotic-free, and 100% sustainably sourced.
ShopRite Shrimp achieved four stars — the highest rating available from the Global Aquaculture Alliance – by meeting international standards for environmental and social responsibility. That means the retailer can trace the shrimp back to the farm where it’s raised and harvested before being flash frozen to lock in freshness and great taste.
ShopRite has been at the forefront of offering premium seafood to its customers, with an on-site seafood inspector and fresh deliveries to stores seven days a week. The ShopRite Shrimp comes in both cooked and raw frozen varieties, and the cooked variety is cooked in shell for maximum flavor and peeled afterwards for convenience. The only thing added to ShopRite Shrimp is natural sea salt.
“We are proud to offer this high quality shrimp, which also has a great story when it comes to sustainability. The farms where our ShopRite shrimp are raised follow responsible practices that minimize environmental impacts, respect worker rights, and produce food safely and sustainably. This signature addition to our private label is another example of our great premium brand ShopRite private label products that taste great and are top rated in the industry,” said Karen Meleta, spokesperson for ShopRite.
