The new family-size packages of fish nuggets and fish tenders, which are made with crispy, breaded, whole muscle Alaska Pollock, are scheduled to arrive in stores later this month. The larger, more economical family packs come in either 22-ounce or 23-ounce packages and provide families with an opportunity to add seafood protein to their meal at least twice weekly as recommended by the USDA. The whole family will enjoy a quick, easy and delicious meal in less than 15 minutes.
American Pride Seafoods offers a healthier option to many of the breaded fish products that are currently on the market. The new products are made with 100 percent whole Alaska Pollock, not minced fish. The products are frozen at sea for maximum freshness and flavor, ensuring that consumers will enjoy more real, wholesome fish in every bite. With zero grams of Trans Fats and no preservatives or MSG, these new products will give the whole family a positive, healthy dining experience with the convenience consumers look for.
