Seafish UK and The UK Foodhall have joined forces in an exciting collaboration, revolutionising New Product Development and bringing two delectable seafood offerings to the tables of a major chain restaurant in the UK, starting this October. The fruits of their partnership, the Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Cod Seastars and the Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Salmon Seastars, are poised to delight diners with their exquisite flavours and remarkable health benefits.
The foundation of this alliance can be traced back to 2021 when Seafish UK and The UK Foodhall embarked on a journey to explore the potential of seafood innovation together. Both organisations recognised the importance of developing unique and nutritious products to cater to the evolving tastes and dietary preferences of consumers. Through shared values and a commitment to excellence, they established a strong working relationship built on mutual trust and innovation.
The culmination of their collaboration comes in the form of the Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Cod Seastars, Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Salmon Seastars and the Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Salmon and Sweet Potato Fishcakes. These products represent a harmonious fusion of Seafish UK’s expertise in sourcing and processing high-quality seafood and The UK Foodhall’s culinary mastery in crafting innovative dishes.
Not only do the Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Cod Seastars and Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Salmon Seastars offer a tantalising dining experience, but they also boast a myriad of health benefits. As a nutritious alternative to meat, fish provides essential omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals necessary for optimal growth and development, particularly in children which is why they have been a firm favourite in schools for the past 2 menu cycles. Omega-3 fatty acids have been linked to improved brain function, reduced inflammation, and a healthy heart. Including seafood in a balanced diet can contribute to overall well-being and help establish healthy eating habits from an early age.
By offering these innovative seafood options, The UK Foodhall and Seafish UK are championing the cause of healthy eating while delivering a delightful culinary experience. The introduction of the Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Cod Seastars and Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Salmon Seastars showcases the commitment of these organisations to continuously innovate and meet the changing needs of consumers seeking nutritious and flavourful dining options.Speaking about the collaboration, Emma Acklam, Head of Retail Sales, NPD and Marketing at Seafish UK, expressed her excitement, stating, “Our collaboration with The UK Foodhall has been a remarkable journey, driven by a shared passion for culinary excellence and promoting the health benefits of seafood. We are thrilled to introduce the Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Cod Seastars and Harry Ramsden’s Junior MSC Salmon Seastars along with The UK Foodhall in this major restaurant, providing a truly exceptional seafood dining experience
