Modern freezing technology is partly responsible for this shift.

Niceland Seafood Brings First Branded Line of Frozen Icelandic Fish to U.S. Retailers

  (ICELAND, 6/22/2020)

Niceland Seafood, the first consumer-facing provider of Icelandic fish to offer full traceability from "sea-to-pan", is shaking up the frozen category with resealable bags of wild-caught haddock and cod portions. The move into frozen is the first in a series of upcoming product innovations from Niceland that will help shoppers feel more confident making responsible seafood purchases and cooking more fish at home. Just like all of Niceland's products, its frozen line features the story behind the fish on pack, accessed easily by shoppers via a scannable QR code.

"To have more impact on macro seafood trends, we're evolving the Niceland brand experience, including the development of convenient frozen products that our target shopper wants, and retail partners have asked us for," says Niceland's CEO, Heida Kristin Helgadottir. "We see we have an increasingly important role to play in producing the best frozen fish products, and filling aisles with quality protein options."

Atlantic cod from Iceland’s cold waters tend to be larger than Pacific cod, and eat a varied diet of shellfish, crustaceans, and small fish that gives them their unique flavor.

Niceland's move into frozen is also an effort to double down on its commitment to sustainability. "We need to rethink frozen seafood if we're going to create a more delicious and sustainable global seafood system," says Niceland's Director of Sustainability, Patrick Dunaway. "Frozen seafood is a key to reducing both supply chain and post-consumer waste."

Next to waste reduction, another reason to consider frozen fish is the fact that there are more transportation options. "The logistical masters on our team get fresh fish to buyers using commercial routes to limit our carbon footprint," says Dunaway. "And with our new frozen line, we're able to use more carbon-efficient sea transport."

Each bag has a unique QR code that shows shoppers the story behind every fish for full traceability – just open a smartphone camera and point it at the images below.

The anticipated growth of the frozen seafood category points to greater consumer adoption and comfort level with frozen seafood. Modern freezing technology is partly responsible for this shift. "The freezer burn and large ice crystals we used to see don't occur with today's freezing technology, which means the proteins, fats, flavors and textures are preserved better," says Dunaway.

"This isn't your mom's frozen fish," says Meghan Russell, Niceland's VP of sales and marketing. "Our fish is flash frozen at the peak of freshness in Iceland, which means it's some of the highest-quality fish you can find."

Niceland Seafood's haddock fishery is MSC certified and adheres to the Iceland Responsible Fisheries management guidelines.
