World’s largest sole farmer plans “big” launch in Brussels
Spanish aquaculture company Stolt Sea Farm, which is owned by the Stolt-Nielsen Group, has achieved the “largest sole” via its Prodemar brand, the company announced on 19 April.
The company capitalizes on its placement in the unique waters of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as on a new breeding technique that offers “a more ecological sole with a better yield,” it said. With a capacity of 850 metric tons (MT) – which is distributed between its three farms in Spain, France and Iceland – Stolt Sea Farm is the world’s largest sole producer; it’s also a world leader in farmed turbot production, with a capacity of 5,400 MT. White sturgeon caviar is also a specialty for the company, with an annual production of 10 MT.
During the Seafood Expo Global / Seafood Processing Global event taking place in Brussels, Belgium from 25 to 27 April, Stolt Sea Farm plans to launch its King Sole product, which is certified by Friend of the Sea and GlobalG.A.P., for the European market. King sole, which weighs more than 500 grams, measures between 30 and 50 centimeters, a larger size that “saves time and money and provides greater versatility in preparation,” said the company.
The launch will take place on Tuesday, 25 April at Stolt Sea Farm’s booth (No. 6-1363). A tasting will accompany the launch.
