American seafood company King and Prince Seafood has won a Spirit of Innovation award for the third straight year, according to a release from the company.
The award, in the excellence in innovation food service category, recognized King and Prince for its bacon-wrapped jalapeno cream cheese-stuffed shrimp, beating out 275 entries.
“We are very proud of our bacon-wrapped shrimp and pleased the industry continues to recognize our efforts to provide operators with innovative seafood solutions and high quality products,” said Sue Gurkin, Director of Innovation.
The awards, co-sponsored by Prepared Foods and Ventura Foods, recognize companies’ efforts to create innovative new products. In 2012, King and Prince received an award for the company’s Sushi Bob product, and in 2011 the company’s Fish Market Fresh product also earned high marks.
