Bristol Seafood's My Fish Dish Spicy Ginger Butter ShrimpBristol Seafood

Portland, Maine, U.S.A.-based supplier Bristol Seafood transitioned “a significant portion of its wholesale packaging to reusable containers” in August 2022, with help from its partners Hannaford and Tosca.

“Sustainability is a foundational part of Bristol. Our transition away from polystyrene began ten years ago, starting with waxed corrugate, then to recyclable cardboard, and today with reusable packaging,” Bristol Seafood Vice President of Sales and Marketing Iréne Moon said. “As we continue to focus on minimizing our environmental footprint while we grow our business, we see reusable packaging as the next logical step. We are grateful for Hannaford’s ongoing enthusiasm and partnership in our sustainability initiatives and for Tosca’s work to support this supply chain.”

Hannaford Category Manager Nathan Jewell said the retailer sources and sells “only sustainably raised, fished, and harvested seafood, and all our seafood comes with a double money-back quality guarantee.”

“We’re proud to work with Bristol and Tosca to bring reusable packaging and shipping totes to the seafood we provide in our fresh service cases, and this work will help us to enhance the sustainability of our seafood program,” Jewell said.

In addition to its new packing protocol, Bristol has also expanded its My Fish Dish range with My Fish Dish Spicy Ginger Butter Shrimp. The ready-to-cook meal is brimming with “sophisticated flavor,” the company said, and features Peruvian white all-natural sustainable shrimp with a togarashi seasoning and ginger garlic butter. It is skin-packed on a black tray, and contains no antibiotics and no additives in the shrimp, Bristol said. The offering comes in a slack and sell format with five days of shelf-life.
