These crustaceans with extremely tender and delicious meat are sold under many names: Shrimp, prawns, gambas. They are a very popular and widespread delicacy that were previously only a delightful, exotic dish from far-away lands. Today, shrimp are an indispensable part of our plates. King prawns are especially large crustaceans. Black tiger shrimp are another special genus of giant shrimp, which are bred in Asia.

Shrimp are generally classified into marine, freshwater and brackish shrimps. While the former are self-explanatory, brackish shrimps live in marine estuaries where fresh and salt water mix. Most of our shrimp are freshwater shrimp. All shrimp are especially suited to grilling but can also be enjoyed in many other ways: boiled, roasted, caramelized, in a curry, in soups or plain – they're always a treat!

Did you know that shrimp have many ingredients that are vital to the human body, including fluorine, iodine, iron, calcium, magnesium and vitamin B12? Shrimp are also rich in protein and unsaturated fatty acids.

Our shrimp come from sustainable fisheries. So you can enjoy our superb shrimp with a clean conscience.
