Brooklyn, NY and Miami, FL – US land-based salmon farmer Atlantic Sapphire, the world’s largest producer of land-based salmon, and Brooklyn-based Acme Smoked Fish, the largest smoked seafood producer in the United States, announced an exclusivity agreement for the production, packaging and distribution of smoked Atlantic Sapphire’s US Bluehouse Salmon in the United States.
The agreement includes an initial launch of two varieties of smoked salmon, hot smoked and cold smoked, under the recently-launched Bluehouse Salmon brand.
Atlantic Sapphire’s land-based salmon brings innovation and sustainable science together in one product. Bluehouse Salmon is a fresh and healthy choice that is raised with no antibiotics or hormones, is free from ocean microplastics, and is high in Omega-3s.
Cold Smoked Bluehouse Salmon (3 oz package) and Smoke Roasted Maple Salmon (4oz package) will be available at major retailers in the U.S. in the near future. The Cold Smoked variety will also be available in a food service size.
“We are proud to launch our all-American Bluehouse Salmon smoked line together with Acme,” says Johan Andreassen, CEO of Atlantic Sapphire USA. “The combination of Acme’s unmatched reach within the US smoked salmon market and the unique product attributes of Bluehouse Salmon will bring a fantastic smoked salmon option to the US consumer.”
“We are equally excited to help bring this delicious and innovative American-raised smoked salmon product to market,” says Adam Caslow, co-CEO of Acme Smoked Fish and a member of the family’s fourth generation. “It is more important than ever to provide a variety of sustainably-raised fish choices to our customers, and we are looking forward to introducing customers to our uniquely smoked varieties of Bluehouse Salmon very soon.”
