D’Artagnan, the trusted expert in sustainable proteins and the purveyor of choice to top chefs across the nation for the last 35+ years, has taken a dive into the waters of sustainable seafood. This expansion is in direct response to consumer’s growing culinary sophistication and interest in responsibly sourced proteins being conveniently delivered to their homes.
“During the early months of the pandemic we partnered with a local fish purveyor to both support their business and provide our customers the convenience of home delivery on a range of grocery items. Seafood was so popular we wanted to make it a permanent addition to our offerings, specifically for our website customers,” said Andy Wertheim, President of D’Artagnan.
D’Artagnan is committed to working with conscientious farmers, ranchers and fishers who respect the environment and the ecosystems that support animal life, on the earth and the seas. That’s why all D’Artagnan seafood is certified sustainable, fair trade, or organic by gold-standard international watch groups.
“Because of our name and reputation, we were able to partner with outstanding sources for our fish,” said Ariane Daguin, CEO and Founder of D’Artagnan. “We are proud of the choices we now offer – from jumbo scallops and sockeye salmon to organic shrimp and Chilean sea bass. And now you can get surf and turf ingredients together at dartagnan.com.”
“Fish is a great choice for summer cooking – it is always a fast and delicious meal. With the rise of keto and emphasis on gluten-free eating, fish fits so many dietary needs today,” said Daguin.
