ENCINO, CA – Known for their curated selection of high-quality products from around the world, Gelson’s is highlighting Del Pacifico’s wild-caught blue Mexican shrimp at all of their 27 locations with a special 25% off promotion from July 22nd to 24th.
Caught off the western coast of Mexico, Del Pacifico’s wild-caught blue Mexican shrimp are sustainable, chemical and preservative free and completely traceable. The shrimp are caught using artisanal panga boats that are powered by the winds and tide to drift a ‘suripera’ net, one of the best and most sustainable ways to catch shrimp. They are also processed, flash-frozen once and shipped the same day they are caught to ensure and preserve the freshness and premium quality of the shrimp.
By purchasing Del Pacifico shrimp you are also supporting the preservation of small-scale fishing operations and the communities in which they serve. The shrimp is fair-trade certified which means a premium from all purchases is returned directly to the fishers themselves. Currently, a portion of the premium must be spent on environmental conservation projects and the remainder can be spent as the fishermen and community see fit, anything from adding air conditioning to schools, to cleaning up plastics from the ocean water.
“Del Pacifico’s wild blue Mexican shrimp aligns perfectly with what type of seafood we want to offer our customers. It’s clean, sustainable, fair trade certified and delicious,” said Fernando Moreno, Meat and Seafood Buyer for Gelson’s. “It’s a great time for customers to take advantage of the special promo and discover how versatile this shrimp is. The sweet, succulent taste and crisp, snappy texture make them a great option for all types of occasions and recipes from shrimp cocktail and ceviche to pasta dishes or tossing them on the grill.”
Customers can find Del Pacifico wild blue Mexican shrimp at the seafood counter at all Gelson’s locations, as well as packaged in the frozen seafood section.
