DALLAS, TX — NaturalShrimp, Inc. announced today that Douwe Iedema of Livingston, Texas, has been named the Company’s Corporate Chef as an integral part of its expanding marketing program.
Mr. Iedema is a seasoned Executive Chef, with more than twenty years of demonstrated success planning and directing the operations of large restaurants and events, driving top class performance metrics and revenue growth, while enhancing productivity and profitability. He is known as a leader and problem solver, with recognized ability to deliver the highest standards of quality and operational excellence.
Mr. Iedema trained as a Culinary Chef in the Netherlands and received his Master of Arts, Classic French Cuisine, at the Karl Van Erven Private School also in the Netherlands.
NaturalShrimp’s new Corporate Chef served as an Executive Chef in his native country for six years, overseeing multiple food outlets for more than 8,000 military personnel from twenty-eight delegations assigned to NATO’s Northern Headquarters, Europe. He has since served as Executive Chef at restaurants in Livingston, Texas, Dallas, Texas and Shreveport, Louisiana.
“I am honored to be the Corporate Executive Chef for NaturalShrimp. No shrimp can be compared with ours. The word natural says it all. Our shrimp are sweet, buttery and clean. This is the way shrimp should taste. All white Pacific shrimp have a sweetness to them – ours a little more,” said Mr. Iedema.
“I will be developing relationships with chefs, creating menus and recipes branding our amazing product. Not only the chefs but I believe our market is much larger than that, including wholesalers that need sustainable products. We will be marketing NaturalShrimp at Food Shows and other major events where clean, fresh, never frozen shrimp will fit.”
“My goal is to make NaturalShrimp the first thought that comes to mind when people say the word shrimp.”
NaturalShrimp is an Aquaculture Company, providing fully mature, all-natural, antibiotic and hormone-free Pacific white shrimp. Farm-raised shrimp, which are raised in outside ponds and require the heavy use of antibiotics, are typically immature white shrimp and smaller in size.
Over-harvesting of shrimp in the oceans and the generally poor quality of imported farm grown shrimp, creates a high demand for domestically sourced, antibiotic-free products. Shrimp is the most popular seafood in global demand and NaturalShrimp is in the process of positioning itself to help facilitate this demand.
NATURAL SHRIMP, INC. is a publicly traded Aquaculture Company, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, with production facilities located near San Antonio, Texas. The Company has developed the first commercially viable system for growing shrimp in enclosed, salt water systems, using patented technology to produce fresh, never frozen, naturally grown shrimp without the use of antibiotics or toxic chemicals. NaturalShrimp systems can be located anywhere in the world to produce gourmet-grade Pacific white shrimp.
