Meal Solution Specialists
Posted by Central Coast Seafood Merchanidising Team on May 23, 2012
When you go to the grocery store, are you heading there specifically to buy your fresh seafood? Usually the answer is, “no.” More often, consumers will venture to the local fish market for their seafood items. The perception is that the supermarket’s fish isn’t as fresh. On the contrary, the Albertsons stores from Paso Robles to Woodland Hills receive our fresh fish on a daily basis. In fact, many times the fish has been caught just the day before it’s displayed in the case. Now that’s fresh!
Seafood Business recently published an article about a United Kingdom retailer named Asda who aims to make seafood purchases easier for customers by helping them add flavors to go with their fish selection, and provide simple and quick ways to cook them. Well, you don’t have to go to the UK to find this simple concept. No, it’s right around the corner at your local Albertsons. They provide the fresh fish selections along with adding value to any item. For instance, they offer to season the fish for you, and there are some delicious flavors that compliment the seafood selection perfectly. In addition, they’ll skin any fillet and portion it for you, and in most cases, cook it for you too. Now that’s as simple as it gets!
Are you a seafood connoisseur? Tired of the same ol’ product offerings in the case? Well, just because it’s not in the case, doesn’t mean it’s not available to you. Retailers are accustomed to offering what sells, however Albertsons is a service oriented retailer and will special order any seafood item for you. Just ask the Albertsons’ Meal Solution Specialist and they’ll happily give us a call to deliver the product. Most likely it will be available the next day. There are a few exceptions to this rule, of course, and only because Albertsons has made a conscientious effort to not offer certain seafood items because of their poor sustainability rating (such as Orange Roughy and Shark at this time).
