Punta Arenas, Chile, March 17, 2017 (Newswire.com) – Nova Austral, noted salmon producer located in Region XII in Chile, the isolated Magellan and Antarctic Region, will previews its new brand of premium, sustainably farmed salmon – Sixty South – at the Seafood Expo in Boston this March and in Brussels in April.
The name ‘Sixty South’ pays homage to the farm’s waters of origin – sourced from pure, untouched, icy-cold waters from the Antarctic – to raise salmon without antibiotics or pesticides. It is the first Chilean salmon farmer to offer never treated, ASC-certified salmon year-round. The brand’s extreme south location provides sustainable conditions for raising salmon at the highest standards.
This unique origin creates superior quality and flavor for a salmon that is smooth, rich, and silky in texture.
Described by Nova Austral CEO, Nicos Nicolaides, “We are very excited to present a preview of Sixty South – our new brand of premium, sustainable salmon raised in Antarctic waters. In terms of a pristine and pure environment for farming salmon, the Antarctic waters are special. These are the southernmost operative farms in the world and offering continuous supply of never treated salmon, certified ASC. With Sixty South, we’re offering a whole new class of sustainable salmon raised on natures terms. It’s a product of exceptional quality that is responsibly raised without antibiotics or pesticides, to provide a distinct flavor and superior source of protein you can feel good about.”
Sixty South is part of the company’s ambitious program to supply salmon from ASC-certified sites year-round.
The company will be showcasing Sixty South for the first time at the Seafood Expo in Boston, Mass., March 19-21 2017. Stop by at Booth 2117 or contact the Nova Austral team to arrange an appointment.
