Festival Foods first retailer in nation to carry Atlantic salmon raised on US soil
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WKBT) — Festival Goods is the first retailer in the nation to carry commercially grown Atlantic salmon raised on U.S. soil.
According to a news release, the fish are produced in Wisconsin by Superior Fresh, a aquaponics facility.
Superior Fresh never uses antibiotics or pesticides, and the fish contain zero contaminants or pollutants. In addition, the fish are fed an organic diet.
Festival Foods began selling a leafy green from Superior Fresh shortly after the facility opened in 2017.
The salmon is now available at all 31 Festival Foods locations.
“Partnering with Superior Fresh is a win for Festival Foods and for our guests,” said Mark Skogen, Festival Foods’ president and CEO. “We are committed to supporting local growers and food producers, and this company is among the best, especially regarding their commitment to quality.”
