Grading availability varies depending on the stage of the season. The three largest grades (U6 to 8/10) account for about 70% of our yearly landings.
Although our peak season is usually from March to August, we supply quality prawn all year round.
PREMIUM QUALITY PRAWNS
We aim to provide our buyers with the highest possible quality product. Quality assurance standards are maintained through an Approved Arrangement (AA) required by federal authorities to retain an export licence. This involves regular testing under a variety of categories to ensure quality and safety.
Our accountability assurance allows that every 5kg carton can be traced back to it’s vessel, crew member and date. Our prawns are free of all antibiotics. The only additive used is the approved preservative Sodium Metabisulphite (223) into which the prawns are dipped to benefit buyers with a longer shelf life once thawed.
