24 May 2013

SCOTLAND, UK - A mussel ready-meal dish produced by the Scottish Shellfish Marketing Group (SSMG) has been selected as a finalist in this year’s SuperMeat & Fish Awards.

Scottish Mussels with a Lime, Chilli and Coriander Butter Sauce produced by SSMG for Tesco is on the short-list for a SuperMeat & Fish Award in the Best Fish or Seafood Product category.

The organisers say these awards are the largest of their kind in the sector, with up to 500 industry professionals attending each year. The awards recognise both individual retail outlets, and assess, review and reward new and existing products in the sector.

Scottish Mussels with a Lime, Chilli and Coriander Butter Sauce features natural ‘store cupboard’ ingredients and is attractively presented in a 500g cardboard pack.

Rob Mitchell, Commercial Director for SSMG, said: “We are delighted that this innovative and tasty mussel recipe dish has been selected as a finalist in the SuperMeat & Fish Awards. Our Scottish rope-grown mussels are incredibly versatile in the ready meal sector, particularly since they are so quick and easy to cook.”

The SuperMeat & Fish Awards will be held in Thursday 4 July 2013 at the Hilton Hotel, Park Lane, London.
