UAE Caviar, Sturgeon Products Heading to the US Market17 June 2014
UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - Emirates AquaTech, the world’s largest indoor sustainable aqua-farming company, has received clearance and approval to export the UAE’s first-class Siberian YASA Caviar and sturgeon products to the Unites States of America from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Emirates AquaTech’s 56,000 square metre state-of-the-art, and full-cycle farm, produces the finest Siberian caviar and sturgeon meat to the highest international standards. Since its official launch in 2011, the company has been focused on safe, environmentally sustainable breeding and nurturing of the rare and endangered wild sturgeon species. YASA Caviar, produced by Emirates AquaTech, is the UAE and region’s first and only caviar and sturgeon brand.
Abu Dhabi is not usually synonymous with caviar production, but Emirates AquaTech has taken the first and important step of changing that. YASA Caviar is a true delicacy that satisfies all food connoisseurs and sea-food lovers. YASA Caviar is made in Abu Dhabi and the aim is to carry this flag proudly to the world.
Ahmed Mohammed Al Dhaheri, Managing Director of Emirates AquaTech, said: “We are delighted to have received FDA clearance to export our Premium sturgeon products to the US. This is most certainly testament to the quality and safety of our locally farmed products, and presents us with a significant opportunity to grow our business in one of the world’s largest markets.”
“Connoisseurs across the US will now be able to purchase our high quality products—whether it is fresh and pressed caviar, or fresh and frozen sturgeon fillets and hot and cold smoked sturgeon fillets along with a selection of seasoning products, we are confident our customers will recognize and appreciate the unique taste, high quality and incredible value of all our YASA line. FDA approval is yet another positive step in our journey in showcasing Emirates AquaTech’s—and the UAE’s—world-class, sophisticated products to the world,” Mr Al Dhaheri added.
Emirates AquaTech has received and maintains five internationally recognized certifications: ISO 22000 (Food Safety Management System), HACCP (Hazards and Critical Control Points), ISO 9001 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System), and OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System).
