From the Deep Sea to the Upper Echelon
Performance Foodservice is proud to bring to restaurants everywhere the best the seas have to offer with its prestigious Bay Winds® product line.
Attention to Detail
Bay Winds features all-natural, premium seafood sourced from prime, sustainable areas of the globe. Primarily wild-caught, each species that is selected for the elite Bay Winds brand must meet our strict standards, tight specifications, and be processed with the utmost craftsmanship. These standards ensure that stocks are healthy, and minimizes the impact to surrounding ecosystems by limiting by catch (the unwanted marine creatures caught while fishing for other species).
A Taste of What’s to Come From Bay Winds®
Throughout the rest of 2014 and into 2015 we will begin offering these and more quality seafood offerings.
Wild Caught Cold Water Lobster
Ocean fresh and flash frozen, wild-caught cold water lobster tails and cold water lobster meat are processed and packed exclusively for the Bay Winds brand, within a Fair Trade business climate in Prospect Harbor, Maine. The cold, clean water and rocky bottom of the Maine coast makes it one of the world’s most prime lobster habitats. The Bay Winds lobsters will be available in tails, claw, knuckle and leg meat.
Japanese Hokkaido Scallops
The coastline of Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost island, is a unique marine environment that feeds off the warm and cold Kuroshio and Oyashio currents, providing the perfect habitat for Bay Winds all-natural, wild-caught Japanese Hokkaido scallops. Renowned around the world, dry Hokkaido scallops are a true sashimi quality product with no chemicals added.
Bay Winds wild-caught Alaskan Halibut come fresh from the Aleutian Islands of Alaska in the Central Bering Sea. These meaty, white fish range in size up to 600 pounds, and are day-boat caught, processed, once-frozen, and packed entirely in Alaska. Alaskan Halibut is just one of the premium and native Alaskan species available in the Bay Winds portfolio, which will also include Pacific Cod; Sockeye, Coho and Chum Salmon; Red King Crab and Bairdi Snow Crab.
Chilean Sea Bass
The Patagonian Toothfish–more commonly known as the Chilean Sea Bass–is wild-caught in the deep, cold waters off the southern coast of South America and northern coast of Antarctica. An oil rich fish that doesn’t taste oily, Bay Winds Chilean Sea Bass is noted for its large, thick flake and melt-in-your-mouth texture. It is truly an exceptional eating fish. The international fleet currently harvesting and processing sea bass at sea is among the most high-tech in the world, ensuring consistent quality of frozen product.
