Lewis Mills & Co., a leading seafood sourcing company announced it has achieved preferred vendor status from Nordic Halibut AS of Norway to market its farm raised whole fish in the U.S.

Nordic Halibut AS is a leading breeder and farmer of sustainable Norwegian Atlantic farmed halibut. Nordic Halibut oversees the entire life cycle of the halibut, from egg to marketable fish. The halibut is processed and packed for immediate delivery in Nordic Halibut’s facility, reaching the U.S. market in a matter of hours. As a result, the halibut’s shelf life is unprecedented compared to wild halibut that often spends days at sea before being delivered to market.

Norwegian Atlantic halibut has a firm white meat with a mild flavor. The halibut is a high protein source of Omega-3 fatty acids and fits the “center of the plate” profile for foodservice operators and retail supermarkets. Nordic Halibut offers consistent flavor, dependable delivery, and fixed pricing 12 months a year.

Founded in 2004, Lewis Mills & Co. is MSC Chain of Custody certified, ASC Chain of Custody certified and adheres to Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) as it strives to provide all its customers with high quality, sustainable, and traceable seafood.

“Nordic Halibut fits nicely into our mission to provide our customers with the very best farmed products available,” says Geoffrey Moulton, president and CEO of Lewis Mills & Co. “We can’t wait to start introducing this pristine fish to our customers across the United States.”
