Sao Paulo, April 16, 2018 – The Do Chef Friboi brand, well-known for its range of special products for the many needs of its highly demanding customers, has expanded its business and launched a full portfolio of frozen fish products for the retail and food service sectors. As a result, the brand expects to increase sales by 25%.
The products that have been selected are some of the most sought-after in the world such as legitimate Portuguese cod, wild Alaskan fish and a variety of Uruguayan and Chilean fish. The fish portfolio offers a range of products, such as Alaskan pollock, dogfish, cod, Chilean and Alaskan salmon, hake, tilapia and catfish. All items are available frozen, in 800 gram and 1 kg packs, from certified producers, to guarantee food safety and quality.
“We want to offer out customer accessible fish options and break down the myth that fish is only eaten on special or commemorative dates. Our idea is to offer a range of high quality products for Brazilian consumers’ everyday needs”, said Ailton Firmino, executive director of Sales at JBS Carnes.
Initially, the new Do Chef Friboi range will be available from major Brazilian retailers, wholesalers and wholetailers. List prices vary from R$ 15 to R$ 60.
Apart from fish, the Do Chef Friboi ranges includes another three product ranges: beef, lamb and vegetable products. The beef range includes cuts such as sirloin, rib eye, cupim, tenderloin, skirt, rump, top sirloin, short ribs, short rack ribs, long rack ribs, rack ribs, master rack of ribs, strip ribs, belly ribs, rib eye end and sliced cupim. The lamb range includes sirloin, brisket, neck, ribs, leg, rack of lamb, short rack and t-bone rack. The Chef Friboi Vegetables brand offers a full range including potatoes, cassava, polenta, broccoli, cauliflower, peas and a selection of legumes.
