Royal Greenland's latest addition to its range are Greenlandic coldwater prawns which are packaged in brine made with less salt (1.4 per cent compared to the industry standard of 2.6 per cent). The prawns are grown slowly in the cold waters off Greenland and are caught by smaller, inshore vessels before being delivered to the MSC certified inshore prawn fishery in West Greenland. They are available in 900g (drained weight) re-sealable tubs and are ready to eat after draining.
The brine's reduced salt recipe means the prawns are not only healthier, but have a milder, sweeter taste than those in a stronger brine, says Royal Greenland.

Why you should buy it:
Royal Greenland chief executive Mikael Thinghuus said the industry had needed to innovate and 'move with the times' to change the 'misguided perceptions' of cold water prawns, compared to their warm water counterparts.
"By creating this new luxury, healthier product we are leading the industry, creating interest and providing foodservice operators with a convenient product to work with," he said.
