Blas na hEireann Atlantis Seafoods

“We used innovative techniques to develop a gluten-free breaded crumb that would not only retain its shelflife but most importantly – its taste.”

Other projects in the Kilmore Quay range include seafood sausages (awarded an Irish Quality Food Award last year) and healthy fish products for children, all stocked in all major retailers.

“Atlantis Seafoods represents a forward thinking seafood enterprise that has successfully moved from wholesale to retail and has done so by diversifying and embracing innovative technology and support,” remarked Tara McCarthy, BIM chief executive.

“We’re looking forward to enabling Atlantic Seafoods to further drive their innovation agenda through our Seafood Development Centre in the months ahead.”

Atlantis Seafoods will benefit from €4,000 worth of services from the SDC in Clonakilty, Co. Cork. The centre is a purpose-built innovation centre with world-class technology facilities and a team of expert researchers, seafood technologists and business development personnel to assist the Irish seafood sector to drive innovative thinking and new product development.

Over the last two years, the centre has assisted 50 companies and more than 80 projects.
