Turbot

With firm, delicate flesh, a subtle flavour of the sea, and low fat content, Label Rouge turbot exudes quality. 

Recognised for its nutritional value, its white flesh is rich in protein,  vitamins and minerals  - vitamin E, vitamin B12 and sources of vitamin PP, iodine and phosphorus - this fish provides significant Omega 3 fatty acids.

Freshness for the consumer

Closely monitored freshness. Less than 4 hours after slaughter, Label Rouge turbot is boxed and stored in the chill before going on sale. Its quality is guaranteed by a sell-by date (9 days for whole fresh turbot  7 days for cuts).

Label Rouge turbot quality: rigorous selection and a protected environment

Turbot thrives in the cool water of the Atlantic. Innovative farming practices are implemented on the Ile de Noirmoutier and in Brittany  ensuring high quality production  with a traditional character. The exceptional quality of the water and the environment make these  ideal locations for farming turbot.

In the beginning aquaculture was still new - we had to learn everything and keep on learning every day !

The search for perfection compels us to a constant challengeWe have therefore chosen to focus on quality rather than quantityThis is why we have chosen to engage in the process Label Rouge.

Some Spanish and Portuguese farms produce more than 1000 tons ofturbot a year. We produce a hundredThe superiority of our turbot Red Labelallows it to differentiate itself from mass productionThis proven quality ensures the sale of all of our products with the high-end restaurant

We work as a team. Label Rouge high standards mean constant effort throughout the year. But we reap the rewards when taste tests show consumers can't tell the difference between our Label Rouge turbot and a fresh caught turbot.
