In this pristine environment, far removed from industrial hazards, sea life thrives. And it is only here – in one of the world’s healthiest ocean habitats – that the premium Newfoundland Wild Lobster is found.

Craft

Producing a lobster this good takes genuine expertise. It starts with procuring the best of the day’s catch from local fishermen. Next, each lobster is individually examined for quality and placed in a state-of-the-art holding facility. Here, continuously circulating, filtered seawater provides the ideal environment. An intricate understanding of lobster biology – along with a respect and care for the species and its environment – are essential. Carefully controlled cold water temperatures, blood testing and continual monitoring assure optimized levels of salt and oxygen to guarantee the highest processing standards. The result is a strong, healthy, high protein lobster that truly surpasses all others in taste and quality.
