[TUNGLOK YUSHENG GIVEAWAY] Fresh and Safe Salmon from Norway

Do you know that salmon, a saltwater fish raised in cold, pristine waters of Norway, is safe to be eaten RAW?

With the recent ban on the consumption of raw freshwater fish in Singapore, some consumers might choose to stay away from the traditional Chinese New Year Lo Hei, which usually features salmon-the symbol of abundance. However, the fact is that Norwegian Salmon from retailers and food outlets that uphold high quality standards in preparation and cleanliness, is perfectly safe to be eaten raw.

Why is this so?

1) Regulated Checks: 
  • Numerous inspections and analysis are conducted by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority and the National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research (NIFES) each year. 
  • Since 2003, an extensive monitoring program has been carried out by NIFES in accordance with European Union legislation (Directive 96/23/EC), which requires national authorities to monitor the presence of undesirable substances in raw materials and food derived from animals.
2) Hygienic Transportation Practices: 
  • Norwegian Salmon is transported in correct temperatures and stored in boxes that have been specially designed to keep the product cold all the way to its destinations, one of which is Singapore. 
  • In fact, more than 90% of the fresh salmon available in Singapore is imported from Norway and flown in within 48 hours from harvest. Hence, freshness and food safety is always preserved.

Your Fish Origins Matters
Thanks to a long coastline of fjords surrounded by cold Arctic waters that consist of the right currents and temperatures, Norway is the ideal nation for farming salmon.

Producing more than 65% of the world’s Atlantic salmon that is raised in pristine, cold, clear waters, Norway is responsible for serving up more than 14 million Norwegian Salmon meals everyday worldwide.

Norwegian fish farms adhere to regulations that imposes the world’s strictest control systems and advanced environmental measures to ensure responsible fish farming is practiced.
