Bluefin Freshmart for seafood lovers
In a landlocked country like Nepal, the easily digestible and highly nutritious seafood are quite limited to the products offered at the supermarkets or some of the hotels’ menu. However, an establishment going with the name of Bluefin Freshmart is a full-fledged seafood store in Nepal, which currently has three outlets (in Bhaisepati, Jhamsikhel and Baluwatar) and planning to expand it to five outlets within the Kathmandu valley.
Managed and operated under Energy Business House International Pvt. Ltd., Bluefin claims to work directly with the certified seafood farms and fisheries in Thailand. Catering about sixty-three varieties of seafood products, the store has an overwhelming range of fish that could leave anyone with less knowledge about fish confused. However, the number of trained staffs and salesperson are present to assist you throughout your shopping, from explaining about the type of fish to its nutritious values to cooking techniques. Moreover, various types of sauces and pastes available there will also assist you in cooking.
Bluefin also plans to open up a fish farm in the country itself, in areas like Chitwan, so that the freshness of the products will be preserved even more and also the prices will be less. They not only want to be limited to the seafood importers in the country, as they are at present, but aims to be the seafood exporters by 2015.
