Hand cut and containing no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, Fish Strips come in two flavours: Original or Lemon & Herb. A source of protein, they are a good way to enjoy more fish as part of meals.
Fish Strips distinctive bright yellow packaging will sit alongside fish fingers/cakes in the frozen food aisle of supermarkets where they retail at $7.69 for a 380g pack.
Launched by Simplot NZ Ltd. Birds Eye is a growing brand in New Zealand. It successfully entered the frozen grocery fish market in 2007 with Birds Eye Oven Bake Fish Fillets.
Simplot Business Manager Joyce Misa says, “We know that ‘work-life balance’ has changed for modern families and people don’t have the time to spend hours preparing meals. Some prefer to have a light snack, others need fillers for kids after sporting activities, and then there are others looking for appetising and handy options to serve at a barbeque when entertaining friends. With Birds Eye Fish Strips, we are providing convenient and more versatile options for people on the go.”
Ms Misa says that although the traditional large crumbed fish portions are still popular, consumers are becoming more and more sophisticated in terms of how they like to eat and this is reflected in the types of products that are evolving.
