Echo Falls Smoked Sockeye Salmon Nuggets Selected as a Finalist in the 2024 Seafood Excellence Awards

Monroe, WA March 1, 2024 – The new Echo Falls Smoked Sockeye Salmon Nuggets have been selected as a finalist in the Best New Retail Product category for the 2024 Seafood Excellence Awards. Packed under the nation’s leading premium retail smoked seafood brand, Echo Falls, this product takes sockeye salmon from the pristine waters of Bristol Bay and cures it with honey before smoking over applewood. The result is a succulent bite-sized nugget that is perfect for parties or snacking on the go.

Winners of the competition will be announced on March 10, 2024, at 3:00pm EST in the new Wave Makers’ Zone at (SENA) Seafood Expo North America/Seafood Processing North America, at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, USA. The Seafood Excellence Awards recognizes product leaders in the North American seafood market. Finalists are evaluated by three seafood industry experts based on the product’s uniqueness and appropriateness to the market, taste profile, packaging, market potential, convenience, nutritional value, and originality.

The Echo Falls Smoked Salmon Sockeye Nuggets will be on display in the New Product Showcase in the Wave Makers’ Zone (booth #3165) during the three-day event. For more information about the product, please visit SENA’s 2024 New Product Showcase page.
