Description

Litopanaeus Vannamei or King Prawns is a specie of warm water prawns native to the coastal area of tropical South America. Ecuador was one of the first countries in the world to start farming Vannamei, but lately, countries like Vietnam, Thailand, China, and the Philippines have taken over the majority of the market. Prawns are highly sensitive to stress, and being overcrowded in farms has a negative impact on the quality. Ecuador is the ideal country for Vannamei farming, as they have the longest experience and best farming and processing procedures in place. A combination of the weather, feed and processes results in the most premium quality in the market. Ecuador has a great focus on sustainable and responsible farming with strict regulations on environmental footprint.

Yummi Happy Prawns is our most premium brand with impeccable quality. The prawns that get packaged under Yummi Happy Prawns have been selected by Wharf and careful quality control measures have been conducted by our quality control managers in Ecuador. We only buy from sustainable farmers who have proper environmental awareness and low-density production. By focusing on freezing the prawns shortly after they have been fished, we can promise you a fresh product with a great taste, colour and texture.

Size and Count 60/70 (Mean Average)

The count is on average 65, which means that in one kilo you will get an average of 65 prawns, in the 2kg box there will be an average of 130 prawns.

 

Sourcing

We source the product ourselves directly with farmers in Ecuador. Wharf has through 5 years in the business built up a large network of farmers and exporters. We are primarily looking for quality, so we focus on farmers with the ability to produce the best quality in the market.

Processing and Freezing

The prawns have been frozen and processed by our processing partners in Ecuador. We select our partners based on the quality and efficiency of the processes, their machinery and their reputation. We only work with serious processing plants with experience in exporting to European markets. We make sure the products gets processed and frozen shortly after they have been fished, which results in a more fresh product.

Additives: Sodium Metabisulphite (E-223)

This product has been treated with Sodium Metabisulphite (E-223) which prevents the prawns from going black. Without (E-223) Vannamei prawns have a defrosted shelf life of only a few hours, E-223 is essential to maintain the quality of the product. We follow EU and UK regulations on additives and all of our products have to pass through a health test in both Ecuadorian Exports and UK customs.
