The 10 lbs Food Service Case contains individually vacuum packed "TiLoveYa™" tilapia fillets. The fillets are presented in our branded "TiLoveYa™" vacuum pack to ensure customers the finest product available from HQ. Quality and customer satisfaction is always #1 with HQ and our private label "TiLoveYa™" ensures quality from pond to plate. This particular product caters to all segments of the foodservice marketplace including fine and casual dining, fast food chains, institutional cafeteria programs, as well as "grab-and-go" sections in retail cases.

These new HQ products have been selected for the Boston Seafood new product competition, which will take place during the annual Boston Seafood show March 11 - 13, 2007 - Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, MA, USA (See http://www.bostonseafood.com/07/public/MainHall.aspx?sortMenu=101000).
