Whole Foods Pressures Shrimp Market For Holidays

Whole Foods Hails "Shrimpsgiving" Arrival
Nov 12, 2008

Whole Foods Market is celebrating "Shrimpsgiving" at its seafood departments nationwide, featuring fully cooked and raw shrimp that the natural/organic grocer is billing as a great grab-and-go "value" for holiday meals. The chain is also featuring special prices on shrimp during the month of November, according to an article on Progressive Grocer, a supermarket insider magazine.

A larger array of shrimp will be on display in Whole Foods stores than in previous years, the grocer noted.

The Austin, Texas-based chain is offering wild and premium farm-raised shrimp, including already cooked, tail-on shrimp from Thailand; and raw, shell-on American-raised white shrimp (price varies by region, it said). It is also posting shrimp recipe ideas on their Website.
