All about Rosso di Mazara Prawns.
Mazara prawns are a type of freshwater prawn that are native to the Mediterranean region.
The name Rosso (red) is due to their vivid red natural color.
They are known for their sweet, delicate and firm texture .
Where are they fished ?
Mazara shrimps are caught 600m depth and immediately frozen onboard. The process is triggered by thermal shock at -50C inside the freezing tunnels. This treatment is key to preserve their nutritional properties , texture and taste.

More about Rosso di Mazara -The only prawn sulfites free
The indiscriminate use of sulfites on red prawn to prevent melanosis or black spot, can cause unwanted allergic reactions and develop an unpleasant and irritating odor. The total absence of sulfites on red prawn caught by us is certified by the independent laboratory EPTA NORD, which constantly monitors all our production. Numerous sensory tests confirm to us that without sulfites the red prawn maintains intact the organoleptic properties , color , flavor and texture of the flesh
FRIEND OF THE SEA
Friend of the Sea is an international nonprofit association with the mission of certifying products from sustainable fisheries.
The Friend of the Sea logo found on our packaging guarantees that red prawn was caught in nets that do not harm the marine habitat.
Buying seafood with the Friend of the Sea logo means protecting the sea and ensuring a greater supply of fish for future generations.
Reducing sea turtle mortality has always been one of our goals.
A strong inclination to experiment with new technologies applied to fishing allows us to use the TED “Turtle Excluder Device” system by which we prevent them from entering the net bag.
We support the TARTALIFE project and share all its initiatives aimed at the conservation of the sea turtle “Caretta Caretta” in the Mediterranean Sea.
Plastic pollution has become an environmental issue that needs to be addressed with extreme urgency.
Every year about 8 mln tons of plastic end up in the sea and over 50 ml tons in the Mediterranean Sea alone. At least 140 marine species are estimated to suffocate because they are entangled in plastic waste of all kinds. In the absence of drastic decisions, it is predicted that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish.
For Rosso di Mazara Sustainable packaging has always been a strategic element of our brand identity.
The entire packaging conception and design process is inspired by new eco-design methodologies, which has enabled us to achieve packaging made of paper and cardboard from renewable sources and totally eliminate plastic and other environmentally harmful materials.
Today The packages Rosso di Mazara are the result of a relentless search for technological solutions capable of maintaining the high quality of the product without sacrificing originality and elegance.
