Description : The shrimp is a crustacean of which there are thousands of species, farmed or wild, and which can live in both warm and cold water. At Nepco we import our shrimp directly from India under our private label Madras. It is a white shrimp farmed in the warm water of the Indian Ocean as well as that of its neighboring countries such as Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia. On each of our arrivals, a qualitative inspection of several points is carried out to ensure that the size, weight and quality are met. Many ask us about the black tiger shrimp which were so popular before and whose availability has plummeted. The black tiger shrimp unfortunately suffered mass mortalities in Asia following the detection of several viruses and farmers were never able to regain mass productivity afterwards. Fortunately, the white shrimp is just as delicious!

Shrimps contain several nutritional qualities. It is high in protein and low in calories. It also contains amino acids, phosphorus and magnesium. It is also an excellent source of omega 3 which contributes to cardiovascular health.
