High quality, once-frozen Genuine Alaska Pollock adds top quality protein, essential vitamins and menu variety to school meals. Fish may not be a staple on home menus so it’s usually more challenging to introduce students to quality fish options than it is to introduce chicken or pizza products on your menus.

Here are the three steps to a successful introduction of a new seafood item:

Get your staff on board: Introduce the new menu concept to your staff early. Prepare a sample and have them taste it. Explain why seafood is a healthy menu option. Ask them to encourage students to try the new seafood item and to talk it up on the lunch line.

Test your cooking times thoroughly: Prior to the introduction, test the cooking times for your seafood

items to ensure good outcomes. Alaska pollock product
are usually made with raw fish, so they will need to be cooked prior to serving. Every oven is different and testing prior to the introduction avoids testing on students.

Sample for Success! Get delicious once-frozen Genuine Alaska Pollock into students’ mouths before the entrée hits the serving line. Use a sampling program to share the upcoming menu choice with your students.
