LuLu Hypermarket is hosting the “Seafood Feast,” a week-long festival of seafood delights and exciting offers ahead of the festive season, at its Murabba district branch at Riyadh Avenue Mall. The in-store offers, which started on Dec. 12, are available until Tuesday.
The event was inaugurated by Director General of the General Department of Fisheries and CEO of the National Fisheries Development program in the Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture (MEWA) Ali Mohammed Al-Shaikhie.
LuLu is showcasing more than 100 varieties of fish and seafood, which have been imported from different countries, such as Norway, Uganda, India, Netherland and Turkey. Moreover, hard-to-find fish types such as rainbow trout, filefish, farmed turbot, crab, tilapia, farmed sea bream, and scad fish are also on offer. Besides the staple lineup of hamour, nagroor, naizer, red snapper and rabeeb fish, other seafood items available include prawns, oysters, clams and a range of fish products.
LuLu has been recognized as a ‘top seller’ of Samaq-certified products, such as fresh and cooked prawns, sea bream and tilapia. Samaq is Saudi Arabia’s national aquaculture product certification and labeling program developed by the Saudi Aquaculture Society under the guidance of the MEWA.
Apart from the seafood offerings in the wet section, LuLu is also selling fish dishes at the bakery and hot food stations. Fish sarciado, Amritsari fish, grilled prawns, fish tikka, prawn pizza, tuna puff and fish masala fry are the main attractions at these counters.
