Fresh Innovation

The CAS Fresh preservation method was invented by Norio Owada and represents a global breakthrough that is revolutionising seafood preservation.

Using the combined effects of extreme cold and a magnetic field comparable to that of the North Pole, the flavours, smells and textures of the fish are kept intact

Seabass preserved using the Cas Fresh preservation method was selected by Produits de la Mer magazine and the Centre Culinaire Contemporain in Rennes as the Favourite Seafood Innovation at the Assises de la pêche et des produits de la mer convention in France.

Waterfront replaces Dubai Fish Market

After almost 60 years of existence, the iconic Deira Fish Market closed its doors last month. The good news is that it’s been replaced by the brand new Waterfront Market near Hamriya Port.

The state-of-the-art facility, located on Al Khaleej Road, is spread over more than 100,000 square metres, and sells fresh fish, fruit, vegetables and meat (find a map locating the market’s exact spot here).

The market will also eventually be home to restaurants, cafés, shops and a hypermarket. The Waterfront market is expected to serve as many as 500,000 visitors a month and is said to be a neater, cleaner food environment, with air-conditioning, odour control, covered parking facilities and stricter hygiene regulations.
