From Tuna Farm to Table, PFH Is in the Loop

When Bluefina USA promises to deliver its high-demand Pacific Bluefin Tuna to the world’s best chefs, they can do so with total confidence. That’s because Prime Fresh Handling is in the loop.

Freshly harvested off the idyllic coast of Ensenada, Mexico, PFH at Los Angeles International Airport recently received hundreds of pounds of prized Bluefin Tuna destined for New York’s Fulton Market and high-end restaurants in Miami.

The company’s certified handlers take their responsibility for monitoring freshness and safety very seriously. Upon arrival at PFH’s refrigerated warehouse facility at LAX, the crew quickly stepped in. The temperature of the packed fresh fish needed to be stabilized in a hurry before making outbound connections on scheduled air carriers.

The crates of precious cargo were immediate ushered into one of PFH’s top-of-the-line coolers. Proper staging of these oceanic superfish for the next phase of their journey entailed stabilizing temperatures between 36-38 degrees. If temperatures were to rise above this threshold, the shelf life and quality of the fish would be significantly compromised.

This specialized but necessary step took extra time. The customer was advised. New connecting flights were booked. Promises were kept.

With real-time technology, top-grade facilities, and the most experienced professionals in the perishables business – Bluefina USA not only knows fish, but also knows Prime Fresh Handling is a good catch.
