3 Things to Look for in a Crab Stick Supplier in Singapore
Positioning your seafood business for success depends on several factors—food quality, customer service, store ambience, and reliable suppliers. Yes, your fish, shrimp, squid, and crab stick supplier is part of the equation, so be sure to choose a reliable one.
Compared to other seafood, crab flavoured sticks (also known as “crab sticks”) are harder to find. You can’t always buy them in the marketplace when your krabs inventory runs out. The reason being is that crab sticks are processed fish meat, not freshly caught from the sea. They are only edible imitations, hence the term imitation crab.
Before we look at the considerations when selecting a crab stick supplier in Singapore, let us first take a closer look at imitation crab, its benefits, and how it is made.
