Hitramat added vinegar to dressed crab shells sold at Rema 1000 to extend their shelf life. The store chain was not informed of the move. The manufacturer is now apologizing.
“Hitramat has a major focus on the durability of our products, not least to reduce food waste. We, therefore, added a vinegar mixture to dressed crab shells produced for Rema 1000 to increase the shelf life from eight to twelve days,” CEO of Hitramat, Anton Fjeldvær, told the newspaper Nettavisen.
He apologized to both Rema 1000 and customers who have received a different product than they expected.
They are now working on preparing new dressed crab shells for Rema 1000, which has sent back the crabs with vinegar.
“The manufacturer should inform us as a customer, but now they are cleaning up, and we look forward to getting new dressed crab shells in the store soon,” Torkel Fjørtoft, press officer at Rema 1000, stated.
