Saltfish Brands

Superb quality, consistency and flavor — our four brands of salted fish have become the Gold Standard among connoisseurs.

 

In 1971, CFE began producing salted fish under the Cristobal® brand using a technique known as kenching or dry-salting — a preservation technique dating back to the late 1600s in New England. By adhering to this age-old tradition, we have grown to become the leading distributor of salted Cod and Pollock in the US.

Today, we offer four distinctive brands in both fillets and chunks, with a variety of convenient package sizes available. Known for their superb consistency, flavor and quality, our offerings are among the world’s most popular brands of salted fish, meeting the discriminating tastes of connoisseurs throughout the United States and Caribbean Islands.

The local name for salted fish may differ, but many countries that share a coast with the Atlantic Ocean have a long culinary connection with salt cod.

Salted Cod and Pollock

— A Living Tradition —

With its rich New England legacy, Cristobal Salted Cod is our original brand of salted fish. Deliciously firm with large white flakes, it holds up well during cooking and retains its unique salt flavor.

Considered the “real deal,” Cristobal Salted Cod is highly popular among traditional consumers of salted fish, with old-world recipes passed from one generation to the next. Wild-caught — never farm-raised, Cristobal is often found at the holiday dinner table during Easter, Lent, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Cristobal brand is available in the following sizes:

• Cristobal Salted Cod: 1 lb. wooden box; 1- and 2-lb. bags; in fillets or chunks.

• Cristobal Salted Pollock: 1 lb. bag of fillets or chunks.
