BEST OCTOPUS SOURCES
Discefa (Ditusa) buys directly from the world’s greatest fishing grounds, the octopus it uses as raw material meets a Unique Quality Standard in Europe by means of which our Quality Experts select and classify each octopus with the same procedure as Japan, the world leaders in Top Quality Seafood.
The competitiveness and high specialization of our facilities allow us to distribute thousands of tons of octopus per year from Morocco, Mexico, Chile or Peru, operating directly in the main fishing grounds to obtain a first-class product. Thus, we offer alternatives such as the Octopus of Dakhla (vulgaris), Moroccan Octopus variant considered as the most reputed in the world.
We sell octopus from the best fishing grounds in the world.
The Moroccan octopus stands out for its excellent quality, which is determined by feeding on clams and crustaceans. Our Dakhla octopus, fished and frozen daily with artisanal techniques, is the Moroccan octopus variant with the most prestige in the world. Therefore, it is the Dakhla octopus that we use to produce our renowned Cooked Octopus products, with unique texture and flavor.
Always caught with traditional fishing gear, totally sustainable, the octopus produced in this area is of high quality, which, together with our selection process and immediate freezing, makes it an excellent raw material, highly appreciated in Mediterranean countries and the United States, with which we produce DISCEFA’s (Ditusa) Tenderized Common Octopus, a benchmark and leading product in the sector.
