Have you ever wondered the so-called fresh raw seafood available in the market, is it really fresh and healthy? The answer is a surprising No, that too the fishes are at least 5 to 7 days old.
The conventional fish trading system includes the fishermen, the middlemen, and the end consumers. Fishermen trade off their fishes and meat to the traders, who in turn sell them to customers in the market. The transportation mechanism used by the traders by which the livestock is brought to the market is chemicalized and unhealthy but cheap and the stocks are visibly fresh, which actually are not. Freshtohome has stepped up to eliminate the woos of the fishermen, by providing better rates and end consumers by providing them stock which is really fresh and free from chemicals.
