The best of both worlds
SEA-GROWN, YET FARMED
Our scallops obtain their nutrients naturally from the sea, yet their presence and harvest do not affect the marine habitats.
We grow our scallops without the use of neither hormones nor chemicals.
NO ADDITIVES, 100% DRY
We never add chemicals to enlarge our scallops.
FREE OF ANTI-FOULANTS
We do not use any anti-foulant substance to clean our nets and lanterns. All is cleaned with pressured water.
We conduct bi-monthly waters and flesh tests to prevent contamination of our scallops (red tides among others), and to check for metals.
HIGHEST QUALITY AND PROCESSING STANDARDS
Most of our production is exported to the European market.
Samanco Lantern Scallops: superb flavor, environmentally friendly, and sustainable
We offer ultra-premium quality, sea-cultured scallops of the species Argopecten Purpuratus, directly from Peru.
Our scallop sea-farm is located in what is considered to be the cleanest and most nutrient-rich waters of the Pacific Ocean. Leveraging unsurpassed local environmental advantages in combination with Japanese farming technologies, our scallops have quickly earned global recognition in the highly regulated European community.
A delicious flavor, and unique naturally occurring milky juices released while cooking
Our scallops are highly sought after by French chefs and consumers, for whom flavor and texture is much more important than mere scallop size.
Everyone who has tried our Samanco Lantern Scallops can attest to the difference in quality, flavor, and freshness, compared to other scallops. When seared, our scallops release a milky substance that is flavorful and that adds a touch to the dish.
Environmentally conscious sea-culture technique
We leave the bottom of the sea completely undisturbed, and we do not deplete marine resources in order to obtain our scallops.
All scallops are farmed in Japanese lanterns or suspended cages in the ocean, obtaining all nutrients needed naturally by the scallops from what these blessed ocean waters provide. This process allows a continued supply of ultra-premium quality scallops all year rounds, and without harming the sea bed or the marine habitat of several species.

It also allows for programming of production towards a specific size, according to our customers needs.
