Salmon Update


Our Irish Organic Salmon program is having great beginning success.  Comments from our customers include: "This stuff is beautiful!" "I've never seen an organic product with such rich, deep color."  "My customers are wild for this product.  When can I get more?" "Let me double my order for next week."

Along with repeat purchases from our satisfied customers, we are also pleased to announce that we are now in a position to offer 10-12 lb whole salmon as well as the 6-8 and 8-10's.  Our customers looking for larger sizes are very pleased about this. Read more

Food Marketing Institute Traceability Working Group


CRAIG APPLEYARDCraig Appleyard, our VP of Operations & Business Development, was invited to be on the Food Marketing Institute's (FMI) working group for Traceability.  His role, as a supplier, will be to help recognize challenges associated with identifying key points within the supply chain and offer ideas on how to overcome said challenges.  Craig will also help educate the group on current traceability initiatives.  The bottom line? Finding solutions to tracing products from the source to the table. 


We are pleased that Craig is participating in this working group.  FMI represents one of the largest groups of food retailers and wholesalers in the country and just as traceability is important to other food suppliers and producers, it is very important for us as well.  Please visit our website to learn more about our Traceability Program.

Mike Howe, Inside Sales Manager

Last month, Mike and his wife Chelsea found out the exciting news that they are going to have a baby girl in October! On the 7th of this month, Mike celebrated his birthday for the 7th time at Tropical!



 

Meghan Bouchie, Sales Representative

Continuing on with her Future Leader experience, last month Meghan traveled to Portland, OR and Seattle, WA.  In Portland, she toured the Pacific Seafood Clackamas plant and learned about ground fish processing.  Additionally, Meghan participated in the North Pacific Fishing Vessel Owners Association (NPFVOA) Vessel Safety program where she took a safety course on sea survival training.  While in Seattle she went on a vessel tour on a Trident boat as well as visiting Cannon Fish to learn about halibut and value-added processing.


Meghan added, 'Thank you very much to Frank Dulcich, Tyson Yeck and Anwer Haider at Pacific Seafood, the entire Trident Team and John and Pete Cannon from Cannon Fish for giving the Future Leaders group a wonderful experience at each facility toured. I would personally like to extend much gratitude as this was my first experience on a boat and at a fish processing plant.'

Tropical History



Since 2001 all of our Ecuadorian farms have had their own hatcheries.  This was the last step to becoming a fully vertically integrated company, giving us total control over every step of the process from the hatchery, processing plant and distribution of our product. The addition of hatcheries has also eased traceability from fingerlings to the end consumer.
