Alaska canned seafood – the perfect choice for food aid programs

Alaska Seafood products are ideal for food aid purposes in the U.S. and overseas. It is shelf stable, easy to transport and prepare, and provides concentrated nutrition for recipients of all ages in all types of programs. Alaska Seafood is one of the best sources of shelf stable marine protein and omega-3 fatty acids in the food aid basket.

The Alaska Global Food Aid Program is also working with food aid and other consumers in Africa, Asia and Latin America on research and development of new health protecting and easy to prepare products made from sustainable wild Alaska Seafood.

Our three main products for international food aid include: Alaska canned salmon, the traditional mainstay, and two new products, Alaska canned herring and Alaska Seafood powder. All three are highly nutritious – herring has the most omega-3’s while the powder provides high quality human-grade marine protein in the most concentrated form.

Our two main products for domestic food aid include: Alaska canned salmon and Alaska pollock.
