Bainbridge Island, Washington-headquartered SeaShare, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing seafood to food banks, has begun a strategic partnership with Hook Line and Savor. The frozen seafood start-up company based in Gloucester, Massachusetts, is part of Gorton’s Inc., which is a subsidiary of Japanese seafood conglomerate Nippon Suisan Kaisha, Ltd.
Through this new partnership, Hook Line and Savor will devote 5% of all profits from the sale of its new allergy-friendly frozen seafood line to SeaShare to support the donation of seafood to food banks and charitable feeding centers throughout the United States.
“SeaShare is proud to partner with Hook Line and Savor. We share a mission to provide nutritious seafood to more people across the country. Hook Line and Savor is giving back in a big way, and we are thankful for their commitment to help us bring more seafood to food banks,” said Jim Harmon, executive director of SeaShare.
Frederica Turner, founder of Hook Line and Savor, added: “Seafood is one of the most nutritious and healthy proteins, but it is also one of the most expensive. For this reason, we are excited to support SeaShare’s mission to bring more seafood to food banks. Everyone should be able to enjoy the great taste and nutritious benefits of seafood!”
Among Hook Line and Savor’s retail products are Black Bean Crusted Cod Fillets in 225-gram twin-packs, Crispy Beer Battered Haddock with tartar sauce, and Citrus Ginger Salmon with garlic and brown sugar sauce. The line is currently available in Kroger supermarket outlets in the Midwest and will soon be launching at select Wegmans stores.
SeaShare was founded in 1994 to help the seafood industry donate to hunger relief efforts across the United States. To date, it has supplied over 220 million servings of fishery products to food banks across the nation. Donors in collaborative effort range from small, independent fishermen to large-scale harvesting and processing vessels, processors, importers, distributors and cold storage warehouse operators.
