The Green Ocean brand was founded in 2007, but seafood was in our founder’s blood long before that. Glenn’s great-grandfather – “Pop” – was a fisherman on the original Blue Nose back in the 1920s under Skipper Angus Walters. Needless to say, there is a long history between the Fishery and the Grandy’s of Garnish, Newfoundland.
As a veteran of the Seafood Industry, Glenn has spent the past 34 years working in various areas of the Seafood sector. Traveling the globe for the past 14 years, Glenn has developed a vast knowledge of the global seafood industry – an industry that, as Glenn knows from personal experience, has changed dramatically even just in the past 5 years!
In 2017, the Green Ocean brand was acquired by Tree of Life Canada and as part of the acquisition, Glenn joined Tree of Life to head up their seafood division. Since then, the Green Ocean brand has expanded across Canada and has launched its Organic & Wild Shrimp programs, as well as a Wild Icelandic Fish program, with many more exciting seafood ventures to come.
Sights are also set on launching into the US market with their parent company KeHe, so stay tuned, seafood lovers!
