A PASSION FOR SEAFOOD
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!
OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
Green Ocean, in its very name, suggests a vested interest in protecting the health and future of our supply sources globally. We value not only quality, but also a responsible approach to our products. This is why we consciously and actively source all our products from an accredited sustainable supply.
Green Ocean has also taken this one step further by co-branding many of its products to include two levels of sustainability – we have an MSC/Ocean Wise Wild Fish program from Iceland and an ASC/Ocean Wise Shrimp program from Vietnam. Also look for specially-marked packages of Green Ocean products with our Seafood With Nothing to Hide stamp, available in Shrimp, Fish, and Scallop varieties.
We aim to always keep our consumers informed, bringing awareness to “Clean” ingredients and processes for Green Ocean products.
