Whole Foods adds Salty Girl Seafood’s award-winning line of sustainable seafood to stores in Northern California

Salty Girl Seafood expanded into Whole Foods Northern California stores in early April

San Francisco, California, April 19, 2016 – The Santa Barbara-based seafood company, which supplies sustainable, traceable, ready-to-cook seafood to grocery stores across Southern California – including Bristol Farms, Clarks, and Lassens – now sells its products throughout 34 Whole Foods stores in the Northern California region.

“Moving our line into Whole Foods in this region is a great fit for our products,” said co-founder Norah Eddy. “Opportunities for the everyday consumer to purchase sustainable seafood that has accurate, easy-to-understand information about where and how it was caught are beginning to grow, but still difficult to find in your regular grocery store. We’re here to change that.” Salty Girl Seafood will bring all three products in their line to Whole Foods stores in the region - Black Cod with Sweet & Smoky Teriyaki, Coho Salmon with Lemon Pepper and Garlic, and Pacific Rockfish with Garlic Fresh Veggies. All of the items are sustainably sourced, traceable back to the fishermen or fishing community where it was caught, and seasoned with healthy, gluten-free recipes.

The Salty Girl Seafood retail brand launched in September 2015 to simplify purchasing and preparing sustainable, traceable seafood. In February, the brand was named as finalist for a prestigious NEXTY Award, an internationally recognized award given to companies with the most innovative natural products. “We are so excited to expand our reach in Northern California and grow our line into stores throughout the rest of the country in the coming year,” said Eddy.
