Food is among the most vital resources we daily obtain from the planet. But great taste is essential to enjoyment — and the health of our food impacts our own. This is why our pledge at Wild Planet is as simple and direct as our ways:
This is The Wild Way.
Sensational flavor, responsible harvesting and fresher, healthier, natural food. Nothing added but the goodness it already has. Isn’t that the whole point to eating?
We source our tuna exclusively from pole and line catch fisheries, never using FAD purse seine or long-line gear. It’s better for the planet and better for your family. Since 2004, in just this fashion, we’ve selected only the finest quality, 100% sustainably caught seafood for all our packaged products, placing human and environmental health as our company’s core priorities. Such uncompromising commitment to sustainability has earned Wild Planet the #1 ranking in Greenpeace’s 2017 review of widely available canned tuna brands. This is the kind of leadership that has always defined Wild Planet.
A marine ecosystem that is healthy, vibrant, prolific with biodiverse harmony and balance. This is the way we found the oceans and this is the way we must leave them. The Wild Way is to treat the ecosystem with respect, to take only what it can give and to waste nothing taken.
Wild Planet Sardines are sustainably harvested in well-managed fisheries with negligible by-catch and no habitat damage. Sardines are versatile and flavorful, each a nutritional powerhouse packed with protein, calcium, iron and potassium. These fish provide an excellent way to eat lower in the food chain.
Wild caught salmon from the Pacific Northwest (Alaska and British Columbia) are considered a BEST CHOICE for sustainability as per the recommendations of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program. Pacific salmon are among the most intensively managed species in the world, with excellent monitoring of both the fish populations and the fishery itself.
White Anchovies are a great consumer choice, because they are naturally rich in abundant nutrients, like Omega 3, protein, calcium and more. We believe humans would benefit greatly from adding these tasty little fish to our diets. The White Anchovy is a delicate fish with a naturally tender texture and rich flavor. When one considers anchovies, we immediately think of the highly salty brown anchovy sold as a topping for Caesar salads and pizzas.
The difference is those types are cured in salt brine for weeks before processing, which fundamentally changes the flavor of the fish. Wild Planet White Anchovies, on the other hand, are canned directly out of the water without brine storage or even freezing. We simply can the anchovies ‘sardine style’ in either water or extra virgin olive oil. The result is a delicate fish with mild flavor – perfect for a tapas platter, over a salad or simply on a cracker. These are possibly the tastiest canned fish of all!
They are sustainably caught by targeted small-scale purse seine vessels and have almost no by-catch of any other species.
