October 2, 2009

Look's Gourmet Food Company of Whiting, Maine grew its revenue an impresive 139.5% from 2005 through 2008, earning its place amoung the United States fastest growing, privately-held companies. Look's Gourmet Food produces specialty canned seafood soups and sauces, cooking stocks, clam juice, seafood meats, and sustainable fish.

One of the keys to Look's success is the company's focus on sustainable seafood products. Under the company's Bar Harbor brand it has three all-natural soups utilizing Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified, sustainable fish: Fish Chowder, made with MSC Alaskan Pollock, and Salmon Chowder and Salmon Bisque, both made with MSC Alaskan Salmon.

Previously, the company's fish soups were made with local North Atlantic fish, but when it learned that these fisheries were at risk for over-fishing with the potential for endangering the sustainability of the species, it made the decision to support the principles of the MSC; to participate in maintaining the health and sustainability of global fisheries.

Through a process of certifying its production facility to MSC guidelines and garnering the support of local fish and seafood suppliers in Maine, the Bar Harbor brand is now one of the premier U.S. suppliers of MSC certified value-added products. The products are easily identified by the blue fish logo (shown in the image below) printed on the product labels.
