Tri-Union Seafoods tries hard to unite seafood lovers under the Chicken of the Sea and other banners. The company, which does business as Chicken of the Sea International, makes and markets some of the top brands of canned tuna in the US. Tri-Union cans tuna (Albacore and light), salmon, crab, shrimp, oysters, clams, sardines, and mackerel for sale in North America. The company also offers value-added seafood products, such as frozen and shelf-stable pouches (including smoked salmon), and "peel & eat" cups (salmon and tuna). In addition to its own brands, Tri-Union also offers product-development and private-label services.
The company caters to consumers who prefer to have healthy choices. To this end, Tri-Union Seafoods offers its Genova brand of canned tuna and salmon. The gourmet-style line contains no additives or preservatives.
Most of its canning operations are located in Southeast Asia. The seafood supplier, however, has brought some of its canning operations back to US soil in recent years. It established a facility in Lyons, Georgia, in 2009.
Known as California Tuna Canning Company in 1914, Tri-Union Seafoods has been a subsidiary of Thai Union Frozen Products since 2000. – less
