About Us

All about Bumble Bee

In 1899, The Bumble Bee Seafood Company was founded by a handful of dedicated fishermen. Today, we’re a company of proud seafood lovers on a mission to show the world there’s a Better Way to Seafood and inspire others to enjoy, celebrate, and nurture the oceans and everything they give us.

We keep challenging ourselves to redefine how we think about, source, produce, and consume seafood. It’s a mission we live by in every part of our company — from our people, to our products, and ultimately the planet we share.

People
People are essential to achieving our mission. From fishermen to our employee partners, to customers and consumers, we base our actions on shared, transparent values that hold us accountable to each other and the world. Learn More.

Product
We are an ocean-inspired collection of brands. From tuna melts to tuna burgers, salmon poke bowls to salmon patties, sardines on crackers or on cauliflower pizza, we have countless ways to enjoy our food. So go traditional or go wild, there’s no shortage of delicious possibilities, including pescatarian, flexitarian, and vegan (Good Catch) options. Learn more.

Planet
We will always fight for the health of our oceans. We are industry leaders and advocates for sustainable fishing and fishermen because we know the future of our oceans, and all those that benefit from them, depend on us and our actions. Learn more.

The Bumble Bee Seafood Company is headquartered in the heart of downtown San Diego.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

Bumble Bee Seafood Logo

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
