Products on the Market

Gold&Green Foods® was awarded with the SEAL (Sustainability, Environmental Achievement and Leadership) Sustainable Product Award for its plant-based protein, Pulled Oats®. The SEAL Sustainable Product Award is a globally recognized award that honors innovative and impactful products that are literally “purpose-built” for a sustainable future. Award applicants were judged on the following criteria: impact metrics, innovation/uniqueness of the product, and its ability to inspire sustainable change. Determined to bridge the gap between food, nutrition and sustainability, Gold&Green Foods® is the first and only company to design and engineer a unique mechanical process that combines sustainably-sourced Nordic oats with fava beans and yellow peas to create a nutrient-dense meat alternative that can be produced at scale to feed the growing population.  


Blumar has welcomed the latest rating from Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch®, showing a positive progress to its "yellow list" as a good alternative for farmed Atlantic salmon from Chile’s Magallanes region. This is a major milestone, that will help differentiate the Magallanes origin, including Blumar´s Laguna Blanca brand, as these lists have a strong influence on hundreds of professional seafood buyers and thousands of consumers.  The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program creates science-based recommendations that help consumers and businesses make ocean-friendly seafood choices. The Seafood Watch list assigns seafood a red, yellow, or green rating, based on their sustainability and environmental impact. Red is "avoid," yellow is "good alternative" and green is "best choice."  Laguna Blanca is exclusively distributed in the U.S. by BluGlacier, one of Chile's largest salmon importers to the U.S., that has distributed premium and reliable salmon products over the past ten years to retailers, restaurants, and wholesalers. Widely recognized for producing Chile’s most sustainable farmed salmon, Blumar has also been recognized by the prestigious Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) with a certification for its responsible fish farming.
