New Partnership Will Highlight Nutritional Benefits of Bristol Bay Salmon to Babies and Toddlers
Bristol Bay Native Corporation (BBNC), Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association (BBRSDA), and Bambino’s Baby Food are excited to announce a new partnership to promote nutritious Bristol Bay wild salmon to families around the world.
The partnership is a natural fit given BBNC and BBRSDA’s combined focus on sustaining Bristol Bay’s world-renowned wild salmon run and Bambino’s priority of serving all-natural, preservative-free products. Together, the organizations will share the stories of Bristol Bay salmon with families around the world who value quality ingredients by including informational cards in Bambino’s sockeye salmon meal packages. Bambino’s sockeye salmon products include salmon filets, salmon strips, and salmon bisque meals that are suitable for a variety of ages.
“Salmon is a fundamental part of our cultures and our values, from protecting the waters they spawn in to ensuring our shareholders are able to fill their freezers every year,” says Jason Metrokin, president and CEO of BBNC. “We’re looking forward to partnering with Bambino’s and BBRSDA to share the stories of why salmon is so crucial to our region and our shareholders.”
“What our little ones eat the first three years of life is the foundation on which their overall health stands. Our Bambino’s Bristol Bay wild-caught and sustainable Alaskan salmon products offer not only an abundance of healthy omega-3 fatty acids essential to neural brain development, but also 7 to 10 times more nutrition. Our missions, together with BBNC and BBRSDA’s, are perfectly aligned to provide families the healthiest, most pure foods with full transparency, traceability, and love while caring for our environment and honoring Alaskan traditions,” shares Zoi Maroudas, medical professional and president and founder of Bambino’s Baby Food.
“We want to ensure that people everywhere and of all ages not only reap the nutritional benefits of Bristol Bay sockeye salmon but are also aware of the origin and sustainability of the Bristol Bay region,” says Lilani Dunn, marketing director of BBRSDA.
