No Salt is Back and Pricing Updates

Mixed Case of No Salt Added Readhead and Think Pink SalmonI am pleased to announce that the No Salt Redhead and No Salt Think Pink varieties of canned salmon are once again available on our website.

Due solely to my increased costs, the price of a box of 12/7.5 oz Redhead, both with and without added salt, will go up to $73. Also, ThinkPink 12/7.5 oz, with and without added salt, will go up to $57.

There was plenty of salmon, particularly sockeye, in Alaska this year, but we are seeing increased demand from the fresh and frozen fish markets which compete with the amount of fish we have available to can.

Additionally, the costs to maintain a safe and smooth operating cannery continue to rise. I am sorry the price is going up, but those are the facts that I must deal with. Thanks to all of you loyal customers!

Wild Alaska salmon, even at these prices, is still a nutritional bargain.

Are gold baubles worth the potential permanent loss of this spectacular place?

Most who order seem to be military personnel, but we also get orders from people in the diplomatic corps. It is a privilege to fill these orders and we try to add something extra special with the limited extra room in the USPS flat rate boxes that we use.

From now on, when I am fulfilling orders to identifiable ‘APO,’ and the like, addresses, I will refund the buyer 10%. We should have done this sooner.
