Seattle, WA (KINY) - The winners of the Alaska Symphony of Seafood during the Pacific Marine Expo in Seattle have been announced.
Each product entered into the competition was grouped into one of four categories: Retail, Foodservice, Beyond the Plate and Beyond the Egg. The products were judged by a panel of experts. Another event was held for the public where guests sampled each product and voted on a favorite. Those votes were counted to determine the winner of the Seattle People's Choice award.
This year’s first place winners in each category include:
- RETAIL: Premium Wild Caught Alaskan Cod with Lemon Herb Butter by Alaskan Leader Seafoods
- FOODSERVICE: Hot and Spicy Wild Alaskan Pollock Fish Sandwich by Trident Seafoods
- BEYOND THE PLATE: Cod Crunchies Pet Treats by Alaskan Leader Seafoods
- BEYOND THE EGG: Wild Alaska Pollock Roe – Barako Style
- SEATTLE PEOPLE’S CHOICE: Jack Link’s Salmon Jerky by Link Snacks, Inc.
The winners of each category, as well as the grand prize winner, will receive booth space at the Seafood Expo North America in March, as well as airfare to and from the show provided by Alaska Air Cargo, and entry into the SENA new products contest, Seafood Excellence Awards.
All of the winners, including second and third place, will be announced on February 27th at the Symphony Awards Ceremony and Legislative Reception in Juneau, Alaska, held in collaboration with the United Fishermen of Alaska.
