“With the travel restrictions we saw an opportunity to make it easier for people to buy seafood from our region,” said Joel Richardson, Vice President of Public Relations for Cooke. “We have been working hard to supply grocery stores, because in the Maritimes, seafood is a huge part of our culture which brings comfort during challenging times. Our seafood boxes are an ideal care package to send to family or friends you haven’t seen for a while. As a local family company, it is important for us to conveniently provide people with the seafood they love so we can all support sea farmers and fishers.”
