Green Pasture Products has partnered with the following main suppliers to make our cod liver, butter oil and coconut products:
COD LIVER PARTNER
Alaskan Leader Seafoods is very proud to be the exclusive Alaskan Cod Liver supplier for Green Pasture Products.
“We are a vertically integrated ‘Hook and Line’ fishing company in Alaska. Our vessels are the newest and the cleanest in the fleet and maintained so well that we are proud to fly the Maltese Falcon Cross; the symbol of inspection excellence from the American Bureau of Shipping. All of our vessels are American built, U.S. Coast Guard inspected and licensed. Our sustainable fishery is applauded by several conservation organizations including the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch and The Environmental Defense Fund as the most eco-friendly fishing method existing today. What sets us apart from other fishing companies is that our fleet is outfitted with a custom designed and patented Norwegian longline system that places single hooks along the ocean floor. This ‘one hook, one fish’ method of harvesting our catch is the most ecologically responsible and least intrusive on other species habitats.
At the rail of each of our vessels stands the skillful ‘Gaffer’. Often, he faces all that Mother Nature can give him, and he prevails by keeping our company well below the allowable by-catch species standards. At his sea level position, he catches and releases live un-targeted fish, carefully landing only the ones we are fishing for. This results in us as having the absolute cleanest and healthiest method of harvesting Alaska Cod above any other commercial fishing technique. Once the catch is pulled over the rail it goes through an automated bleeding, cleaning and processing system. This system was designed by master food equipment technicians in Iceland, and based on knowledge that they acquired from generations of tradition, along with modern research and development. The fish are thoroughly inspected by our onboard HACCP trained Quality Control staff, and once the fish has been sized, they are quickly frozen to 30 degrees below zero so as to capture that ‘deep white and sweet ocean fresh’ flavor.”
BUTTER OIL PARTNER
The Story Behind Our Butter Oil
As a family, we kept cows on pasture and milked them for the butter oil we created for a number of years until it wasn't sustainable for us to do so any longer. We are now fully partnered with a farm in Argentina to assist us with some of our process. They have provided us with the following statement:
“Our dairy production is located in the heart of the Argentinean Pampas, one of the richest soils in the world. We have a great advantage, we are vertically integrated, in this way we are able to orientate our grasses and our milking production in order to develop the best natural butter oil. It is important to remark that our cows are fed from green pastures every single day. We worked with Green Pasture to match grazing and overall cow treatment protocols to meet their needs. The attributes of the pasture and soil are what gives the butter oil we produce its excellent quality.
We depend on our people, our team of herdsmen, veterinarians, and nutritionists to help us provide the best care possible for our cows. At the end of the day, we take great pride in knowing the work we do matters to so many people all over the world.”
