Food Spotlight: Safe Catch Tuna Elite Single Serving Pouch



Elite Single Serving Pouch

Elite is our lowest mercury tuna. It’s a great choice for athletes, kids & pregnant women! Now in single serving pouches! Take them anywhere!

We hand pick premium wild tuna, then test each and every one to a mercury limit that is ten times (10x) lower than the FDA action limit. Safe Catch Elite is the only brand of tuna that meets Consumer Reports’ “Low Mercury” criteria set for pregnant women and children. Safe Catch Elite is the official tuna of the American Pregnancy Association.

Most canned tuna loses flavor and the majority of Omega 3s due to precooking and machine processing. We hand pack premium raw wild tuna steaks to retain all the vital Omega 3 oils and nutrients and then slow cook them to perfection.

We don’t add oil, water, fillers, preservatives, or GMO-Soy broth to our tuna. It’s just pure wild tuna. Just knead the pouch with your hand to reabsorb the natural fish oils before opening. Do not drain.

Our Elite tuna is wild and sustainably caught without using FADs or long lines. We are a proud partner of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program.

Raincoast trading

A can of tuna that comes with a side of sustainability

You can officially stop holding your nose in the tuna aisle now.

Where most of Canada’s largest tinned tuna brands are still sourced from environmentally-dubious fisheries, the albacore tuna from Raincoast Trading, a seafood company based in Delta, B.C., is approved by both the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program and Greenpeace Canada, which recently awarded it top marks for sustainability. The way it’s caught is a big part of the appeal: Raincoast doesn’t use purse seine nets or floating lines that trail with thousands of baited hooks, the way most tuna companies do it.
