Coast to Kitchen
In the bays, mountains, and inlets around Alaska’s capital city, Barnacle forages for local ingredients to produce tasty and nutritious foods. Barnacle is bringing the wild flavors of Southeast Alaska to kitchens all over the region and beyond with their salsas, pickles, and seasonings made from locally harvested bull kelp. Their commitment to stewardship of the environment means that they are careful and intentional about harvesting at sustainable levels in locations that leave the resources as healthy as they found them. Barnacle is firmly rooted here in Southeast Alaska and is committed to benefiting their community through job creation and economic growth. More than just creating delicious foods, Barnacle is working towards strengthening Alaska's food system by producing products from abundant local resources.
