Timed to coincide with the annual Pacific Marine Expo, E&E Foods has established a new tradition for its fishermen and employees--an open house at our 75,000 sq ft Renton, WA facility. It affords the entire E&E production and sales chain (and families) to meet in an informal setting and share fish tales! In addition to providing beverages, E&E hired four food trucks to cater to our guests hankerings for Thai food, pizza, burgers, and ice cream.

Ugashik River Sockeye Tendering

E&E Foods is supplied sockeye salmon a number of ways. Sometimes the boats come right to our plant and other times to contracted tenders in a variety of locations, as is the case in some of the Bristol Bay river systems. This allows fishermen to focus on getting fish out of the water, critical given the shortness of the season.

Click on the following to hear E&E's COO, Ken Ng, talk about E&E's recent acquisition of Cannon Fish.

Need for vertical integration was key to E&E's purchase of Cannon Fish
E&E now has brand that it can develop.

As acquisitions go, Seattle-based E&E Foods' purchase of seafood supplier and processor Cannon Fish Company (CFC) happened relatively quickly.
The two companies started talking about it three months ago, Ken Ng, E&E’s chief operating officer, told IntraFish on Monday.
Cannon was doing some custom processing for E&E when the two began talking about a potential deal. “We were really impressed with the people at Cannon, and the timing was right,” said Ng.
E&E is consolidating its Seattle area processing operations into a single 76,000 square foot facility in Renton, Washington. E&E bought the plant from Orca Bay last year. It is moving its operation in Federal Way, Washington and Cannon’s operations in Kent, Washington, to the Renton facility.

Vertical Integration
The purchase of Cannon fits into E&E’s strategy of becoming vertically integrated, said Ng. E&E has been operating in the Seattle area since 1932 and has a large presence in Alaska with shoreside plants in Egegik (Coffee Point Seafoods), Kenai (Pacific Star Seafoods), and Yakutat (Yakutat Seafoods) and a floating processor (Cape Greig) in Bristol Bay and Kotzebue – supplying salmon, cod and halibut primarily.
The Cannon acquisition, said Ng, gives E&E a consumer brand it can further develop. “We have the raw material and would like to start broadening our product line,” said Ng.

E&E Foods' Alaska-based plants kicked off the 2018 salmon season with our annual BBQs.
Coffee Point Seafoods of Washington, based near the Egegik River on Bristol Bay, hosted the well-attended event despite wind and rain. The plant has already shipped good volumes of fresh sockeye off the beach and to our customers across the United States.
Our Pacific Star Plant on the Kenai River in Cook Inlet had over 200 attendees, including fishermen, plant workers and their families. E&E Foods continues to expand its presence in Alaska, increasing plant efficiency with upgrades in equipment and processes across its plants in Bristol Bay, Cook Inlet and Yakutat.
