This is the only company I buy my seafood from, because they test their seafood for toxins. I also buy Wagyu beef + grass-fed bison burgers from them – so delicious. I’ve been a long-time customer, for over 15 years, ever since I started caring about my food sourcing. They share on their website that their seafood is very low in mercury, PCBs and other “persistent organic pollutants” (e.g., pesticides, dioxins, furans, and organobromides). They also have a whole page devoted to Fukishima and six rounds of testing done since the nuclear plant meltdown in Japan.
Over the years, Vital Choice has greatly increased their product offerings. They now sell Alaskan salmon, halibut, tuna, cod, sablefish, rockfish, salmon roe, sushi-grade salmon + tuna, poke kits, salmon sausages, patties, dogs, burgers, bacon + jerky, scallops, clams, oysters, mussels, shrimp, spot prawns, lobster, crab, calamari, anchovies, sardines, canned salmon/tuna, pork, bison, beef, chicken, and many supplements and condiments. All of their offerings are top quality — wild seafood, grass-fed meats, crate-free pork, pastured poultry, organic flash frozen fruits, and organic dark chocolate.
High quality seafood + animal proteins are expensive, but there are ways to save money. I always try to buy in bulk; the higher the quantity, the lower the per-piece price for most items. They also have a rewards club and weekly specials where they give away free product with orders. I always wait for items I love to become available in their weekly special before I order – I’ve gotten sablefish, Alaskan King salmon, spot prawns and other delicacies this way. I also purchase the 4 ounce salmon to save money, as it is more affordable than the standard 6 ounce option yet I find it fills me up just fine.
We live in a scary world right now with most of our food sources being contaminated with a plethora of different toxins — from mercury and other heavy metals to pcbs, radioactivity and pharmaceuticals. This is the only company I will buy seafood from because they test for many pollutants and show all the results on their website. Their products are delicious, their service is impeccable, and their offerings are quite extensive. I love their grass-fed beef and bison hamburgers, as well. I’ve been a loyal customer for over 15 years now! I always buy in bulk to get the lowest per-item price, and I do their rewards program and wait for my favorite products to be offered as weekly bonuses in their newsletter to save as much money as I can.
