About the Company
Clear Springs Food was founded by Jess O. (Ted) Eastman in 1966. At that time, Ted’s goal was to raise 400,000 lbs of rainbow trout and sell them to 1000 Springs Trout Farms (his previous employer). They decided not to buy his fish, so he built a small processing operation instead. But the tables turned, and in 1981 Clear Springs Trout Company purchased 1000 Springs Trout Farms. The company name was changed to Clear Springs Foods, Inc. in 1991.
Clear Springs Foods calls Snake River Canyon of southern Idaho’s Magic Valley home. Here, their rainbow trout is farm-raised in concrete raceways fed by an abundance of crystal clear spring water. Ideal growing conditions, combined with a commitment to quality and innovation, have made Clear Springs the world’s largest producer of rainbow trout, processing over 25 million pounds a year.
At the Soda Springs brood station, Clear Springs is capable of producing more than 80 million rainbow trout eggs a year. This facility also includes a brood stock selection program to select the best trout families. A patented, automated feed system distributes feed to the fish throughout the day. Production farms are continually monitored and inventoried to provide highly accurate production forecasts. In addition, they have partnered with farms in Chile at which trout are raised following the exact same high standards used at their Idaho farms.
Clear Springs’ uncompromising dedication to quality and total vertical integration assures you the finest products available, with outstanding consistency. From egg to market, Clear Springs maintains control over every phase of production, delivering quality products year round to customers throughout the world. Their Chilean partners are held to these same high standards..
