The Voyageur seafood brand is associated with the same excellence and reliability as the goods carried by the original Canadian merchant voyageurs. We continuously travel to these products’ sources and conduct audits to ensure superior quality, excellent taste, and sustainability.
About the Brand: Voyageur Seafood
After the establishment of Oceanfood Sales house brand Nanuk, we created and developed Voyageur. The voyageur itself is an iconic symbol of Canadian history. These river travelers have been long regarded as traders and purveyors of the finest goods. The Voyageur logo carries these associations of excellence and reliability, symbolizing Canada’s best. When you see the Voyageur brand, it is your assurance of superior quality, taste and value.
Voyageur is a proudly Canadian owned-and-operated brand, importing ocean and seafood products from around the world for the Canadian market. We have recognized that there is a lack of clarity around environmental and food safety labeling. For that reason, we have adapted our practices to better fit our consumers’ needs by making it easier for you to identify food that has been responsibly sourced and processed in a way that ensures it is safe for consumption.
We ensure that plants producing Voyageur seafood products continuously follow sustainable practices to ensure a healthy environment, in addition to fair business practices and food safety regulations. This way the Voyageur products that go into the box and end up with Canadian restaurant operators and retail shoppers are always of the highest possible quality.
Throughout the years, we have grown our house brand Voyageur and developed it into a leading import product that is sourced from the best producers from around the world. Knowing and understanding where food comes from is important to us. All of Voyageur’s seafood products have been carefully sourced by us. In addition, we continuously meet in person with the producers to ensure quality. We frequently visit Voyageur seafood producers to inspect their facilities and ensure that our standards are being met throughout their processes. We make sure that the companies and processing facilities are all modern and up to Canadian Food Inspection Agency standards.
We also require third-party certification like Safe Quality Food (SQF) or British Retail Consortium (BRC). By partnering with an array of global businesses from around the world, we are able to offer products such as squid, basa, prawns, crab, bacon-wrapped scallops, wild salmon fillets, steelhead salmon loins, smoked salmon, lingcod fillets, and caviar. The Voyageur label carries our seal to indicate quality products sourced by us. Our employees work alongside NGOs to make sure that ethical farming and harvesting practices are in place for both wild and farm products, and are continuously evaluating to ensure that they meet our rigorous standards.
Oceanfood Sales founder John Graham had a humble beginning in British Columbia’s seafood industry before establishing Oceanfood Sales in 1970. Voyageur has long been our leading import brand. By continuously traveling to where the products are sourced and conducting audits to ensure top quality, we ensure that our products are always an excellent experience for our consumers.
