Here at the Gulf of Georgia Cannery’s gift shop, we sell local B.C. seafood products, and we are excited to be welcoming another local brand to our collection – St. Jean’s! This cannery, located in Nanaimo, B.C., opened its doors in 1961 and is the last operational cannery in the province. Aside from producing a variety of delicious seafood products, all caught and processed locally, St. Jean’s also cans and smokes products for sport fishers.
In our gift shop, you will find a great selection of St. Jean’s fine products – from regular or smoked sockeye salmon to Pacific Oyster soup and beautiful gift sets, there’s something for everyone! St. Jean’s canned products feature easy-open lids and all their seafood is hand-packed, which means that you can expect to find high quality fish and consistent portions in every can that you purchase. Channel your inner Master Chef with products such as the butter clams and the seafood chowder spice, which form the perfect pairing for a delicious homemade clam chowder. Not a fan of cooking? Not to worry – we’ve got your dinner plans covered with St. Jean’s canned clam chowder! This handy product is a breeze to prepare and contains nothing but simple, natural ingredients and a touch of spice.
These great products have made their debut at our gift shop, so be sure to stop by and check them out!
