Intercity Packers Ltd.
Founded by Dave T. Athey in March of 1963 out of the back of his pick-up truck, they have grown into a business that employs 300 people in four different locations (Vancouver, Victoria, Calgary and Queen Charlotte). They are the premier fish supplier for Canada and can now offer coast to coast supply. They supply their customers from a staggering list of over 3,500 delicious products that come from the clear, icy cold waters of the Pacific Northwest to as far away as New Zealand, Russia, Namibia, Ecuador and Vietnam just to name a few.
Sustainability is an issue that is of increasing concern to their customers and to the public in general. Albion has led the industry for the past several years on this subject. To that end, Albion fisheries currently works very closely with the local Ocean Wise program, the nationwide Seachoice organization, and the global organization MSC.(Marine Stewardship Council). In sourcing from reputable, traceable fisheries they can tell their customers the exact area and method that all products are harvested under and if there are any concerns with that fishery.
