Sea Watch Zero Waste

Sea Watch our clam supplier is dedicated to sustainability through their “Zero Waste” initiative. After harvesting their clams, Sea Watch returns all empty shells back into the Chesapeake Bay where they are harvested to keep the clam population growing by offering “beds” for clams to live.

Reducing Food Waste

Food waste is a big concern of ours, but we are lucky that we have very minimal waste in the production of our soup because of the nature of canning; just as people canned historically and still do today to preserve their food.
