From sea to salsa

by The 100 Companies

What is your secret salsa ingredient? At Barnacle, the secret weapon is kelp. Yes, kelp. Barnacle’s offerings include kelp pickles, kelp hot sauce and kelp seasoning – just to name a few.

The kelp used in Barnacle products comes from local farms across the coast of Alaska. The Hump Island Oyster Company in Ketchikan is one such supplier. The family-owned company has been farming kelp since 2016.

While kelp farming is relatively new in Alaska, kelp seems to be the quintessential Alaska-grown product. All that is needed is clean, cold water, good currents and some hard-working Alaskans. So get yourself some kelp!
