ABOUT FORAGED & FOUND
Foraged & Found was founded in 2017 by Jenn Brown, a former private chef who cooked onboard tourism yachts that traveled along the Alaskan Inside Passage. She was immediately astounded by the majestic, awe-insipring unspoiled Alaskan wilderness. Exploring the natural richness ofevery waterway and forest resulted in unique and incredible culinary discoveries-from fish and edible aquatic plants to berries, veggies, and mushrooms-that she had never seen before. With a desire to share these newfound secrets with the world, she put her expertise to work developing delicious, familiar food products like salsas, pickles, and sauces, with wild-foraged Alaskan superfood ingredients like bull kelp and sea asparagus. Jenn's passion to showcase these foods, while also protecting and maintaining the splendor of the environment, has given rise to a meaningful mission.
Joined by partners Ciarra Perro and Chelsea Goucher, two Alaskan-born women who share Jenn's passion, Foraged & Found is committed to promoting manufacturing in Alaska, creating jobs, and supporting the work being done to promote mariculture and expand fisheries by organizations like Southeast Conference and the Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation.

LIVING OFF THE LAND & SEA IS A LIFESTYLE
You can't help but be inspired to protect your environment when you're surrounded by a wondrous, pristine, unspoiled frontier like Alaska. Here, living off the land and sea is a lifestyle. It's a rugged, harsh existence,but a refreshing, authentic experience that no Alaskan would trade for the world!
Not only are we passionate about sharing the bounty of our unique wilderness, we're committed to keeping it that way. From recyclable packaging to our wild harvesting and foraging processes to our involvement with local organizations to protect aquatic plant life, our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainability is quite literally second nature.
WILD ALASKAN INGREDIENTS
What are wild alaskan ingredients? They are exactly what they sound like! We literally go out into the Alaskan wilderness and the pristine local waterways of Ketchikan and forage for the key ingredients in our uniquely Alaskan products. Wild harvested aquatic plants like kelp and sea asparagus are central to the flavors and nutritional profiles of our pickles, salsas, sauces, and pesto, and provide trace minerals not often found in soil-farmed foods. They are calcium-rich, provide an excellent source of iodine, carry vitamins and minerals in quantities rarely seen outside of supplement form, and enhance the flavor of your favorite foods. Wild Alaskan Ingredients are simply super-charged superfoods that you'll find nowhere else on Earth!
