Clover Leaf Seafoods

In 1889 the Clover Leaf brand was first introduced to Canadians when the company began operating the first commercial salmon cannery on the Fraser River near Vancouver, British Columbia.

Over the last 135 years, Clover Leaf has grown to offer a variety of seafood products including canned tuna, salmon, sardines, oysters, mussels, clams, and shrimp. Clover Leaf is consistently voted by Canadians as the #1 most trusted brand for canned seafood. Today, canned seafood is bought by 70% of Canadians. Clover Leaf is the #1 brand in the category, with over 40% share of the market and 90% brand awareness. Clover Leaf Seafoods offers seafood under the Clover Leaf and Brunswick brands. Brunswick is the #1 brand of canned sardines in Canada. Our International division, Bumble Bee Seafoods International, exports to over 40 countries around the world, and Brunswick is the #1 brand of Sardines in the Caribbean region.

Clover Leaf Seafoods, along with our U.S. affiliate, Bumble Bee Foods, form one of North America’s largest branded seafood companies. In 2020, Clover Leaf Seafoods, along with Bumble Bee Foods, was acquired by our long-time partner, FCF Company Ltd. FCF is a privately held company and one of the world’s largest marine trading companies, with 50 years of experience in the supply of tuna and other seafood. With FCF as a strong strategic owner, Clover Leaf Seafoods is well-positioned for future growth.
