Imitation crab has evolved… naturally.
Simply Surimi is real seafood, made simply. It’s fully cooked, offered in flake and leg styles, and packaged similar to imitation crab. However, because it’s made with wild Alaska Pollock and just 7 natural ingredients, Simply Surimi is cleaner and more wholesome seafood. There’s nothing imitation about it.
The making of surimi seafood follows a centuries-old process first developed in Japan in which white fish is minced, seasoned and cooked. Simply Surimi is made using this same process with the end result a mild-flavored, fully cooked seafood that is ready-to-use in healthy salads, hot dishes and for simple snacking.
Simply Surimi’s natural goodness is confirmed by our recent verification by the Non-GMO Project, which verifies that the ingredients used to make Simply Surimi are not grown or harvested using genetic engineering. Further, as a certified gluten-free, heart healthy and sustainably sourced food, Simply Surimi is the right choice for anyone seeking great-tasting seafood that’s also good for you.
A Leader in the Seafood Industry
Trans-Ocean Products, Inc. opened its doors in the fall of 1985. Our location in Bellingham, Washington was selected for its proximity to the cold, clean waters of Alaska from which our key raw materials are sourced. In an area known for its fresh air, beautiful coastline and mountain views, we also found a skilled and committed work force that has proven to be the very foundation of our success.
Trans-Ocean is well-known in the U.S. seafood industry among consumers and retailers as a leading processor and consumer brand. We were an early supporter of sustainable fishing practices and we were among the first companies to display the MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) blue mark on our packaging. In addition to Simply Surimi, we offer Crab Classic, which is the #1 selling brand of surimi seafood in the country. We consistently seek to introduce the healthy benefits of surimi seafood to consumers through new and interesting recipe and usage ideas.
