01 Jul The Cloverdale Source – FISH IN SPACE
Cloverdale company’s salmon is out of this world – Literally
July-August • 2009
What do space suits and salmon jerky have in common? They are both in space right now, on the International Space Station mission Expedition 20, with Canadian astronaut Robert Thirsk and his crew members.
Mike’s Sundance Seafood in Cloverdale was approached by the Canadian Space Agency after some- one with the organization stumbled upon its product.
The company sent samples of their West Coast Select products and after a selection process their original salmon jerky and smoked king salmon were chosen to be part of the space menu.
The food will be delivered to the International Space Station at differ- ent times throughout the six-month mission.
President and owner Mike Denike is very excited to have his products selected.
“While I was growing up I was in total awe of the astronauts,” Denike said. “To know my products will nourish and provide a taste of Canada on a mission fills me with pride.”
The company was started out of a home 19 years ago and it has since built a name for itself in the community.
Mike’s Sundance Seafood products can be found all over the Vancouver International Airport, at T&T Supermarkets, IGA stores, and many other retail locations all over the area.
The company also ships to Ontario, Alberta and overseas locations. For more information on their products visit westcoastselect.ca.
