Premium International Food Sales Ltd.
PFS was established in 1990 in Richmond. When they began, demand for B.C. sea cucumber was low, as the larger muscles made it unappealing to Chinese markets if the traditional way of processing was used. PFS made the product more appealing by separating the meat from the skin and hiring local cooks to design recipes to promote these new products. The company maintains a commitment to sustainability by only harvesting B.C. sea cucumbers within the government-designated quotas that ensure a stable ecosystem. PFS also supports local First Nations communities through donations and by creating employment opportunities.
