Trident wins $3 million USDA wild salmon bid

The USDA has made record government purchases for Alaska products this year.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) on Wednesday announced Trident Seafoods as the winner of a bid for 324,000 pounds of frozen wild salmon fillets, worth around $3.1 million (€2.8 million).

Trident will supply the Alaska salmon products to US schools nationwide starting in October through March, according to the USDA.

Earlier this year, the USDA authorized a record Alaska pollock purchasing program that officials say will offset harm done by the US-China trade war.
