StarKist's Charlie the Tuna, a fixture since 1961, says the company is the world's #1 supplier of canned tuna. It's a top producer, distributor, and marketer of shelf-stable seafood products nationwide. Besides water- and oil-packed canned tuna, StarKist's other albacore and regular tuna products include tuna fillets in pouches, ready-mixed tuna salad, and ready-to-eat lunch kits. To add market value to its portfolio, StarKist has introduced ready-to-use marinated tuna in pouches. The company's products are marketed to food retailers and foodservice operators worldwide. StarKist is owned by South Korea's Dongwon Industries.
