Split the Seafood Bill Week
Tidings | Mar 15, 2022
Our sustainable seafood team launches a week-long promotion in support of local restaurants and our seafood industry.
Did you know restaurants and the foodservice industry are responsible for two-thirds of seafood sales in the U.S.? That means pandemic impacts on local restaurants directly affect the seafood industry. As restaurants struggle with staffing shortages and increased costs, the seafood businesses who supply them also feel the burden.
That’s why we’re encouraging you to support our Culinary Partners and the fishing communities who supply them seafood. We’re providing an extra incentive by splitting the bill with 300 lucky restaurant-goers during the week of March 21–27.
For each of our Culinary Partner restaurants, we’ll split the seafood bill with ten lucky customers per restaurant by sending them a $30 Visa gift card.
"“We’re fortunate to have some of the best seafood available in the world, and we love to celebrate that. We’re equally fortunate to have partners at GMRI working to preserve our livelihoods and now driving sales on our behalf.”John Lowell Proprietor, Andy's Old Port Pub
The Split the Bill campaign is possible thanks in part to the generosity of our presenting sponsor, Hannaford, with additional support from Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, SMRT Inc., and The Boulos Company.
Learn how you can support our local restaurants that prioritize and source local seafood for a chance to win a $30 Visa gift card.
