    About Us

    StarKist Co. provides trusted, healthy food products in the United States.

As America’s favorite tuna, StarKist represents a tradition of quality, consumer trust and a commitment to sustainability. StarKist’s charismatic brand icon, Charlie® the Tuna, swam into the hearts of tuna fans in 1961 and remains a fan favorite today.
