MIAMI, FL – BluGlacier, a U.S. joint venture by two top sustainable salmon producers in Chile, is pleased to announce that the company will donate 600 pounds of fresh Chilean salmon to DeliverLean Cares today, and is the first donation of salmon that DeliverLean has received to date. The generous contribution will yield nearly 2,000 wholesome meals to local frontline healthcare workers and underserved populations throughout South Florida during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The donation is part of BluGlacier’s commitment to the communities and the environment in which the company operates. DeliverLean, one of the nation’s largest healthy meal delivery services, has been actively devoted to its charitable DeliverLean Cares division throughout the pandemic. Since mid-March, DeliverLean has donated over 100,000 meals to families in need and an increase in demand is expected to last beyond the pandemic as the economy slowly bounces back.
“With a vast population of our community still very much affected by this terrible situation, all industries need to continue to do their part to support so that we can all come out from this as strong as possible,” says Sebastian Goycoolea,Chief Executive Officer of BluGlacier. “We chose to partner with DeliverLean as both of our companies are headquartered in South Florida and share the goal to feed those in need during these trying times. The donated salmon will go toward several of DeliverLean Cares’ giveback initiatives, including meals for first responders, emergency room doctors, nurses, and to Alonzo Mourning Foundation’s Overtown Youth Center.”
In its continuous efforts to support and feed the local community, BluGlacier also donated $2,500 this month to Frontline Foods of South Florida.

Both companies own all aspects of their salmon production, including freshwater hatcheries, saltwater farms and primary and secondary processing facilities.
