Dec 06, 2013

Company Recognized by Portland Business Journal in the Agriculture and Forest Products Category

PORTLAND, Ore. – Dec. 6, 2013 – Pacific Seafood, the family-owned seafood company based in Portland, Ore., was honored at The Portland Business Journal’s annual Oregon’s Most Admired Companies luncheon yesterday with over 800 Oregon executives in attendance. Pacific Seafood was named Oregon’s 8th Most Admired Company in the agriculture and forest products category and was similarly honored in 2011 and 2009.

Winners were based on a survey the Portland Business Journal conducted via a phone survey of CEOs across Oregon. Participants were asked their opinions on the greatest companies in Oregon. Award recipients included companies in the following eight industry categories: agriculture and forest products, commercial real estate, financial services, health care, nonprofits, professional services, technology and traditional manufacturing as well as the most admired company across all industries.

“We are honored to be recognized by the local business community along with many of our fellow companies we work alongside as we all strive to create stronger communities within our great state,” said Frank Dulcich, president and CEO of Pacific Seafood. “Much of this award can be attributed to our strong business partners, customers and team members who have helped us achieve our high-standards for providing fresh and quality seafood.”

Oregon’s Most Admired Companies is an annual Portland Business Journal event and is one of the publication’s business programs aimed at recognizing Oregon’s leading businesses.
