'Certified Kosher Tuna' will be produced at Star Kist Samoa's Atuu plant next month

Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — StarKist Samoa will be producing at the Satala plant next month, more than 100 tons of “certified kosher tuna” products for the Board of Jewish Education of Greater New York, dba The Jewish Education Project, which “is sending kosher supervisors to the South Pacific in order to provide U.S. government-subsidized tuna on the menu for approximately 50,000 Jewish students from low income families in New York,” according to the New York City based education group in a Tuesday news release.

The Jewish Education Project had first informed Samoa News early this month about the contract with StarKist Samoa, with an official statement to follow later with specific details, once all the information is confirmed.

Responding to Samoa News inquiries, StarKist Inc., corporate spokesperson Michelle Faist said a tour of the plant is scheduled for next week, at which time they will provide comments on this special project.

According to the Jewish Education Project news release, the StarKist plant in Pago Pago “will be producing 141 tons of tuna in only four days.”
