Bar Harbor Foods sits on a picturesque wharf on a beautiful sheltered cove in Downeast Maine. The cries of gulls echo across the water, the tide laps against pilings as the tie lines of the fishing boats stretch and creak in the sun and fog. This is where they make their premium specialty seafood – fresh off the docks of Maine.
Willard M. Look founded the original East Machias Canning Company (now Looks Gourmet Food Company) in 1917, on a wharf at the head of Holmes Bay. It was Willard Look who first developed the successful process for handling and canning crab meat and lobster, a process that they still use today.
While the business has expanded and changed over the past 85 years, Downeast Maine still inspires all their products. Their premium foods reflect naturally delicious New England cuisine and authentic Maine traditions. They like to keep things simple, from original recipes and fresh natural ingredients, to the appealing simplicity of their labels. Their specialty seafood and other fine foods are made in small batches and packed and canned mostly by hand, just like people on the coast of Maine have been doing for generations.
