Harlan understands the power and appeal of food that is both nutritious and delicious.  For over 30 years Harlan Foods has been committed to delivering best in class products.  We understand that consumer shopping and nutritional dynamics have shifted radically over the past decade with the growth in the population of younger millennial and Generation Z consumers whose lives and behaviors are very different than Gen X and Baby Boomers.  The Pandemic has further accelerated change.

In addition to clean label foods, shelf stable foods, breakfast foods, baked goods and desserts, Harlan provides responsible and sustainably sourced lobsters.

Lobster Fact versus Fiction

Typically, people think of crustaceans as high cholesterol foods. However, they also have a high nutritional value.  lobster is a lean protein source — it packs a lot of protein and minimal fat.  Lobsters are also an exceptional source of the trace elements copper and selenium.  While copper is involved in energy and DNA production, selenium acts as an anticancer agent and may protect against a number of chronic degenerative diseases.

Additionally lobster provides more protein per serving than the other crustaceans, they are all protein-rich foods. In fact, they all pack higher protein content than fin fish such as tuna, grouper and sword fish.
