Van de Kamp's Seafood started in 1915 with a potato chip stand. In 1930, the business expanded into restaurants featuring batter-fried halibut. From there the company started a frozen fish line focused on crunchy fish fillets and fish sticks. Today its fish sticks are made from a 100 percent whole white Alaskan pollock fish fillet covered in a wheat flour breading. To ensure quality and food safety, Van de Kamp's offers specific cooking instructions for its product. When followed correctly, the fish sticks should come out crisp and cooked through.
