Seafood With Integrity
We understand the integrity of the seafood industry is dependent on the industry itself, which is why we collaborate with the Marine Stewardship Council, The British Retail Consortium and we are a founding member of the American Scallop Association. Our facilities are certified by the U.S. Department of Commerce Inspection Program for packing USDC Grade A fresh and frozen scallops. In 2019, we constructed a new state-of-the-art 38,000 square foot processing and freezing facility. The new facility has a 21,600 square foot holding freezer that holds 5.5 million pounds of scallops. The new facility enables us to procure and freeze 3 times more scallops than our original facilities which provides us with inventory levels for optimal pricing.
As global stewards of sustainability seafood, we know that fish and shellfish are renewable resources that can reproduce and replenish their populations naturally. Because of this, the industry can sustainably harvest seafood within certain limits without depleting the resource with proper management. With good management systems in place, as an industry we can make sure we have sustainable populations of seafood for generations to come.
That’s why when we purchase fish and shellfish from around the globe, we are purchasing from fisheries which are responsibly harvested using sustainable practices that contribute to the economic and social wellbeing of the planet.
Our unique value chain capabilities allows us to leverage our expertise in every aspect of our business in order to deliver our customers the highest-quality, responsibly harvested seafood in the market today.
We deliver Seafood With Integrity.
