Why Pacific Seafood
When Pacific Seafood was founded more than 75 years ago our goal was to bring the freshest, highest-quality seafood to our customers. Today our commitment remains unchanged and stronger than ever.
From our humble beginnings, we have grown to employ more than 3,000 team members, across 41 facilities, in 11 states, and many countries. We remain family-owned and operated, and are dedicated to satisfying our customers’ needs profitably by providing the healthiest seafood, and other premium proteins, on the planet.
Knowing who harvests our seafood, when they harvest it, and where it’s harvested, is the key to providing the highest-quality seafood to all of our customers. Our unique supply chain capabilities allow us to leverage our expertise in every aspect of the business including harvesting/fishing, processing, distribution, and aquaculture in order to provide our customers with the freshest, most sustainable, highest-quality products on the market.
When it comes to food safety, we know that not only is our reputation on the line but that of our customers as well. Our commitment is to provide the healthiest protein on the planet, and that starts with ensuring everything we provide is safe to eat.
From our in-house labs, portside inspections, and comprehensive product and process quality assurance, including QA evaluations every two hours, we meet and surpass state and federal industry standards. Many of our facilities are Safe Quality Food (SQF) and/or British Retail Consortium (BRC) certified which requires more stringent standards than the FDA’s Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) system. We have 11 GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) certified facilities that have to adhere to a rigorous, scientifically based method that recognizes competent food safety certification programs. Our highly trained and experienced QA teams are on site at all of our locations from our state-of-the-art processing facilities to our distribution centers, ensuring that all Pacific Seafood products are safe to eat.
