STAVIS SEAFOODS EXPANDS BOSTON FACILITIES

Boston-based Seafood Distributor Continues Recent Growth by Securing Additional Seaport Space 

Boston, MA

Stavis Seafoods, a leading international importer, exporter and distributor of fresh and frozen seafood, today announced it entered an agreement to take possession of facility space located at 310 Northern Avenue in Boston starting December of 2014. The additional space includes 22,000 square feet of a HACCP-certified, refrigerated warehouse that will allow Stavis Seafoods to expand its fresh processing and storage capabilities to better meet the needs of its growing customer base. This facilities addition is part of a larger expansion plan that will include new facilities in 2016.
 
“Stavis Seafoods continues to expand. In the new year, this additional space will help us better serve our customers and allow us to say ‘yes’ to more of their requests,” said Richard Stavis, CEO of Stavis Seafoods. “Over the past year we have expanded our global sourcing reach, added new fresh and frozen seafood items, and added to our facilities and plant capabilities. We are actively building the company to meet the future demands of our customers, as well as the industry as a whole. It is an important step in the overall growth plan of the company.”
 
Stavis Seafoods serves a wide range of seafood customers, including wholesale and distribution, food-service and restaurant, chefs and retail, and trading and national chain accounts. The additional facility will be up-and-running by January and provide the necessary space to enable growth in Stavis Seafoods’ quality assurance and fresh fish processing, which includes the addition of on-site processing of Faroe Islands Salmon. Stavis Seafoods’ current facilities in Boston and Miami will continue to handle customer orders and processing during and after this transition.
 
Stavis Seafoods has five unique brands. Foods From the Sea delivers unique dining experiences from around the world, while the Prince Edward brand focuses on providing premium shellfish items. The BOS’N brand delivers quality seafood without compromising freshness or taste while the Boston Pride brand provides convenience and value.
