Harbor Seafood partners with Carrington Foods
Harbor Seafood, Inc. of New Hyde Park, N.Y., has partnered with Carrington Foods, Inc. to be its dedicated sales and marketing arm for Carrington’s foodservice product lines.
Carrington Foods of Saraland, Ala., will manufacture some of Harbor Seafood, Inc.’s favorite value-added items. This partnership will help bring Harbor Seafood and Carrington Foods into a position to attract more customers and increase its market share by utilizing a nationwide broker network and foodservice team.
The dedicated foodservice division is staffed with seafood veterans, a sales force that has culinary expertise to help drive and maximize sales and support to the customer and end users. The partnership will also provide national warehousing to help eliminate minimum orders for Carrington’s customers.
Harbor, which specializes in pasteurized crabmeat, lobster, snow crab, king crab and surimi, is set to assume Carrington foodservice orders within the next few weeks.
“We are very excited to partner with Carrington Foods,” said Christian Limberg, president of Harbor Seafood. “Teaming up with Carrington provides us the capability to increase our value-added lines, expand on our USA manufacturing, which helps to eliminate long shipping times we experience from overseas production, and continue providing quality items to our customers.”
Harbor has been ranked as one of the Top 25 North American Seafood Companies by SeaFood Business magazine for the past 10 years.
