2019 marks 20 years of SeafoodSource’s annual Top 25 North American Seafood Suppliers list. You read that right – since 1999, the editorial teams of SeafoodSource and its previous incarnation, SeaFood Business magazine, have been ranking the leading North American seafood suppliers based on reported sales figures. But, just as the seafood industry itself has changed tremendously over the past 20 years, so too must Top 25…
This year, we’re changing things up by celebrating the Top 25 seafood product innovations that have transformed the North American industry – and will continue to do so moving forward.
To compile this year’s list, the SeafoodSource editorial team conducted an extensive nomination and analysis process, taking into consideration new product announcements and launches that transpired within the North American market over the course of 2018 and 2019. We accounted for newsworthiness, industry accolades and recognition, brand creativity, trendiness, and more. This resulting list is one that, we feel, extensively catalogues the innovative practices driving seafood product development onward and upward, providing valuable insight into the inner creative workings of some of the industry’s most promising and prominent product engineers.
The “Top 25: Seafood Product Innovation” list is categorized alphabetically by supplier name, and is not ranked. Each profile gives an overview of the listed seafood supplier’s recent innovation history and the factors contributing to product inception and market reception. Several profiles also include in-depth insights from the seafood innovators themselves – a unique glimpse into the inner R&D workings of some of the industry’s most talented creatives.
