Santa Monica Creates Shellfish Tag Boxes
Santa Monica Seafood recently created branded shellfish tag boxes for the harvest tags that come on all shellfish and must be kept by all restaurants and retailers.
The boxes are specifically made for Santa Monica Seafood clients and were created to align with the regulations mandated by the U.S. Department of Health and Food Administration. Federal law requires companies that supply shellfish to also provide tags and detailed information on when and where the shellfish was harvested in case of an illness.
“We developed the shellfish tag boxes for restaurants and chefs because they have to keep these tags for 90 days and usually when they get the tags they just throw them around and don’t know where they put them, but when they get questioned by the health department or the FDA, they start looking for them,” says Dave Little, director of sales and marketing at Santa Monica Seafoods.
Santa Monica Seafoods has offices in Santa Monica and Costa Mesa, Calif., and a distribution facility in Rancho Dominguez, Calif.
