Seafood wholesaler and distributor True World Foods of Rockleigh, N.J., yesterday announced that 16 of its locations have achieved U.S. Grade A certification from the U.S. Department of Commerce for its fresh and frozen tuna and salmon products.

The rest of the company's U.S. locations are working to achieve the status by the end of the year.

"We feel strongly that earning the U.S. Grade A mark is very important, since it signifies that our products meet the highest quality established by applicable U.S. Grade standards as determined by the USDC," says Debbie Pike, True World spokesperson. "We are very proud that we can designate our tuna and salmon products as U.S. Grade A and that our customers can feel confident knowing that they are receiving products that are processed using the strictest standards of cleanliness, safety and quality control."

True World Foods has more than two dozen sales and distribution centers in North America, distributing tuna and a full line of seafood products to more than 8,000 restaurants, hotels and other foodservice customers.
