Wanchese has fishing in their blood. For generations, they have harvested seafood to feed not only their family, but also families around the world. Harvesting is unique to our family, as we control our product from ocean to plate.
What started out as one trawl boat has now grown to a thriving fleet of sixteen. The fleet harvests scallops, fish, and shrimp up and down the East Coast and scallops and crab in Argentina.
Wanchese Fish Company has three packing plants which unload the fresh catches from these boats. From here, the product is trucked either to fish markets or to the Suffolk processing plant. Our facilities help continue the tradition of developing new cost-effective and environmentally sensitive technologies to continually improve and add new value-added products to both our food service and retail lines.
Our Suffolk plant is BRC certified! BRC Global Standards is a leading safety and quality certification program, to guarantee the standardization of quality, safety and operational criteria and ensure that manufacturers fulfill their legal obligations and provide protection for the end consumer.
Wanchese is MSC Certified for our Patagonia scallops and Sea Scallops. Our facility is USDA inspected and we are in compliance with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), National Shellfish Sanitation Program (NSSP), National Marine Fisheries (NMFS), United States Department of Commerce (USDC), and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) programs. There is a quality assurance inspector on site to ensure a consistent supply of the finest seafood available.
We base our business on your satisfaction and understand that your repeated business is the key to our success. So, we guarantee our products. Ever since we began enjoying the best Wanchese seafood at our family’s table years ago, we have devoted our hands, boats, fish houses, and processing facility to proudly share the best of our harvest with other families and businesses worldwide.
