SeaPak. A trusted seafood leader since 1948.

When it comes to sourcing our shrimp and seafood and sustainability standards, we’re strict.

We take the stress out of dinner and don’t put it on the ocean. SeaPak sources only from suppliers who work to limit environmental impact and is committed to working exclusively with those who follow the most responsible harvesting practices.

GAA
Member

We were a Founding Member of the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA), an international, nonprofit trade association dedicated to advancing environmentally and socially responsible aquaculture and a safe supply of seafood to meet growing world food needs.

BAP
Certified

Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) certification standards require companies to comprehensively address environmental and social responsibility, animal welfare, food safety, and traceability throughout their operations. Currently, all of SeaPak’s aquaculture products come from BAP–certified sources.

Today, 100% of SeaPak’s aquaculture products are sourced from suppliers who are at least 2-star BAP-certified or higher. We are progressing toward a goal of procuring all products from suppliers who have achieved the top level of 4-star BAP certification.

BRC
Approved

85% of our shrimp products are processed in our plant in Brownsville, TX, which is certified by the British Retail Consortium (BRC), the global retail authority that establishes benchmarks for best quality and safety practices within the food industry. The remaining 15% of our product is produced in two other countries – Ecuador and Thailand – to maintain authenticity and quality.

MSC
Suppliers

SeaPak sources wild-caught seafood from suppliers certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) or equivalent. MSC is the world’s leading certification body for sustainable, wild-caught seafood. We support the nonprofit international organization’s goal “to transform the world’s seafood markets and promote sustainable seafood practices.”

 

DUE TO HIGH DEMAND FOR SEAFOOD WE RELY ON CERTIFIED SUSTAINABLE AQUACULTURE.

At SeaPak, about 50% of our seafood is wild-caught. We believe responsible aquaculture is a viable solution for ensuring that seafood can be readily and affordably enjoyed, while maintaining the wild seafood population levels and ecosystems in the ocean for years to come.
