Seven Seas International’s roots date back to 1880 when the Great Great Grand Mother of our current CEO started selling fish, using a push-cart, door to door in the Central part of The Netherlands. Now, four generations and 130 years later, the company has grown into an international conglomerate of seafood purchasing, processing and production companies stretching the globe, with high quality fish products being sold in European and US supermarkets.
Seven Seas supplies seafood on four continents and has sales offices in the USA, The Netherlands and Asia. Our strength lies in the vertical integration of the entire chain of custody in the fish industry, from farming and fishing to processing to sales. In addition to providing a high quality retail product, we also strive to be as sustainable and socially responsible as possible, while meeting the requirements of both MSC and ASC certifications.
Focus on Quality
Seven Seas’ quality control focus starts prior to the purchase of the seafood product from the farmer or fisherman. We supply seafood that is sustainable (MSC – Marine Stewardship Council certification for wild caught fish), Socially responsible (ASC – Aqua culture Stewardship Council certified or SA 8000 certified) and safe (IFS Grade A – International Food Safety Standard or BRC Higher Level – British Retail Consortium Standard). We rely on internationally agreed upon standards of Sustainability, Social Responsibility and Food Safety in order to offer a first class product to our retail customers.
In all cases we use our own local people for quality control checking. In addition to the onsite control, we also have all of our products tested by internationally certified laboratories to guarantee that our specifications are met.
