The Freshest Seafood in the West
The Freshest Catch from Santa Monica Seafood Company
Santa Monica Seafood was officially founded in 1939, but the real story began in 1898 when John Deluca, who had only recently left his home in Naples, Italy put his roots down in the port city of San Pedro. Needing a way to support his growing family he looked to the sea. His hard work and respect for the ocean rubbed off on his family and before long his oldest son Jack was tagging along. Those days on the dock laid the groundwork for a family tradition that has lasted four generations.
Santa Monica Seafood is the first and only seafood company in the United States to achieve the internationally recognized FSSC 22000 and ISO 14001 certifications.
ISO 14001 recognizes that standards throughout their entire operation help continually reduce our environmental impact and FSSC 22000 certifies that their food safety practices are the strongest in the industry. It shows that they have greater traceability of their products, and that their systems and processes are independently verified against recognized standards of excellence.
They are committed to being the most trusted source of seafood in the industry and we are so honored to partner with Santa Monica Seafood, a company who raises the bar when it comes to freshness and quality.
