Ensuring High-Quality Seafood: Tommy's Seafood Inc.

One of the primary challenges faced by the seafood industry is ensuring top-notch quality, from the catch to the delivery. However, Tommy's Seafood has succeeded in achieving this, providing the best seafood to restaurants, retailers, and distributors for over thirty years.

With so much experience in the industry, Tommy's Seafood is the most trusted seafood supplier in Louisiana. Given the amount of food waste and seafood spoilage among seafood suppliers, it's no surprise that Tommy's specialty freezing method is just one of the many reasons he stands out among the competition.

Freezing That Keeps Food Fresh

Tommy pioneered his own freezing process over 12 years ago. His method, now tried and true after a decade, consists of using CO2 freezing at -90° F. This keeps food fresher for longer than the industry's traditional freezing methods.

With seafood caught from Lake Pontchartrain, the Gulf Coast, and the Mississippi River, our seafood is frozen far faster than the industry standard. This ensures that the freshness and texture are maintained

Freezing That Keeps The Flavor

Another prevalent challenge in this industry is freezing seafood in a way that maintains its flavor. Maintaining flavor is a top priority for Tommy's Seafood, especially since we supply people with the most flavorful seafood Louisiana has to offer.

We offer a wide variety of the best wild-caught seafood in the surrounding waters, including our crowd favorites:

• Shrimp

• Blue Crab

• Oysters

• Crawfish

Our seafood is prepared, cleaned, peeled, shucked, and immediately frozen. It doesn't get any fresher or more convenient than Tommy's.

Working WITH You

Our own suppliers are some of the most capable fishermen in the state, and our customers trust that we'll bring them food with great flavor, a fresh quality, and a fair price. We want to be a part of building your restaurant or other business as you continue to grow. It's important to us to develop a good relationship with those we're supplying seafood to. That way we can personalize your experience with us to you and your needs.

Respect and Sustainability

Seafood is an incredibly important fixture of life in Louisiana. For us, this is more than a job, it's a way of life. We value what Mother Nature has given us, and that's why an effective freezing process is so important to us. With so much food waste and overfishing damaging our waters and sea life, we want to ensure that every ounce of seafood caught is treated with respect, kept fresh, and doesn't end up being tossed away.

To live sustainably is the Southern Way™. It's an expression of gratitude for the beautiful landscape we get to live on. Of course, love for seafood goes beyond Louisiana. Over 120,000,000 million people are dependant on fish for a portion of their income and diet. The importance that the ocean plays in on Earth can't be understated. That's why the destruction of their habitat, overfishing, and food waste have to be addressed.

Its been reported that for every pound of seafood brought to market, there are another 10 pounds of dead catch (spoiled fish) just thrown away. This is disrespectful to the creature and destructive for the planet. This is an industry challenge that Tommy's Seafood is fighting to change.
