About Us

Sea Snack Foods, Inc. has been in business for more than 60 years. Our business was founded in 1954 by Arthur Pearlstein. It's still owned and operated by the same family.


A Company With a Vision

Originally, the company's main business was producing a quality shrimp cocktail in a reusable glass jar. This product was sold in the deli cases of local supermarkets. This was the mainstay of the business until the early 1960s, when Mr. Pearlstein had a vision. He wanted to become the leading supplier of fresh, cooked shrimp for local, upscale, independent supermarkets and hotels, as well as for casinos in Las Vegas, Nevada. We did very well in this marketplace.

Ongoing Success

Our company has enjoyed great success and is well-known for superior quality and originality. In 1970, we became one of the few companies offering Individually Quick-Frozen (IQF) cooked shrimp for distribution to foodservice and retail accounts. Today, Sea Snack Foods is one of a few remaining shrimp cookers in the United States. All of our experience is put to work for you when you call us for a custom order.
