The Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative Welcomes Seattle Shrimp & Seafood Company to its Global Partnership

The Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative is pleased to announce that Seattle Shrimp & Seafood Company has joined the GSSI Global Partnership as a Funding Partner.

Seattle Shrimp & Seafood Company is a global supplier of shrimp and shellfish. Seattle Shrimp & Seafood Company works with GSSI recognized schemes BAP and MSC.

“Seattle Shrimp & Seafood Company is proud to be partnering with the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative and its supporters as an acting member and Funding Partner. We are extremely excited for the opportunity to collaborate with organizations from industry and NGO sectors that are committed to the long-term preservation, sustainability and growth of global fisheries,” said Atsushige Amano, President of Seattle Shrimp & Seafood.


Seattle Shrimp & Seafood was built upon the well-established strength of two industry-leading seafood sourcing, production and sales companies: Hanwa of Japan and E&E Foods of Seattle, Washington. Combining their resources and experience, these two companies created Seattle Shrimp & Seafood as a joint venture in 2006. In July of 2016 Hanwa America acquired E&E Food’s interest in Seattle Shrimp & Seafood Company making us a wholly owned subsidiary of the Hanwa Group. Seattle Shrimp & Seafood offers both the “big buy” savings you need and the “local supplier” service you want. By leveraging our worldwide sourcing network and extensive industry knowledge, we continuously supply quality shrimp, shellfish, finfish and sushi items to large volume retail and food service chains, club warehouse outlets, broadline distributors and local distributors. Utilizing Hanwa’s global supplier network and local buyers, we provide our Customers the highest standard of quality, value and service. Through Hanwa, Seattle Shrimp & Seafood has offices and inspectors throughout every major production region. The majority of the seafood we handle has been purchased by our own staff after inspection at farms or production sites. This also ensures that our product is coming from responsibly managed fisheries and companies that are socially responsible. For more information, please visit
