What advantages does Ocean Cold provide to the Ocean Family?
Ocean Cold is distinctly unique in the frozen seafood industry. Through the use of our integrated operations we can provide our customers with true end to end solutions. Customers can purchase products processed by the Ocean Family and retain storage of those products inside Ocean Cold’s facilities until they need to take delivery. This can greatly reduce a customer’s freight, re-warehousing, and storage costs.
How much product is stored at Ocean Cold?
We are capable of storing 20-25 million pounds of product at any given time and we average 100 million pounds of inventory turn annually.
What percentage of Ocean Cold’s products are in the Ocean Family?
Currently approximately 75 percent of our storage is utilized by Ocean Gold Seafoods. The remainder is divided between a number of other seafood companies and local fishing vessels.
