The Buying Process

Stavis goes to great lengths to source the best seafood. We are a responsible importer and wholesaler and take a number of proactive steps to certify our vendors, including in-depth HACCP plant analysis and on-site facility and fishery visits around the world to ensure the quality, safety, and integrity of our seafood. 
Stavis requires detailed product specifications from its vendors. We view our vendors as partners and work with them, often in their native language, to ensure clear communication and expectations regarding quality, processing and packaging. Stavis conducts quality tests on its seafood in-house and utilizes certified, private lab testing of our seafood. This global sourcing outreach and attention to product integrity is unique in the New England seafood industry.
