The business has changed shape consistently over the years and Dan is looking ahead to more of the same.
“People say you can’t reinvent the wheel, but it is interesting how things change,” he explains. “We have seen shifts in the market. People are interested in sustainability and green technology and we are working to supply that demand.”
All Shores’ access to diverse seafood products has been a driving factor behind the business’ success. While the market for fish is thriving in the company’s geographic footprint, there are still challenges to business unique to All Shores and its competitors. In the seafood, regulation comes in at all angles.
“I tell people, only half joking, that I have more licenses and certificates of operation than most doctors,” Dan laughs. “We have to be covered with government regulations on a local, state and federal level. Our business is regulated by the FDA, the state, the county, OSHA and NOAA with a lot of requirement to meet.”
Being in the business his entire life, Dan takes all this work in stride. He understands that as part of the industry, these are just the rules of the game. Therefore, All Shores plays fair and square, in compliance wherever required. This level of compliance allows customers to rest assured that the company’s products are safe, fresh and sustainable. In the coming years, Dan and his team strive to meet regulations and exceed expectations while keeping All Shores Seafood on the cutting edge of the seafood business.
