CSS Seafood Difference
We search the world for the highest quality seafood available. All of the products sold by Certified Steak and Seafood come from certified sources which are inspected on a regular basis. To this end—and built in to our name—is a unique, third-party provided certification that we include with each purchase to ensure freshness and safety. To our knowledge, we are the first and only retailer in our industry to do this.
Our fin fish and shellfish undergo tests to measure mercury, histamines, and other trace elements particular to each type of species and geographic region of origin. On premise inspectors from the U.S. Department of Commerce oversee all operations involved in food handling, packaging, plant cleanliness and safety. We use a multitude of rigorous food safety processes and programs throughout our plants to ensure that we always provide safe wholesome foods. These processes follow the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) and the BAP (Best Aquaculture Practices) Seafood Processing Standards.
Certified Steak and Seafood also employs a professionally-trained chef for the test kitchens who oversees the production of our custom-made fish products and ensures their top-quality flavor. Our production kitchens meet the same rigorous and demanding standards as our plant. Our customers can trust that our seafood products are the best available.
