Global Sourcing

Global Manpower

Successfully fulfilling ongoing, large volume shrimp and shellfish contracts requires a dependable global operation. By leveraging Hanwa’s extensive, well-established sourcing network, Seattle Shrimp & Seafood has more onsite buyers and inspectors in every major production region than any of our competitors. But beyond sheer numbers, Hanwa empowers each staff member to make quick decisions to buy at the catch site based on their knowledge of the market. This streamlined approach, combined with Hanwa’s massive trading volume, allows Seattle Shrimp & Seafood to consistently offer the highest quality product at the best value.
