Marrying expertise with innovation, one of Handy Seafood’s main claims to fame is its creation of the world's first certified gluten-free crab cake. Sourcing seafood from the U.S. Atlantic and Thailand, Handy Seafood prides itself on maintaining close control of every aspect of the supply chain, from sourcing to production. As an HACCP certified processing facility, the business is inspected annually by an independent auditing firm ensuring that its products are produced safely and maintain the utmost quality.
