THE PRIME SHRIMP STORY
Our founder invented the first automated shrimp peeling machine over 70 years ago. Since then, we have been designing and building the equipment used to process seafood all over the world.
After decades of experience in the global seafood industry and years of research and development, we built our own state-of-the-art processing facility and reimagined the supply chain to do one thing: create the highest quality farm-raised shrimp product in the US.
“We didn’t even previously sell shrimp, but in just one day I knew we could make several dishes with Prime Shrimp. Over just a few days, we made four or five different meals with Prime Shrimp and everything tasted great. Our customers loved the grilled shrimp tacos.”
Alex Thompson, Chef at Harrison’s 1810
Prime Shrimp come from Ecuador, from Monterrey Bay aquarium seafood watch’s top-rated ponds. Where improved production technology creates a safer habitat for HAPPY shrimp, one that puts less stress on the environment and gives the shrimp freedom to develop better flavor and texture without the need for antibiotics, EVER!
Processed Hands-Free in the world's most advanced shrimp facility in South Louisiana.
Most farm-raised shrimp sold in the US is peeled and processed by hand before export. The hands-free automation in our domestic, state-of-the-art facility creates a new standard in uniformity, hygiene, quality control, and transparency.
Prime Shrimp are protected from abuse, mistreatment, and careless handling. Prime Shrimp is a Trustworth company, always transparent that brings consistent quality and quick response.
