This carefully conceived mix of mobile and fixed production assets gives us the ability to control our seafood products From the Source to the Plate®. From the fishermen, to the processors, to the plant managers, all Trident employees assume personal responsibility for Trident quality. We are constantly aware that the products we handle are not simply raw materials but a valuable food source for people around the world.
