FROM THE SEA
The world of seafood and sustainability continues to be one of the most dynamic parts of our food world. Our approach to seafood starts with direct sourcing form responsibly managed wild capture fisheries and sustainable, progressive aquaculturists. We serve as the link between our diverse supply base and well-informed, quality conscious customers. We seek to elevate the people, places & techniques – both modern and traditional – that influence better flavor and texture of fish & shellfish, and show respect for the resource and environment. Through exclusive supply partnerships with Organic Ocean Seafood®, Ocean Wise® and Marine Stewardship Council™, we connect customers with fisheries and farmers that share ethics and values and a commitment to better seafood. Whether it’s hand-selected boutique seafood for cutting edge chefs, the portion control needs of Canada’s most respected multi-unit restaurant companies, or private label custom cutting and packaging for leading retail brands, Macgregors delivers a robust, comprehensive approach to fit your business.
ORGANIC OCEAN SEAFOOD®
Delivering the finest wild-harvested, sustainably cultured, hand selected seafood to the world’s top chefs is only part of the story of Organic Ocean Seafood®. They are also a B-Corp company using the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.

We recognize our oceans are facing a number of threats: overfishing, climate change, pollution and urban development. That’s why we partner with the global conservation organization Ocean Wise® whose aim is to tackle these issues, through its engagement, research, and education. We make the commitment to clearly label all Ocean Wise® products so our customers can make sustainable choices. If you see the Ocean Wise® symbol next to a seafood item, you know that option is the best choice for the health of our oceans. The Ocean Wise® sustainable seafood program helps to ensure that ocean life will be abundant for generations to come.
