MARLBOROUGH, Mass., June 23 /PRNewswire/ – Kroger, one of the premier grocery organizations in the country, awarded Sea Star Seafood Corporation its coveted Seafood Supplier of the Year award. What makes this award very special is that it was presented to Sea Star on May 19, 2008 in Kroger’s 125th year in business and Sea Star’s 25th year.
Over the last century and a quarter, Kroger has become an American institution, with their own award winning business model. Kroger spans its store coverage from coast to coast with the acquisitions of many regional chains such as Ralph’s, Fred Meyer’s, QFC, Smith’s Dillon, Fry’s, King’s Sooper and Food 4 Less. For the last quarter century Sea Star has been supplying case-ready frozen fish to Kroger, a market leader in the frozen and refrigerated foods.
Recognizing a shared passion for quality products, Kroger and Sea Star have teamed up to provide the consumer with the best possible frozen seafood on the market today.
“The case-ready solution that we supply to Kroger includes many people in our organization who spend each business day working to exceed Kroger’s expectations. We’re proud of the tens of millions of packages sold through their distribution — Our facility and world-wide resource network is pleased to be part of the Kroger Corporate Brands team,” stated James R. Faro, President of Sea Star Seafood Corporation.
