Seafood Processing Company to Expand in Georgia

Aug. 15, 2013
The new processing facility will create 175 jobs and is a $41 million investment.

Carroll County, Georgia will be the new home to Trident Seafoods, the largest vertically integrated seafood harvesting and processing company in North America.

The new seafood processing facility will create 175 jobs and is a $41 million investment, the company announced yesterday.  

“Trident is a family-owned business,” said Joe Bundrant, executive vice president of Trident Seafoods Corp. “It feels good to be welcome here. We care about people, and we care about the communities that support us. This is a great match. We’re proud to be your new neighbor and your new partner in a bright tomorrow.” 

The Carroll County processing facility will be located in a 104,000-square-foot building that formerly housed a food production facility for Chiquita.

Utilizing frozen fish fillets and fillet blocks as raw material, the facility will add value by producing portion-controlled frozen seafood products, as well as a diverse variety of battered, glazed, breaded, fryer- and oven-ready frozen items.

“The food processing industry is our largest manufacturing sector, and the addition of Trident to our company roster is a big win for the state,” said the Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Chris Cummiskey
