Food Safety Expert Talks Global Seafood Supply
Bob LaFreniere has worked in product development and quality assurance in the seafood industry for 25 years. At Slade Gorton & Co., Inc., he manages a team that monitors the quality of fish received at the plant, which comes from all around the world. Bob runs a robust program that ensures all suppliers and vendors of Slade Gorton are vetted and adhere to rigorous food safety standards. He also ensures the seafood Slade Gorton processes and sends to customers is safe, tasty, and follows all regulations. Without seafood imports, which makes up the majority of the fish Slade Gorton processes, his job would be in jeopardy.
