Fresh Fish in Philly

In September of 1995, E. Frank Hopkins Co., Inc. was granted HACCP certification under the United States Department of Commerce. We were one of the first companies in this country to operate under HACCP guidelines. Since certification we continue to work closely with the United States FDA to continually improve both the quality and wholesomeness of all seafood products sold to consumers.

Today, we source commercially imported species from all major domestic and international ports. Employing over 50 seafood specialists and support personnel, we handle all forms of seafood, including fresh, frozen, smoked and pasteurized products.

Safety Compliance

We take food safety seriously, and we are HACCP Certified (#14806149402). This certification ensures that we are compliant in seafood and general food safety management and product quality, and demonstrates our commitment to safety and hygiene. View our HACCP Certificate of Compliance (pdf).
