People want seafood sources that they can trust and rely on and that might mean re-thinking where they are getting their supply.
For one fish business this year, they ended up starting a new sort of service that was unexpected and came as a result of the changes related to COVID-19.
One seafood supplier from Philly faced a big problem when restaurants were forced to close and those restaurants weren't going to be buying the regular seafood that they would from him. Suddenly, he was left with an excess supply and had to come up with a solution. He eventually thought to offer the seafood to those who might be interested in the community, he told them when and where and people who wanted the free supply showed up.
Not only is this popular for seafood but now people are also looking to get it with things like unpasteurized milk, grass-fed beef box options, and other foods.
Seafood is more popular than ever with millions today. Farmers around the country have recently had to pivot their business to direct to consumer options in order to survive. And thanks to making those changes they've succeeded in continuing to bring that value to the market. From seafood suppliers to milk farmers and more, it's a great alternative option to continue to keep business going and might even turn out to be more successful than previous methods have been.
