Who We Are Changing Antiquated Ideas & Methods of Transporting Food

Chefs Trading® is an independently owned and operated trading company dedicated to changing the antiquated ideas and the methods of transporting food. Our goal is to ensure everyone, regardless of location, can have access to the freshest food harvested and to help well-managed fisheries become more sustainable. Our unique model is built on a foundation of honesty and quality, ensuring all our suppliers have been thoroughly vetted, the products have been processed and packaged according to the highest of regulatory standards, and our logistics have been tailored to meet your specific needs and requirements.


Chefs Trading is the brainchild of two professional chefs driven by a passion for food and an unyielding commitment to quality. With 3 culinary degrees, more than 50 years' combined experience and a front-row seat to the food services industry, we know first-hand that where food comes from is just as important as how it’s prepared.
