Handy Seafood. Born on the Chesapeake. Trusted Worldwide.

About the Brand: Handy Seafood

Established in 1894, Handy is America’s oldest seafood processor. The company has always operated from the beautiful shores of Crisfield, Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, and they wouldn’t have it any other way. Known for being home to the world’s best soft shell crabs, crab meat and crab cakes, Crisfield was once a small village. When the potential for seafood was discovered, the quiet fishing town quickly grew and became known as the “Seafood Capital of the World.” With over 125 years in the industry, Handy is proud to have traditions spanning generations of watermen and families withstanding the test of time.

Terry Conway grew a Mid-Atlantic processor to an international seafood company by introducing delicious crab products to seven foreign countries. Today, Terry’s oldest son Todd continues the growth of the family business as the leading processor of delicious seafood products. From that first small plant in Crisfield to their current global presence, Handy continues to be a family-owned and operated company with a focus on great tasting, unique, and convenient seafood.
