What We Do
Tampa Maid Foods is in the business of sourcing, processing and marketing quality value-added food products from around the world to the foodservice and retail markets. Tampa Maid’s primary expertise is in coated products. We have world-class product development, as well as processing capabilities to coat seafood and farm-fresh products utilizing the full spectrum of available coating formulas. From bread crumbs and cracker meals, flours and batters as well as flavor-infused glazes, Tampa Maid specializes in making products that taste great and are easy to prepare.
Our U.S. based, state-of-the-art facility is dedicated to processing, product development and storage. We subscribe to several inspection services such as the A.I.B. (American Institute of Baking) and B.R.C. (British Retail Consortium) which help insure our adherence to high standards of good manufacturing practices, sanitation and overall food safety.
We source both commodity and value-added seafood products from our supplier partners world-wide. We require our suppliers to meet the same stringent standards for food quality and product safety that we have set for our own manufacturing facilities. In addition to our specifications, standards and inspections, these supplier facilities must also meet the requirements of recognized third party food-safety audits.
The health of our oceans is of great importance to Tampa Maid. Ocean Trust is recognized as a premier organization for understanding, maintaining and restoring the world’s fisheries. As a strong supporter of Ocean Trust, we are working to better understand the status of our source fisheries and ways to insure the protection and sustainability of the ocean-caught and aquaculture seafood we process and market to the industry. Sustainability of our food supply requires the preservation of natural resources of wild caught species, and ensuring that aquaculture can indefinitely continue production without harm to the environment and its ecosystems. Tampa Maid has partnered with suppliers and organizations with these same concerns and goals in mind.
