Spreading the great taste of Maine Lobster across the world has been the Maine mission for over a century. Today, the Maine Lobster industry not only ships live products globally, but also a bevy of easy to use, fresh and flavorful frozen lobster products. From meat to tails to ready-to-eat products, the industry has made significant strides in the processing sector, ensuring that any lobster product you invest in arrives at your doorstep with the same delicate flavor and texture we know and love here in Maine.

Tune in below to watch the live Seafood Source webinar, originally broadcast on November 6, 2019, as Maine Lobster industry veterans John Norton, Founder and President of Cozy Harbor Seafood, and Hugh Reynolds, owner of Greenhead Lobster, highlight a variety of classic, new and emerging lobster products on the market, focusing on the industry’s processing evolution from canning and brining to the state-of-the-art nitrogen and high-pressure processing methods employed today.
