Handy Seafood Celebrates 100th Season of Soft Shell Crab Processing

  (UNITED STATES, 10/5/2017)

In 1917, Handy started processing soft shell crabs from the Chesapeake Bay in Crisfield, Maryland. Now a century later, the family-owned business continues to process soft shell crabs along with other seafood items like oysters, crab cakes and crab meat.

“Crisfield is a community that treasures its history and Handy is proud to be a part of that. Handy has existed in 3 centuries on the Eastern Shore – the 1800’s, 1900’s and 2000’s and we are planning to be around for the 4th century as well”, said Terry Conway, Executive Director at Handy Seafood.

Handy Seafood, America’s oldest seafood processor, celebrated its 100th season of soft shell crab processing at their Crisfield, MD plant last week.

Handy celebrated this milestone with employees, watermen, council members and local businesses with a seafood fest to honor the support throughout the years. “The work ethic and ingenuity of the watermen and Handy employees are a testament to their hard work and dedication”, stated Terry Conway.

Specializing in the processing of the area’s best-known delicacy: soft shell crabs, Handy's product line also includes handmade crab cakes and seafood cakes, shrimp products, crab meat, oysters and artisanal fish.
