We are R.I. Smith Lobster: capable, experienced and innovative.
The R.I. Smith story is unique. Through four generations, our family has guided a strong and successful southwest Nova Scotia seafood company. We’ve been in business since 1933 — that’s 83 years and counting. Our story is one of quality, longevity, tradition and expertise. We’re extremely proud of our history – and yet we like to think our best days remain ahead.
Longevity provides perspective. We understand the ingenuity and flexibility the seafood sector requires. Best of all, we are as passionate about the business today as we were in 1933.
Lobster specialists from start to finish
Our commitment to quality remains unchanged, but we now have the state-of-the-art facility, experienced team and seafood expertise to support us fully. It is amazing what can be accomplished in four generations with one highly-focused vision.
We are lobster specialists from start to finish. We provide short, medium and long-term storage capability. We serve clients in North America and around the globe on a year-round basis. Our iconic R.I. Smith brand logo, found on all of our lobster shipments, is known worldwide.
Our experience in the seafood sector is virtually unparalleled, yet we are continuously learning. This combination of traditional values and cutting-edge thinking means we can confidently provide lobster of the highest quality, harvested sustainably from the pristine waters of Canada’s North Atlantic.
We are R.I. Smith Lobster. Leaders in Lobster since 1933.
