From the hatchery through the nursery to ocean grow out, A.R.C. is committed to producing the finest market sized shellfish and delivering to our customers a delicious, nutritious and sustainable food source.
From Cape Cod to... around the world
From our 5000 sq. ft. warehouse nestled along Chase Garden Creek, millions of oysters and clams are shipped around the world each year.
Receiving, storing and shipping are all done within the HACCP Certified warehouse that includes a receiving area with automated sorting machines, wet storage, a temperature-controlled cooler, clean packing area and truck loading docks.
Shipping around the world through Boston
Daily truck routes to Boston’s Logan International Airport and national food distributors based in the Boston Seaport mean that our oysters and clams can be harvested from Cape Cod Bay today and served at a Seattle party within 48 hours.
Clams ready for wholesale are stored in 5 raceways within our warehouse. The raceways contain continuously flowing fresh sea water pulled directly from Cape Cod Bay. This system filters silt and sand from the clams resulting in a clean, ready-to-eat product.
All of our market shellfish are hand-packed to order and shipped in cooled containers. They are sized, packed in quantities to your specifications then shipped to our transportation hubs in refrigerated trucks.
Meeting and Surpassing Regulations
Local, state and national agencies protect the public with regulations on receiving, inventory control, storing, handling, packing and shipping of shellfish. A.R.C. is committed to the strict adherence to these regulations that are put in place for the public’s safety.
