About Us

Our Story


With 100 Years Behind Us…

In 1918, Joe Pucci and Son’s Seafoods was founded on a promise: to supply the best seafood in the best way. 

That promise reached a new meaning when Chris Lam bought the company in 2001 and expanded it beyond seafood. He knew he needed to rebrand, but wanted to keep the legacy of Joe Pucci, so he renamed the company Pucci Foods. 

In 2002, Chris moved Pucci Foods into our current Hayward facility, housed by the city’s largest solar panel. The company reached new heights in sustainability and innovation and was recognized by the City of Hayward with the Sustainability Award in 2015. Through continual innovative supply line upgrades, forward-thinking in health and sustainability, and expansion of our highly vetted supply network, Pucci Foods has since become one of the largest and most trusted seafood and specialty meat suppliers in the Bay Area.

…We’re Just Getting Started.

Our last 100 years were characterized by innovation in quality, sustainability, and service. We will continue to deliver the promise of Joe Pucci to our ever growing community. As we look more to local fishermen for our seafood, savings and efficiency will increase. As labor shortages rise, we will continue to develop our tray pack and processing program to make sure you can open the product and be ready to put it on the shelf or grill. Investing in health and sustainability will continue to be top of mind—only when we take care of the Earth can our industry continue to thrive.
