In 1971 CFE International was founded as Canadian Fish Exporters, Inc., a U.S. corporation. For over 45 years, we have focused on the production and import/export of salted dried fish. Our brands, Cristobal, Buena Ventura, Isla Brisa and BacalaRico are highly respected as premier quality salt fish and are known by name throughout the world. Historically we are also the world's largest distributor of genuine Gaspé Cure Cod. Our company operates in compliance with U.S. HACCP regulations for seafood products.
In 1996 we began a conscientious effort to expand our product line while maintaining our dedication to quality ethnic imported products that meet the needs of our Spanish, Caribbean, Italian, Portuguese, Greek, and varied ethnic consumers. More recently we have expanded our offerings to include frozen retail seafood which includes the award winning Cedar Bay line of Cedar Planked Atlantic Salmon and Buena Ventura Brand Seafood Medley. As a reflection of this renewed corporate identity, we have taken on the name of CFE International and we conduct business under this aegis.
CFE is an active sponsor of The Greater Boston Food Bank, Feeding South Florida, City Harvest of New York and Friends of Boston’s Homeless and their efforts to eliminate hunger. We are strongly committed to help feed the hungry and are proud to donate a portion of our profits to these organizations.
