Since its beginnings in New York City in 1930, Arista has been a family owned and operated business delivering quality products and dedicated personal service. Originally conceived as a specialty oils business (a business that has grown to include marine oils, natural vegetable oils, and industrial oils today), Arista’s first generation leaders established a foothold in the seafood industry in the 1960s. Under second generation leadership, Arista’s seafood division focused on the sourcing and distribution of farm-raised and wild-caught shrimp products from around the world. Today, with Arista’s third generation on board, Arista is an established industry leader in quality and service. Arista distributes over 20 million pounds of frozen seafood products annually to the most discerning customers.
