Blue Star Foods Corp. recently signed a two-year bid award purchase agreement with Sysco Corp.

The Bid Award Purchase Agreement is effective immediately and is for purchase of Blue Star’s brands, such as Blue Star, Pacifika and Good Stuff.

“Market demand is always shifting its dynamics. We worked with Sysco’s strategic sourcing team in achieving a flexible-pricing model adjusting to trends in the fast pacing ‘center of the plate’ seafood category,” said John Keeler, CEO of Blue Star Foods.

“Having worked in the foodservice industry for the last 28 years, I have never seen such a thoughtful and data driven approach from our foodservice distributors partners as Sysco’s strategic sourcing team did. I feel confident that it will result in an increase of market share in our category in 2024. We work rigorously to be known as a trusted brand and reliable partner. I am humble in the trust that a company as well-known as Sysco has placed in us.”

In September 2022, Blue Star Foods signed a one-year extension to its supply contract with Sysco Corp. This new Bid Award Purchase Agreement continues the long-standing partnership the two companies have had for several years.
