Seafood Processor Opens N.C. Production Facility
RC Creations, LLC, a Lyndhurst, N.J.-based seafood processor, will establish a new facility in Raleigh, N.C., creating 120 new jobs and investing more than $25 million by the end of 2017.
The Currie production facility will import fresh and frozen seafood from around the world to create ready-to-eat seafood products that are packaged and shipped domestically and internationally. The facility will utilize state-of-the-art technologies to continue to meet and exceed current Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requirements.

We look forward to providing a safe, reliable and attractive workplace for the residents of Pender County,” says Richard Nordt, vice president of manufacturing.
RC Creations is a division of Acme Smoked Fish Corp., based in New York. The 4-generation, family-owned business has produced value-added seafood products for more than 75 years.
