“Unless you catch your own, there is no better way to sample exquisitely fresh seafood than ordering from Browne Trading.”  -New York Times

Located in the heart of Portland, Maine’s Commercial Fishing Community, Browne Trading was established in 1991 by renowned seafood epicure Rod Browne Mitchell. Continuing his family’s long tradition in the seafood trade, Browne Trading is nationally renowned for sourcing the ultimate in pristine quality, fresh seafood from our own Maine waters to those across the world. Many of today’s seafood menu items were first introduced to the domestic market by Browne Trading, and we were industry pioneers in the perfection of overnight delivery of fresh seafood.

Browne Trading Company also has a long legacy as one of the premier providers of the finest caviar in the United States. As the market for wild Caspian caviar became more and more restrictive due to the endangerment of overfishing of caviar producing sturgeon, Browne Trading was among the first in the U.S. who turned to resourcing farm raised caviar options. We are now a leading supplier of the world’s finest farm raised caviars, offering several sustainable varieties of the best quality cultured caviars. Browne Trading Caviars can be found in America’s elite restaurants and through many national food purveyors of distinction.

Our Portland Facility includes an on premises boutique smokehouse where we handcraft our own smoked salmon, fish and select shellfish. Browne Trading’s Smokemaster, using only the highest quality fresh fish and shellfish cured in a brine of all natural ingredients which are free of chemicals, dyes, and preservatives, has taken this age-old food preservation method and turned it into an art form. Innovative ideas and use of unique flavor blends result in the most delicate and delicious smoked seafood available in the U.S.

Many of the most prestigious and talented chefs and restaurants throughout the nation rely on our products every day. Browne Trading Company not only provides seafood to the finest restaurants, we proudly offer all our products via overnight delivery to home kitchens throughout the U.S.

Browne Trading Company of Portland, Maine is the premier provider of fresh and smoked seafoods and caviars, shipping via overnight delivery.
