Our founder, Joseph P. Landry, in 1948, established Cape Bald Packers. The original lobster plant employed 30 people. Fast-forwarding to the year 2000, Cape Bald Packers currently utilizes 5 Atlantic coast facilities, employing over 1000 people. The plants process lobsters, mussels and three species of crab. The growth, success and diversity of Cape Bald Packers has evolved in stages. Joseph Landry’s original philosophy of business has maintained throughout. “If you make a top quality product, charge a fair price and above all maintain integrity, business will come.”

In the early 1990’s, Joe felt it was time for a change in the business philosophy. He wanted to separate his company from the mainstream practices of the maritime lobster and crab industries. Cape Bald Packers plants were renovated. Production methods were altered to reflect the evolving changes in customer sensibilities toward product quality. A new top shelf brand, Downeast, was created. New and direct distribution channels were sought after and accomplished. Species diversification became a goal. It was quickly achieved. As Joe Landry’s visions became realities, his company prospered. The resulting growth and stability has placed Cape Bald Packers in a position of industry significance and leadership. Appropriately, and justifiability, the “Downeast label” has been synonymous with the finest quality lobster and crab products in the world.
