NFI Welcomes Troy Turkin of Supreme Crab and Seafood to Board of Directors
Seafood veteran brings sustainability pedigree and global sourcing perspective
Washington, D.C. – January 31, 2022 – The National Fisheries Institute (NFI) is pleased to welcome Troy Turkin, chief operating officer of Supreme Crab & Seafood, based in Weston, Florida, to its Board of Directors. Turkin previously served on the Board from 2012 to 2015.
With nearly two decades in seafood marketing, sales and operations, Turkin is well-versed in international and domestic business models. He’s been involved in all facets of the supply chain that deliver products to distributors, restaurant chains, manufacturers and retailers in the U.S.
“The seafood supply chain is a highly complex and integrated system, and relies on global partners to bring seafood to American plates,” said NFI President John Connelly. “At a time when seafood consumption is at unprecedented levels, it’s important to have members with unique, operational business expertise like Troy on the Board.”
Since its inception in 2009 Supreme Crab & Seafood has evolved into a vertically integrated crabmeat and seafood importer. Currently, their group is one of the largest Blue Swimming Crab processors in Indonesia, with multiple processing plants and investments in local fishing operations.
“For the last two years, I’ve served on the NFI’s Crab Council’s Executive Committee where we tackle sourcing and sustainability issues for one of the most complex fisheries in the world,” said Turkin. “I look forward to continuing my collaboration with NFI on industry priorities as a member of the Board of Directors.”
NFI elects new board members annually to three-year terms.
