The Massachusetts-based shellfish farm and distributor started in 1992 by Skip Bennett now sells over 11 million oysters annually through their e-commerce site, Duxbury retail store, and to 600 of the country’s best restaurants including five of their own properties in New England. Chris also chairs the company's non-profit arm, Island Creek Oysters Foundation, which funds development projects that deploy aquaculture as an affordable, environmentally sound source of protein and jobs.
