Mike Frugé | Frugé Seafood

2016 Honoree

Frugé (pronounced FREW-JHAY) Seafood Company traces its roots back to a 20-acre crawfish farm started by Mike and Mark Frugé as a way to help pay for college. That farm has grown to 3,500 acres, but it’s still located right where it all started: Branch, Louisiana, right in the middle of “Cajun Country,” near Lafayette, in the south-central part of the state.

Over the years, Frugé Aquafarms, Inc. was created to broker and market live crawfish, the farm’s principle crop. Ultimately the Frugé family realized a specialized distribution arm was needed to coordinate moving this highly perishable product, and Frugé Seafood Company was born!

Today, Frugé Seafood has grown beyond just distributing crawfish into a local company with global reach.  Chefs for Farmers honors Mike Frugé for this growing his vision from fisherman to responsible businessman, committed to sustainable practices and quality product.
