Ocean Garden Products, a San Diego-based importer of Mexican shrimp, celebrated its 50th anniversary at the International Boston Seafood Show, which ended March 13.
The company was born in 1957 when a group of shrimpers from Sonora, Mexico, joined forces to distribute their fish in this country.
In 2006, Ocean Garden was taken private and sold to a group of Mexican agribusinesses for $25 million. At the time, its annual revenue was $250 million.
While the company changed hands, it still maintains its corporate offices in Kearny Mesa.
