Our True Story

True Grade was founded in 2012 by Antonio (Tony) Malave and Chris Wheeler with the goal of bringing truth and exceptional quality back to the consumer. With their extensive experience in the seafood industry, they set out to build a network of reliable, efficient, and ethical fisheries around the world.

Starting as a small importer and exporter of fish and seafood products, Tony and Chris grew their vision for True Grade and saw the opportunity to apply their philosophy of transparency across various industries. Guided by their strong principles of integrity, honesty, and sustainability, they expanded True Grade’s product lines with the ambitious goal of feeding the world.

Today, True Grade offers a wide range of products, including commercial and food service items, as well as retail products such as bottled water, seafood, and various ethnic foods like Hispanic and Italian products.
