We’ve been serving domestic and international wholesale customers for more than 30 years, and we’d love to work with you! See how our state-of-the-art facility, strategic location, commitment to quality and unsurpassed service add up to a great wholesale partnership.

Built to Deliver Large Wholesale Orders

Our certified, 15,000-square foot facility is fully equipped with the latest technology and a holding capacity of over 100,000 pounds of live lobster meaning we’ll always be able to meet your wholesale needs.

Because of our proximity to Boston, we’re able to ship lobsters twice daily. About 3 million pounds of lobster leave our facility each year, and our location allows us to provide the best possible product.

Our process from the wharfs to shipping is designed to ensure the lobsters you deliver are as fresh as the moment they were caught. We take fresh seriously, and maintain a high commitment to quality.

We like to think our service is unmatched in the industry. We’re available 24/7 to assist you throughout the shipping and delivery process, and you can count on us for quick and effective responses.

Our process and our facilities

Delivering only the freshest lobster every time begins the moment we bring the lobsters ashore. From our wharfs to our shipping practices, we’re built for freshness and equipped at each step to bring you only the best.

Maine Lobster Outlet works with lobstermen ranging from New Hampshire, all throughout Maine, and up to Nova Scotia, ensuring a constant supply of the best quality live lobster year-round, right from the wharfs. Our close relationships with harvesters means that we can provide the freshest selection of lobster, at any size, at any time.

Our modern HACCP-certified facility can accommodate over 100,000 pounds of live lobster at a time. Lobsters are kept healthy and vigorous in our holding tanks while they await packing and shipping. Our location, on Route 1 in York, Maine, sits off the water, meaning that we can maintain tight control over our water quality and ensure that our lobsters live in the healthiest habitat possible.

A unique feature, the spray room increases our holding capacity and enables more efficient packing. Lobster are stacked in plastic totes and submerged in cascading seawater pumped from above. When it is time to pack, the water is rapidly drained and recycled for later use.

Each lobster that leaves our building is inspected by hand and packed with care to ensure that they arrive at their destination fresh and ready to cook. Our crew is available to pack around-the-clock to accommodate flights leaving from airports in Boston or New York City.
