Seawind Foods, formerly Seawind International
Steve Cade started Seawind Foods over 25 years ago to meet consumer demands for spices, herbs, dried fruits, and dehydrated vegetables. Using his industry connections and experience as a business owner, Steve assembled a dedicated team of professionals, and from inception, the company has increased revenues and remained profitable for over 90 straight quarters.
Even before an interest in natural foods swept the nation, Seawind was a leading natural food supplier with an eye towards sustainability and healthy, nutritious products. In the late 2000’s, Seawind introduced a line of natural dried tropical fruits that remain the only supermarket products not stored in preservatives during the production process. This keen insight into consumer demand has allowed the company to maintain a high level of success throughout the years.
In December 2013, Steve Cade teamed up with a business partner to bring in a new management team and focus on more rapidly growing the business and its profitability. Since that time, revenues, gross profit, and adjusted EBITDA have all accelerated.
For 2016, the company projects a 27% increase in its top line as the company expands with major brands of chocolate, natural fruit bar, and natural food markets while continuing to grow market share in its core food ingredient and seasoning business.
Assembled by Cade & Company, its strong leadership team has established a record of steady, disciplined growth that will allow the company to expand into new markets in the coming years.
