Seafood processor eyes city move

Mazzetta Company would bring 225 jobs to Blackburn Park site


That has led Mayor Carolyn Kirk to ask the City Council for two actions at Tuesday night’s regular meeting: to approve the TIF agreement the city is offering Mazzetta and extend the Blackburn Industrial Park EOA, but only for the prospective Mazzetta site at 21-29 Great Republic Ave., for 12 years.

“They’re making an investment in Gloucester, and we want to make an investment in them,” Duggan said.

Mazzetta has other New England facilities, including a freezer warehouse in Londonderry, N.H., and the Atwood Lobster Co. in Spruce Head, Maine, which it purchased in May 2011.

The company is a far-flung international importer of various frozen seafoods, which it markets in its SEAMAZZ line. That line includes various species of fish, as well as shrimp, crabs and mussels. It offers lobster tails from its Maine producer, as well as from New Zealand, Canada, Brazil, the Caribbean, Australia, South Africa and Tristen.
