Gillis Seafood was established in 1946 by Donald B. Gillis in the seaside town of North Sydney, NS. Over the years, Gillis Seafood has expanded from one half ton truck and small garage, to a fleet of refrigerated delivery trucks and a modern, federally inspected (CFIA) distribution centre. They have built strong relationships with seafood processing companies throughout Eastern Canada and the United States and have created a strong supply chain to source a wide variety of the freshest seafood daily, to meet their customer ‘s needs.
