For over five generations, our family has been in the business of seafood. Our journey began when Eddie B. Blount started an oyster packing firm in Barrington, RI in 1880. By 1946, Eddie’s grandson, Nelson, pioneered the transition to clams, establishing Blount Seafood’s home on the historic Warren, RI waterfront.

Today, Nelson’s grandson, F. Nelson “Todd” Blount, leads Blount Fine Foods as the largest fresh soup manufacturer in the country. Always keeping our local seafood roots close to our heart, we now have three clam shacks through RI, sharing our award-winning family recipes with our neighbors throughout the region. Each of our seafood soups is made on the waterfront in Warren, RI at our “World Chowder Headquarters,” brimming with New England flavor.
