Blount Fine Foods

The genesis of Blount Fine foods took place just after the civil war when Blount family members came to work the rich oyster bead of Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay. In 1880, Eddie B. Blount started an oyster packing firm in West Barrington, Rhode Island. In the early 20th century, Byron Blount, Eddie’s son carried on the business while his brother Willi Blount opened an ice packing plant nearby. Francis “Nelson” Blount grew up working for his father Willis’s ice works, and built the business selling ice to the nearby Army camps that sprang up during World War II. Then, restless under his father’s wing, Nelson bought the 101-year-old Narragansett Oyster Company located on the Warren, Rhode Island waterfront. Pollution and weather had devastated the oyster beds so Nelson began supplying ocean quahogs—”black clams” recently discovered in large beds off of nearby Point Judith—to the military. In the post-war years the newly incorporated Blount Seafood Corporation shifted back to the more popular quahogs pulled by tongers from Narragansett Bay. Assisted by his uncle Byron and brother Luther, Nelson developed new machinery and grew his customer base. Although the company marketed a variety of seafood under its “Whitecap” and “Point Judith” labels, by the late 1940s the bulk of the business was in bay quahogs, and the largest customer by far was the Campbell Soup Company. In the 1950s and 1960s Blount Seafood prospered as a supplier to the nation’s largest food processor, becoming a mainstay of the regional economy and a favored local employer. Technological improvement was critical to the Campbell relationship; Blount’s block freezing capability assured Campbell a year-round clam meat supply. New, more efficient means of shucking clams and producing clam broth also benefitted Campbell and boosted Blount’s bottom line. We offer a wide selection of Blount soups.
