US seafood processor Fortune International has opened a new warehouse and distribution facility in North Carolina, expanding the company’s reach into the growing southeast market.

But the company has plans for it to become a regional hub for the full Fortune Fish & Gourmet product range to retailers and foodservice customers in Washington DC, Baltimore, Charlotte, Raleigh, Durham, Atlanta, and later Tennessee and South Carolina.
