The Sustainable Choice


Consideration of social responsibilities is an important part of the River and Glen and parent company Local Abundance’s philosophy. Working and living conditions of laborers, the needs of rural communities, and consumer health and safety both in the present and the future are just some of the issues that the company focus on when distributing the highest quality, responsibly sourced seafood, game and meats on the market to the restaurants in Philadelphia and New York as well as to their local clientele.

Art of Food visits their distribution center in Bensalem, PA where seafood from Alaska, Maine, Long Island and New Jersey arrives fresh everyday, is quickly cleaned and packed in ice, to be delivered the same day to fine restaurants such as Lacroix at Rittenhouse Square, or to the homes of their growing client list through out Philadelphia and New Jersey.

The company aims to provide the public food that is 100% transparent and that comes with a story. The consumer is not only getting the freshest fish and organic meat in the market, but is also aware of who caught it, or raised it.
