Gorton’s has been around since 1849, and they know a thing or two about fish sticks.
In 1849, the Gorton brothers started their first business as a small shop in Gloucester, Massachussetts.
They were known for their fresh and frozen seafood, which was some of the best in the area.
It wasn’t until 1969 that Gorton’s created its now iconic fish stick.
The breaded and fried sticks were originally sold in the frozen food section of grocery stores.
Today, Gorton’s is still a family-owned business, and they continue to produce high-quality seafood products.
