Lagniappe (Lan-yap) Foods is a value-added seafood manufacturer and distributor. Founded in 1985 as a Louisiana specialty foods wholesaler to the Tri-state area, Lagniappe has stood the test of time in a demanding marketplace. Today we service a range of grocers and specialty food stores across multiple product lines. At the moment we do not sell direct to consumer, but please send us a message and we can help you locate your closest retailer.


Family owned since its inception, the company maintains strong values in cooperation and loyalty. Our sustainably resourced ingredients, small batch recipes, and sense for flavor are the cornerstones of our business. All seafood sourcing and product recipes are still handled by the company’s founder, Tom Dowd.
