Founded in 1971, Motivatit Seafoods is a leader in oyster farming and processing. We offer a full line of fresh and frozen oysters as well as custom packaging. The brands we have developed guarantee the quality and consistency you deserve and our leadership team is dedicated to serve you fully and courteously.
Our patriarch, Ernest Voisin, together with his twin sons Michael and Steven Voisin, delivered on their initial plans to get involved in the oyster industry and make a difference. Our family business was built on the core principles of hard work, innovation, reliability and integrity. We believe in being there for our customers through thick and thin.
Since the 1700’s, when the first Voisin arrived in Louisiana from France, a deep respect for the environment was established and passed down from generation to generation. Our ancestors first settled in southern Terrebonne Parish. They learned quickly how to live off the land and soon realized how plentiful yet unforgiving this area can be. Even though the pristine swamps and marshlands presented challenges for our forefathers, they recognized how lush, rich and abundant coastal Louisiana truly is.
The Voisin’s have been harvesting, processing and delivering their oyster products to a variety of markets throughout the years. Their oysters are fed by some of the healthiest fresh water wetlands in the world and are salted to perfection by the Gulf of Mexico. When you are in the New Orleans area, we invite you to come down to Houma (approximately an hours drive) and let us feed you oysters off the very reefs our foregoers have harvested from for nearly 250 years.
