Baton Rouge, LA – Jarvis Green, and his company, Oceans 97, www.oceans97.com http://www.oceans97.com , will debut his U.S. wild-caught shrimp on the QVC network on July 19th between 5:00 – 6:00 pm (EDT) For the first time, Green will offer his gourmet shrimp with a choice of four special sauces that he created: Garlic Butter, Asian Chimichurri, Cajun Curry and New Orleans Style BBQ.
Viewers will hear the story of how Green, a Louisiana native, turned in his jersey after a nine-year career in the NFL as an integral member of the New England Patriots defense, and built Oceans 97 from the ground up with the idea of providing his customers with amazing tasting, quality shrimp.
“Coming from Baton Rouge, I was fortunate to enjoy shrimp that would make my mouth water on a consistent basis,” Green said. “I want people to taste my shrimp and know that they are getting the best tasting shrimp on the planet. In addition, I feel even better knowing that my shrimp supports American fishermen.”
Green embarked on his career in the shrimp industry following a nine-year NFL career as a defensive lineman during which he was part of the New England Patriots Super Bowl XXXVIII and XXXIX winning teams. Green was originally drafted by the Patriots in the fourth round of the 2002 NFL Draft after a standout career at LSU.
Following his retirement from the NFL, he learned the shrimp business from the ground up, performing every possible task from de-heading shrimp to being a sales associate. He completed an internship with Atwells Restaurant Group before launching Oceans 97 in 2015. In just two years, Green has grown and expanded the company, which has now been featured at more than 50 food and beverage shows around the country.
In June 2017, Green was received a highly coveted invitation from Walmart to be one of 500 people who would participate in an open call to present their products and be considered as future vendors.
“I can’t wait to share my shrimp and my story with the QVC audience,” Green said. “Now, within a few minutes, they will be able to make a meal at home that they could expect if they were to go to a five-star restaurant.”
