The factory today
Atlantis Seafood Products started with one department which processed various frozen fish species into portions and fillets, the staff compliment in the factory at the time was 54 employees.
Since then, Atlantis Seafood Products has been purpose built to produce a wide variety of fish products for the retail and food service market. The business has invested in specializsed machinery and therefore can produce products that are either bulk packed or packaged for the retail, wholesale and food service sector. As customer demands grew and long-term relationships were formed, the production requirements naturally increased and more factories was established to include a crumbing, smoking and drying capabilities.
Today the factory employs over 700 staff members, most which were previously disadvantaged and reside in the Atlantis area. With a predominantly female workforce many of the factory workers are single mothers who support their extended families. We are proud to say that at least 50% of the workforce has been with the company longer than 5 years. The skill development of the Atlantis Seafood Products workforce has been prioritized and aligns with the stakeholder’s ideals of the future development and transformation of its employees.
