SERVICES & INFRASTRUCTURE
Atlantis Foods imports and processes a wide range of seafood products – raw material, value-added and ready-to-sell products, including hake, prawn, speciality seafood, crumbed and battered products, squid, pangasius and salmon. Our strategic partner factories specialise in wet fish filleting and portioning, crumbing and coating of various products, as well as smoked fish processing. With the factories on one premises, we can provide our world-class service to multiple markets, including Kosher and Halaal.
We are true innovators, and through our strategic partnership with the Atlantis factory and our longstanding suppliers, we are able to create innovative products and product lines. Our dedicated team of food technologists provides a comprehensive in-house service – from product development, through production, to final packed product. We already pack in private labels for four of South Africa’s top retailer groups and other key customers – and we can do the same for you.
Our own cold store space amounts to around 8 500 pallet spaces, and to increase our supply chain efficiencies, we also make use of third-party cold stores across South Africa. The steady expansion of both cold store space and diverse product range has enabled us to load trucks on a daily basis for nationwide distribution.
We have a large, well-established distribution network, managed by our specialist in-house logistics team. We currently distribute 44 000 tonnes of seafood every year, to national and regional centres, wholesalers, and directly to retail stores, allowing access to a wider range of customers.
Clearing and forwarding services are provided by our highly experienced in-house department, with extensive expertise in the cost-effective management of both exports and imports, as well as the various associated rebates and duties.
