• ABOUT THE
    SEA HARVEST GROUP

WHO WE ARE

The Sea Harvest Group is a leading seafood, aquaculture, agri-processing and branded fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) business with a global footprint. Sea Harvest was established in 1964 and has developed a strong reputation and solid long-term relationships with its geographically diverse international customer base.

The Group harvests wild-caught seafood off the coasts of South Africa, Mozambique and Australia and processes the catch into a variety of chilled and frozen premium seafood products. Through Sea Harvest Aquaculture, we farm a variety of fish and shellfish species. Our varied wild-caught and farmed products are then packed and marketed to a local and international customer base. Our agri-processing business produces value-added dairy products, such as cheese, butter and powders, for the South African retail and foodservice markets.

Sea Harvest Group is a Level 1 contributor in terms of the South African Department of Trade and Industry’s broad-based black economic empowerment (BBBEE) scorecard, as a result of its commitment to the economic and social transformation of South Africa, especially within the local communities in which it operates. In 2018, the Group was rated as the “Most Empowered Company” in the fishing and food category on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in a special report issued by a large media publication.

OUR HISTORY

OUR COMMITMENT TO SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS AND ETHICAL BUSINESS PRACTICES

Our pledge to fair labour practices, social upliftment, employment equity and well-being, transformation and environmentally sustainable and ethical business practices will remain unwavering in all we do. As we evolve as a business in pursuit of our true purpose, one of our primary drivers is to continually improve on our transformation principles and, more importantly, to play an active role in empowering marginalised and disadvantaged groups and individuals.
