A vision for growth is being realised
This article featured in EUROFISH Magazine 2 2020.
The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is famous for its vast oil reserves, a quarter of the world’s total, and for the dominance of its economy by petroleum and associated industries. However, growing diversiﬁcation of the Saudi economy has beneﬁted some sectors. In agriculture the Kingdom is now self-sufﬁcient in the production of milk, eggs, wheat, and other commodities. In addition, the country is a major exporter of fruits, vegetables, dairy products and ﬁsh and seafood to markets around the world.
Seamark supplies frozen fish and seafood sourced from different countries around the world to customers in continental Europe and the UK.
Seamark started life as a grocery store selling meat, vegetables, and fish to consumers in the UK in the mid-70s. Today it is a multinational company with operations in the UK, USA and Bangladesh, suppliers across Asia, and well-known product brands. Frozen warm water shrimp of various kinds – freshwater, black tiger, and vannamei – are the company’s speciality, but it also distributes squid, scallops, seafood mixes, pangasius, tilapia and seabass, to wholesalers, retailers, industry, as well as the food service sector.
