Atlantis Foods is the largest independent frozen seafood import, trading and distribution company in South Africa servicing leading wholesalers, retailers and food service companies.

It also benefits from a strategic partnership with the third largest seafood processing factory in South Africa, facilitating the filleting, portioning, crumbing, coating and smoking of seafood products.

The business (previously known as Supapackers) was founded fifteen years ago as a seafood processing and trading operation. Lonrho’s original investment in 2015 occurred through the sale and merger of Lonrho’s seafood retail business Oceanfresh and wholesale trading business Fish On Line to Atlantis Foods. Since then the business has acquired Breco Seafoods, a highly successful trading competitor in 2017.
