UNITED FISHING processes industrial fish into fishmeal and fish oil. Typical protein content of the fishmeal is above 65%. The fishmeal is of a good quality and well suited for feeds for ruminants. The fishmeal is packed in 50kg and sold under the UNITED FISHING ENTERPRISES (PTY) LTD brand.
Approximately 95% of the canned pilchard, canned pickled fish, canned curried fish and canned smoorsnoek are sold in the South African market.
The balance of the production is sold in the Namibian market. Certain quantities of canned pilchard are sold to retailers, i.e. Shoprite and Spar under their house brand names.
Most of the fishmeal and fish oil production is sold to the Chinese market.
UNITED FISHING sells canned fish products, frozen horse mackerel, frozen hake, fresh & frozen oysters as well as various other frozen sea products, fishmeal and fish oil in smaller quantities at its fish shop which is situated at the factory’s main gate. Sales are made to the public at large as well as to wholesalers and retailers at very competitive prices.
