I&J is a vertically integrated South African Fishing company that owns and operates a fleet of modern and efficient stern trawlers, a land- based primary processing facility and a sophisticated value – added processing facility.
I&J has been a trusted name in seafood for over 100 years, and is proud to carry the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certifications on the Hake Species (Merluccius Paradoxus & Merluccius Capensis).
An enduring emphasis on quality has resulted in I&J securing accreditation from the world’s leading quality assurance organisations including BRC and IFS. The company’s fishing vessels and processing facilities are all EU accredited and fully HACCP compliant.
I&J have a productive abalone farm located along the coast of South Africa, about 200 kilometres south east of Cape Town. The farm has the capacity to produce more than 300 tonnes per annum with future projections well in excess of this volume. In addition to the farm, where primarily live abalone is produced, we have a factory which also produces secondary products such as canned, dried and frozen abalone. The sizeable harvest volume on a continuous basis and efficient shipment scheduling allow for all year round availability. Reared in the pure, clear coastal waters of South Africa and fed a diet of natural kelp, South African abalone, Haliotis Midae, is known for its exquisite taste, texture and colour.
