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.
