FCF is a privately-held company founded in 1972 out of the need for a company in Taiwan to handle the transactions between the supply and demand of seafood products. FCF's engagement in the trade of frozen tuna and operations of foreign fishing bases has resulted in it becoming one of the largest marine products trading companies globally.
In the course of our expansion, FCF has established over 30 subsidiaries, fishing bases and shipping agents throughout the world to handle the service needs of our customers. Within the Asia Pacific region, we have subsidiaries and offices in Japan, Thailand, Singapore, and China. Cargoes are exported to markets in the United States, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Philippines, Spain and Italy for products like frozen tuna for canning, deep frozen tuna for sashimi, and frozen squid. There are also currently ten fishing bases established worldwide: Cape Town in South Africa, Port Louis in the Indian Ocean; American Samoa and Fiji Islands in the South Pacific; Singapore in the Pacific; Las Palmas, Argentina, the Falkland Islands, and Uruguay in the Atlantic Ocean.
