CEO's Walk The Talk

"..According to a 2004 study by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations ("FAO"), 3.6 billion people worldwide consume fish for at least 20% of their animal protein intake and global potential demand for fish is expected to grow by 50 million metric tons ("MT") from 133 million MT in 2001 to 183 million MT by 2015. However, it is highly improbable that this increase in potential demand could be totally satisfied through increases in the wild catch quantities and aquaculture production. This irreversible imbalance between demand and supply is reflected in the continual increase in the price level of fishery products and the shifting in the utilisation of under-utilised fish species from animal/agricultural feed to direct human consumption. Therefore, the Group's strategy is to continue widening our existing vertically integrated supply chain which starts from the harvesting of marine resources, to managing logistics, marketing and direct distribution of different fishery products harvested or sourced globally..."

Pacific Andes (Holdings) Limited
