More than 65% of the revenue is derived from foreign sales. The Company has well established brands that have been in the market for many years. In the current markets where the products are for sale, demand currently exceeds supply. South African fish species are a sought after buy, globally due to their quality, taste and texture and are rated amongst the best in the world when compared to the Company’s global competitors. PFF is well positioned for growth over the next three years and into the future. As one of the largest black fishing companies in South Africa and given that current legislation is likely to promote black participation and black industrial development in this sector, this should be beneficial for the growth in this area.
