SeafoodSource is closely following the plant-based and cell-based seafood alternatives market by compiling a regular round-up of updates from the sector.
-Cape Town, South Africa-based frozen seafood distributor Atlantis Foods Group has partnered with On The Green Side, a plant-based food company.
The partnership will "revolutionize the marketing, sales, distribution, and development" of new products for the South African market by joining the seafood sector with the plant-based market, the two companies said. The companies teased at their joint development of “an exciting new range of products.”
“Our vision has always been to focus on a sustainable supply of affordable protein that is accessible to consumers worldwide. For us, the choice has never been between plant-based meat replacements and animal protein,” On The Green Side General Manager John Uys said. “We believe there is room for both, and we feel that by combining our cutting-edge technology with the production, sales, marketing, and distribution resources of a reputable company like Atlantis Foods, we will be in a better position to execute our goal. We are really thrilled about this cooperation and believe it is a move in the right direction where we can contribute to more sustainable global protein supply chains.”
The partnership is effective 1 December, Atlantis Foods Group said in a release.
“We are very excited about this innovative partnership that will usher in a new era for Atlantis Foods, symbolizing a significant step forward into a more sustainable future. With our well-established footprint and large team, we are able to introduce the brand to locations previously out of their reach,” Atlantis Foods Managing Director Neil Pascall said.
