With the aim of conducting fisheries related business, Horizon Fisheries started its operation on 16th September 2003 after taking over Maandhoo Fisheries Complex (MFC) located in Laamu Atoll from the Maldivian government through a competitive public bidding process.
MFC is the largest of its kind in the country where we operate a new state of art, world class canned tuna processing factory; capable of processing 80MT of raw materials per day for canning, pouching and cooked loins. Other projects in the site include:
- 15MT chilled and super frozen tuna loins plant,
- 10MT traditional smoked and dried tuna unit and
- 50MT fish meal plant.
Apart from this, at MFC we have a cold storage of 3500 MT and a total of 4000MT storage capacity including our fleets. We also own a 1000MT capacity floating cold storage, a deep-water berth for shipping and a fishermen’s harbor to meet our processing capabilities.
Since the inception of the company, we have heavily invested in diversifying our business to meet the needs of Maldives fishing industry and most importantly our international customers,. This is practiced by achieving quality standards such as ISO9001, 14001, 22000, BRC (A Grade), Halal, Organic Certificate, e.t.c. We are also proud to be the first and only MSC certified fishery to currently carry Fair Trade Certified™ label, which reflects our company’s policy and long-standing commitment towards a socially responsible/fair partnership with fishermen, island communities and our factory workers.
Being the leading fish processing and exporting company in the country, we are committed to producing and delivering the highest quality tuna products. These products are made from fish that are caught by traditional and most sustainable method of pole & line fishing.
