About Us

Ocean Star Products started out in 2001 in Cape Town as a result of a merger between JL Foods (local market commodity trading company in the wholesale and catering industry) and Gulf Pacific Seafoods SA (exporter of frozen seafoods).

We strive to please our customers with excellent service and high quality products from reliable resources and local as well as internationally recognized suppliers.

We deliver products harvested from South African and Namibian waters to the local and export markets. This includes products from both the West and East coast of Southern Africa and frozen seafood from the rich waters of Namibia. Our sister company in Namibia has fishing rights to operate in Namibian waters in the trawl and handline caught fishing industry. Species landed from this producer are Squid, Sole and Kingklip (Cusk Eel family), all of which are imported into South Africa for local consumption.

To provide our customers with even more choice and a bigger range of seafood, we import goods from various other countries, mainly Canada, Peru, Spain, Namibia, Holland, Korea, China and and New Zealand. We then deliver these superior quality products, sourced from all over the world, straight to our customers; who include caterers, fish deli’s, wholesalers and franchise holders.

Our head office is situated in one of the industrial areas approximately 15 km from the port of Cape Town where we receive 90% of our import containers. We currently make use of numerous commercial cold stores in Cape Town where our trucks are loaded on a weekly basis for distribution throughout South Africa.

You can visit us at Frazzitta Business Park, Unit 41 , c/o Koeberg Rd.& Freedom Way, Milnerton, Cape Town.
