La Marina Foods History
Kirsten Jooste who is the owner and director of La Marina Foods began her journey in 1995. Kirsten who was an independent agent in the fish industry; decided to buy a small company called La Marina Foods and thus got into the industry on a firm footing. Within 4 years in a small factory through hard work and great service the company doubled in size.
Another 5 years on the decision was taken to build a state of the art factory to accommodate the vast increase in business. It took 2 years to complete and was designed and is operated to the extremely high standards and requirements of the industry in Europe. Sustainability was achieved through the inclusion of an Ozonation System throughout the factory for top quality hygiene and sanitation. This is backed by a 500 KVA generator and a water storage facility with solar panels to reduce carbon footprint.
