An African company that is based in Abidjan, the first tuna sea port in the west Africa will be launching a new brand at the Africa’s Big 7 2017 in South Africa: GARBA, a canned tuna that comes with several different flavour additions

Société des Conserves de Côte d’Ivoire (SCODI) was set up in 1962 and is here in Africa looking for new distributors.

Now SCODI is owned by Thunnus Overseas Group. Katiénet Coulibaly, Sales and Business Development Manager of SCODI said “With more than 40 years of experience in the fish processing industry behind him, Mohamad A, Khachab is the CEO and the majority shareholder of SCODI. He possesses expertise and knowledge unique in the market.”

It is a large firm which specialises in the production of packaged fresh and frozen fish. The organisation generates an estimated $104 million in annual revenue.

Katiénet Coulibaly said: “We choose to participate at Africa Big 7 because it is a tradeshow that has already proven its commitment to connecting local and international businesses. This allows us to reach an area which is outside our comfort zone and to discover trends and visions of different markets.
