What is Wholesale Seafood and how does it affect me?

Wholesale seafood refers to the bulk purchasing and distribution of fish and other seafood products. This is a common practice in the seafood industry, as it allows for economies of scale and helps to ensure a consistent supply of high-quality seafood to restaurants, supermarkets, and other buyers.

The Fish Farmer is a key player in Singapore’s wholesale seafood industry, supplying different types of seafood ranging from Red Snapper, Barramundi, Grey Mullet, Milk Fish, Golden Pomfret, Pearl Grouper and Japanese Sea Perch all in raise in Singapore waters from our GAP certified farm. The Fish Farmer fresh fishes caught and processed soon after, while our frozen seafood is caught, processed, and then frozen to preserve its quality.

How The Fish Farmer benefits B2B business in several ways:

1. Cost Savings:

Restaurants can often save money by buying seafood in bulk from a wholesale supplier. Our wholesale prices are typically lower than retail prices, so restaurants can get a better deal on the seafood they need to serve their customers.

2. Convenience:

We offer a wide variety of seafood products, so restaurants can easily find what they need without having to source from multiple vendors. This can save time and effort for restaurant staff, and it can help ensure a consistent supply of high-quality seafood.

3. Quality and Freshness:

We have access to high-quality, fresh seafood from a variety of sources. This can help restaurants serve fresh, delicious seafood to their customers, which can enhance the overall dining experience and improve customer satisfaction.

4. Variety:

 We typically offer a wide variety of species and products, so restaurants can offer a diverse menu to their customers. This can help attract a wider range of diners and keep them coming back for more.

5. Sustainability:

We are committed to sustainability, and we offer seafood products that are sustainably caught and processed. This can help restaurants serve seafood that is good for the environment, and it can also help attract customers who are looking for sustainable options.

Another advantage of Singapore’s wholesale seafood industry is its high standards of quality and safety. The country has strict regulations in place to ensure that the seafood sold in its markets is safe to eat and of high quality. This includes regular inspections by government agencies (SFA), as well as certification programs that certify seafood products as being sustainably sourced and properly handled which The Fish Farmer complies with completely.

To ensure the quality and safety of wholesale seafood, we follow proper handling and storage practices, our fresh seafood is kept at a temperature of 5 degrees Celsius and below, while the frozen seafood is stored at a temperature of 15 degrees Celsius and below.

In addition to handling and storage, we are licenced by SFA to operate a food processing establishment and cold store by following strict regulations and guidelines to ensure that our products are safe for human consumption. That includes a cleaning and sanitation programme, pest control programme and maintenance procedures and schedules for maintaining all equipment, fittings and work areas, we also comply with labelling and packaging requirements.

Finally one of the biggest challenges facing Singapore’s wholesale seafood industry is the increasing demand for sustainable and traceable seafood. Consumers are becoming more conscious of the environmental impact of their food choices, and they are looking for seafood that is sustainably caught and processed. In response, The Fish Farmer adopts sustainable fishing practices when raising our locally farmed fish and partners with word class seafood companies like Maruha Nichiro, Copper River Seafood, Yumbah Aquaculture, The Better Fish, Toba Tilapias and Froya Sashimi that have either been award with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certificate, Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certificate or both.

Overall, The Fish Farmer’s goal is to play a vital role in supplying high-quality seafood to our customers. By following proper handling and storage practices and complying with regulations, we aim to ensure the safety and sustainability of the seafood industry and our oceans.
