About Us

Established in Cape Town in 1995, Breco (Pty) Ltd. Seafood Importers and Exporters has developed a comprehensive regional network to become the clear leader in terms of market size in Southern Africa.

Company Facilities

The company has its head office in Montague Gardens, Cape Town and has an office in Durban. The administrative and logistics departments are run from Cape Town.

All distribution is handled via "state of the art" cold storage facility which is 100% owned by the company.

We are allied to numerous factories within the greater Cape Town area which are contracted to process for us on an exclusive or proportionate basis. The degree to which we are involved in these factories varies from financial backing to assisting with staff benefit schemes to merely being a dedicated client.

Our Vision

Breco delivers value to our customers and shareholders through the adherence to these Visions:

  • Being the preferred provider of Seafood Products throughout Southern Africa
  • Employing a talented team of professionals with expertise in their selected market segments in order to service clients and suppliers with the perfect mix of professionalism, knowledge and expertise
  • Being an employer of choice, fostering a culture that values Dedication, Respect, and Continuous Improvement


Breco imports product from all around the globe (and sources locally in our southern oceans) buying a range of marine products including Salmon, Herring, Mussels, Shrimps and Prawns amongst numerous others - all of these in varying forms, grades and pack sizes.

Exporting and Distribution

99% of product sold is in frozen form. We arrange processing of marine harvests where necessary and have access to all markets within the Southern African continent. Outlets range from Spaza shops in the townships to supermarket chains and government departments.

All markets are either supplied directly or via dedicated wholesalers with whom we have very close ties and who are suitably equipped to service the relevant markets.
