Ralph’s Tasmanian Seafood Pty Ltd had its beginnings when Ralph Caccavo, a prominent Tasmanian businessman, began exporting live abalone to China in 1996.
The company is now the world’s largest supplier of live abalone caught in the wild, exporting more than 500 tonnes per year out of a total Tasmanian catch of approximately 2,600 tonnes. Ralph’s also owns government-issued abalone catch quotas in Tasmania.
In 2008, Ralph’s Tasmanian Seafood built a new processing factory on the shores of North West Bay in southern Tasmania. The company operates a modern feet of temperature controlled vehicles, their own charter plane and their own mother boat. This ensures the quality and consistency of our abalone from the water to the customer.
Value-added abalone products now include rumbled meat, chilled meat, retort pouches, IQF meat, vacuum-packed meat, canned meat, dried meat as well as abalone shells and salted abalone viscera.
