COVID -19 CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT CERTIFICATION
Safety, the most important factor for our customers, stake holders, employees – their families and the community.
Global Sea Foods Sri Lanka aligned with the Governments strictest health protocols to ensure all safety practices are adhered to whilst processing our seafood products.
Our tribute goes to all our employees who adhered to the protocols directed to them for the safety of COVID 19.
We are Sri Lanka’s first and only COVID -19 safety certified seafood processing and export company certified by SLSI as “COVID-19 Controlled Environment”. It is indeed a “PROUD” moment for all of us at Global Sea Foods [Pvt] Ltd Sri Lanka.
Global Sea Food Ltd. (GSF) was presented with the prestigious National Business Excellence Silver Award on 13 December conducted by the National Chamber of Commerce Sri Lanka. Global Sea Foods has been an award recipient for Excellence since 2009.
This award is the third accomplishment for the company who received similar awards at the Presidential Exports Award 2019 and the NCE Award 2019 which is indeed a remarkable performance by the company.
Over the past few years we have grown our business with more innovations to fulfill the increasing demands in the sea food industry. We have strengthened our business partnerships, increasing our processing capacity and developing a compelling product portfolio.
“With a strong growth strategy in all the channels we operate, we are the first company in Sri Lanka to process wakame seaweed to the Japanese market and also embarked into developing and introducing a sustainable fish and seafood packaging solution which will replace styrofoam which is extremely harmful to the environment by the introduction of a new biodegradable packaging material. GSF is committed to sustainability, sourcing and processing seafood responsibly to protect the natural resources whilst delivering freshness and food safety to the consumer. GSF commitment to the marine eco system is further demonstrated by initiating the Sri Lankan Fisheries Improvement Program, targeting MSC certification,” said Global Seafoods CEO Sampath Padmawansa.
Global Seafood is a leading processor and exporter of seafood products worldwide.

- New product added to Sri Lanka’s export basket
The Board of Investment of Sri Lanka signed a supplementary Agreement with Global Seafoods Ltd. on 17 May, to process Wakame seaweed for export in their existing factory complex. The Agreement was signed on behalf of the BOI by Board Chairman Mangala Yapa and by Global Seafoods Director Radhika Subasinghe, and Chandani Weragala signed on behalf of Nexia Corporate Consultants, secretaries to the company. Also present was Group General Manager Parakrama Weerasinghe.
Parakrama Weerasinghe stated: “Wakame is a seaweed found in the Pacific Ocean, which we will be importing from Japan, processing, and re-exporting to Japan. It is used for Japanese cuisine, especially soups, and some other dishes. It is the first time that this product is processed in Sri Lanka so Global Seafoods is very proud to be a pioneer in this field.”
He added: “Global Seafoods Ltd. started its operation in 1999 and is engaged in the processing and exporting of frozen and fresh fish globally. Our main markets are Europe and the USA. We also process sashimi-grade salmon products in Sri Lanka to be exported to Japan. That also is a new product for Sri Lanka’s export basket, which we introduced about 2 years ago. Earlier this particular salmon processing was done in Vietnam, but we were able to persuade our buyers to process it from Sri Lanka.
“We can therefore proudly say that Global Seafoods has introduced new fisheries and seafood products to Sri Lanka’s export basket.”
Global Seafoods is a company that employs more than 250 staff and supports the local fishing industry by purchasing the bulk of its raw material from local fishermen.
