Mapco supply to Africa, Asia and Europe


The demand for quality dehydrated fish heads in Africa is greater than the supply available. With over a billion people living on the continent, 400 million or more estimated to work informally with no secure employment, strong GDP growth across most of the 54 constituent countries, and a rapidly growing young population, Africa looks sure to remain an important market for some time.
Fish heads are both a local delicacy and a way to survive in Africa. Many people survive on less than a dollar or two a day. By using fish heads full of protein as a starting point for stews and soups, people can supplement their diet. Supplying good quality fish-heads is a practical way to support people and is a fundamental starting point for Mapco’s philanthropic approach.


Fish is a big part of the diet in Asia. In South Korea dried salmon heads are a well-known delicacy and Mapco are currently undertaking research on salmon and pelagic fish. Oily fish represent a challenge because the liquid oil is difficult to extract successfully. Our intention is to export Salmon for the Korean market in the near future.

Mapco are also interested in further opportunities in Japan and China.
