Plentex has the Vision to become a leading Australian-Asian aquaculture business, marketing high-quality Barramundi fish throughout the region, supported by its own integrated agri-business and aquafeed operations and research & development into new aquaculture products.
Plentex Limited has established Plentex Philippines Inc. (PPI) as its operating entity to develop its integrated agri-business projects in the Philippines. The Philippines’ well established agriculture and aquaculture heritage creates a unique setting for Plentex’s business with indisputable economic advantages in terms of developmental time frames and costs. The project is strategically located near Tacloban, in Leyte Province, an area experiencing unprecedented major investment, civilian relocation and growth. Plentex’s base is located at Suhi on a company owned and adjoining leased site with close proximity to Tacloban airport providing short duration transport of product to Manila and export destinations.
The first stage of the project, ready for construction, comprises an integrated manufacturing plant that adds value to abundant local crops for immediate on-sale and, in the future, will also produce feedstock for the proposed aquafeed plant. At the same time, Plentex is laying the foundations for its aquaculture business with strong support from the Philippine Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.
In Australia, Plentex’s subsidiary Protemax Pty Ltd is focussed on establishing a state-of-the art, large scale feed manufacturing plant in Victoria to supply a range of premium aquatic and pet foods to meet market demand in Australia and overseas. More
