“Kai from the sea” offers fresh & sustainable seafood, with strong ties to the local fishing community. They also offer ready-to-eat, ready-to-cook products, and a private dining experience. A constant effort on providing the best seafood for domestic consumption has given rise to Kai-from the sea.
After almost 20 years of producing and supplying (to exporters) responsibly raised, chemical, and antibiotic-free Vannamei prawns and finally getting into the export ourselves for the last 6 years, It was time for GEEKAY Hatcheries to provide their world-class product closer home. And that is where the germ of the idea for Kai was planted.
However, the team wanted to not limit the offerings to just prawns, and hence the long-drawn exercise of scouting our shores for fresh catch began. A year and a half (and ongoing) of relationship building with fishermen off of the 1255km long eastern coast from Rameswaram to Kakinada and those that milk the rich river beds, gave us a huge window into variety and quality of produce that was available to us and was still waiting to get tapped.
