TUNA

Our consecutive knowledge of over 21 years in the export and supply of various tuna species, has created trusted partnerships in the preserved, processed and prepared food manufacturers in the European, American and Asian markets. Additionally, we are proud to have long-standing suppliers, who are also jointly committed to meeting our quality and sustainability standards.

CCA is a global player in yellowfin, albacore, skipjack and bonito tuna from the whole round, cooked loins and finally canned retail brands, which we source and supply directly to customers.

A subsidiary business unit within the group exports sustainable artisanal caught pole and line albacore tuna from South Africa. With our fleet of vessels supplying us, we can guarantee quality commitments to our customers. We have found that it complements our offshore tuna trading enabling CCA to be a global player with sourcing from South Africa, Namibia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Philippines, PNG, Indonesia, and China.

MACADAMIA NUTS AND KERNELS

Macadamias belong to the Proteaceae family. These trees are evergreen and grow slowly up to 12-15m after 10-15 years. The fruit has a husk, hard shell and a kernel. Macadamia nuts have a subtle, buttery flavour, and velvety-soft crunch that makes them highly regarded by consumers. They combine perfectly with many different flavours, making them an extremely versatile ingredient in many sweet and savoury dishes.

CCA procures macadamia nuts direct from farmers and then processes at our partner's processing facilities in South Africa and Kenya. We see the value in processing our nuts into the various styles of kernels and supplying our customers' needs in both the USA and EU markets as opposed to the standard nut in shell exports to predominantly China.

Macadamia nuts constitute only around one percent of the world's nut production; studies show substantial health benefits for these nuts and this is expected to drive world demand with South Africa currently the largest global supplier of macadamias.

RICE AND SUGAR

We trade in the following types of rice: white rice, basmati, parboiled and fragrant rice. Our rice is sourced from India, Vietnam, Pakistan and Myanmar with only the highest of quality standards. Our rice is packed in PP or POPP bags, in: 1kg, 2kg, 5kg, 2lbs, 25kg and 50kg.

In most parts of the world, sugar is an essential part of the human diet, making food more palatable and providing food energy. We source the highest quality sugar from South America and Asia. Our primary focus of supply is in the manufacturing industry, trading and distribution. We mainly trade ICUMSA 45 and ICUMSA 150 spec, packed in 50kg bags or 1-ton bags. We are not limited to only these two variants and please contact us directly should you have a specific requirement.

CANNED FOODS

Canning is a method of preserving foods for long periods by packing them in airtight containers. The process of canning preserves most of a food's nutrients and are shelf-stable for long periods meaning they do not require refrigeration making canned foods accessible to almost everyone throughout the year.

We offer the following canned foods: tomato paste, baked beans, canned sardines and canned mackerel.

Canned sardines mainly in CCA's brands, in 125 g net weight 95 g in sunflower or palm oil.

Canned mackerel in tomato sauce, 125 g, or 420 g cans.

Easy-open lids are offered on all products.
