The picture showing a vendor seling fish symbolizes humility and simplicity. This depicts Frabelle’s humble beginnings back when FRABELLE had only one vessel whose catch was directly sold at the market stalls.
FRABELLE has come a long way and has grown to become one of the largest fishing companies in the world today.
Mr. Franciso Tiu-Laurel started the fishing company with a second-hand dee sea trawler which he acquired from Japan in 1196. He named his fishing company Frabelle; a word coined from his name Franciso and that of his wife, Bella. From trawl fishing the company moved into purse seining. Target species were small pelagic fishes like sardines, mackerel, and scads within the Philippine waters. In the mid-70′s, Frabelle also started the purse seining of tuna and in 1981 it expanded its fishing operations beyond the Philippines into the waters of the Western and Central Pacific region. Frabelle has evolved to becoming a world-class Philippine dee sea fishing company and has expanded its operation into food processing and marine food trading.
Today, Frabelle supplies fresh, frozen and process seafood products to the Philippine domestic market and exports the same to Africa, the Middle East, North America, Europe and other parts of Asia. Othere business areas that Frabelle has ventured into includes: Marl culture; Aquaculture; Post Harvest Facilities and Services; Engineering services; Ship Repair and Shipbuilding; Real Estate and Food Trading and Processing.
