Foundation and History

Established in 1966 by Francis and Bella Tiu-Laurel, Frabelle had its start as a small trawl fishing company, equipped with just a single secondhand deep-sea trawler that operated solely within Philippine waters. In succeeeding years, Frabelle shifted from trawl fishing to purse seining small pelagic fish, eventually moving on to also catch tuna. By 1981, it expanded operations beyond Philippine waters into the Western and Central Pacific regions.

Today, Frabelle has grown to become a world-class fishing company with a fleet of over 100 vessels, and a growing workforce of 5,000. Frabelle is hailed as the go-to source for fresh, frozen, and processed seafood, with a market that extends to Asia, Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, and the United States.

In line with its enduring desire to address the ever increasing demand for high-quality food and value-added solutions, Frabelle continues to grow and diversify. In recent years, we have ventured into new and supplementary industries including canning, aquaculture, food processing and manufacturing, food trading, wharf development, shipyard operations, real estate development, and power generation.
