This is a company which I will investigate further and if found undervalued then will definitely invest.



  1. It is always a good idea to invest in food-processing industries, and the points you listed in favour of this company are surely in for a good return…

    But what do u think justifies the need of prawn loving countries importing shrimps from India when people there can raise the same in their own country ???

    Good article, by the way…

    1. The same reason for which most of the developed countries import other things from INDIA. CHEAP LABOR. India has a heavy population and rich flora and fauna which allows Indians to produce better quality seafood at cheap prices. If you look at those developed countries like Japan, USA, and Australia they have a much higher per capita GDP.They can’t get labor as cheap as India. Besides this, shrimps there might be of a different type or quality than the shrimps here.
