Who we are
An independent family owned business that has been in the seafood industry for over 30 years. Initially starting off with door to door sales of fresh fish, later on branched into the importing of prawns under its own brand “SHAMI”. It was then decided that a retail store, “SHAMI Seafood Emporium” would be opened and it was officially opened on the 19th August 2011 in Belgravia Road Athlone, Cape Town. After 11 years we have officially moved into new premises as “SHAMI Food Emporium” at 1 Chart Farm Building, Conradie Park, Pinelands, Cape Town. The store acts as the hub for its online store as well and is dedicated to providing the best service to its customers. With extensive knowledge in the industry we source the best possible products to offer the most affordable prices.
In addition to the vast range of seafood, we now carry over 300 products to choose from online and delivered to your door. It has been a remarkable journey for the SHAMI family that has stood the test of time to become a household name amongst the local community. Although serving the local community for over 30 years, we also offer national distribution and delivery services, whether fresh or frozen, seafood or poultry. We afford you the opportunity to share with us our passion for food. Our products are also available in a number of wholesalers around the Western Cape and Gauteng. We have dedicated ourselves to serving the customer directly and we always welcome customer feedback and participation. Get in touch for more information and feel free to visit us. SHAMI.
