Seafood Producer Moves Business Online
Atlantis Seafood has moved online in a bid to increase trade due to its business being hit during the pandemic.
The company saw business drop by 70% as pubs, restaurants and hotels closed their doors, reports RTÉ.
The seafood processor said that a new website it has developed will help save jobs and build a new customer base.
The Wexford based company is now selling fish nationwide using specially developed packaging which keeps it chilled.
The team at Atlantis of Kilmore Quay started a home delivery service, using their vans that would normally be used to deliver to restaurants.
Speaking with RTÉ John Kenny, who runs Atlantis, said: "Our bread and butter business was the hospitality trade. We had many loyal customers over the years and hopefully in the not too distant future we will see that business return."
"Now that we are moving to online sales it is another string to our bow. E-commerce is a real growth area and with modern packaging we have developed delivering fish nationwide is not going to be a problem," he added.
The family run business was established in the early 1990’s.
