From humble beginnings…

The Cappo family were early Italian migrants, with our original business being a partnership of six brothers founded in 1919 at Port Pirie, South Australia. They were pioneers of the South Australian Seafood Processing Industry.

A year later, Cappo's shifted to Grote Street in Adelaide operating under a canvas marquee. The business continued to source fresh seafood from the South Australian coast and establish an interstate network.

The 80s saw a major recognition of Cappo Bros quality and service when the firm was appointed seafood suppliers to Coles Supermarkets across South Australia and the Northern Territory. A continuing partnership valued to this very day!

The late 80s and Cappo's became a founding shareholder of the National Australian Food Service Distribution Association (NAFDA), ensuring the firm’s pricing was exceptionally competitive in the marketplace.

Cappo's recently opened a new retail outlet at the Pasadena Shopping Centre.

Cappo's fish and seafood products sold today remain primarily sourced from South Australian waters, with supplementary stocks and regional species sourced from other Australian waters and the finest frozen seafood the World has to offer.

Cappo's buying team can be seen in the Fish markets at sunrise to capture the freshest fish off the fishing boats. Our processing team are filleting by 6am in the morning. Our retail and food service customers then enjoy fresh products on the shelves or delivered to their doors starting from 8am in the morning.

Now that is fresh! That's service.
