Our Story

Jay Sea Foods Processing (Pvt) Ltd. is one of the leading seafood exporters in Sri Lanka and its success is due in large measure to its Founding and Managing Director, Mr. S.H.Jayasena, who pioneered the export of Tuna Loins to the European Market. He began his professional career as a Chartered Mechanical Engineer, becoming the Chief Engineer of the State Fisheries Corporation and then Chief Engineer of Sri Lanka’s State Engineering Corporation. In 1977 he accepted an offer to become Chief Engineer of a Company based in West Africa where he developed his deep interest in all aspects of commercial fishing and returned to Sri Lanka to set up his own Company.
Jay Sea Foods Processing (Pvt) Ltd. began its operations in 1995. With his expert technical knowledge and entrepreneurial skills Mr. Jaysasena created a Company around one of Sri Lanka’s greatest assets: FISH. It began by supplying fresh tuna to a Company which became the biggest Importer of tuna into the U.K. Jay Sea Foods Processing (Pvt) Ltd. now supplies leading Importers in the Netherlands, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, the USA, Canada, Russia, Ukraine and other Eastern European countries. The Company name is now synonymous with products of the highest quality. We supply leading supermarket chains across Europe, via our Buyers and major distributors.
Our products are all sourced fresh from the Indian Ocean and only from fishing vessels that are engaged in sustainable and environmentally responsible long line fishing. We have implemented best in class processing techniques to ensure the highest quality products for our Buyers. Portrayed on left is our founder Mr. Jayasena ; different hat but same safe Head. Over the years he has drawn together a highly trained, dedicated, devoted Team who deservedly enjoy high respect among the Sea Food Industry of Sri Lanka. He welcomed one of his Grandsons into the Company recently. Dumindha joined us in September 2020 and has already begun to demonstrate outstanding potential for taking us into a dynamic future with the rest of the Team. We hope you will join us.
