Approximately 190 South Africans are employed at the Selecta Sea Products fish processing plant in Philippi. About 73% of employees are women. Why is that? The short answer is that women’s small, strong hands and natural tendency to work neatly and precisely are attributes very well suited to the filleting, trimming and packing of fish.
Employees receive competitive remuneration packages that include a number of benefits such as pension, provident fund and medical aid benefits.
