Canadian-born James Gulkin founded Siam Canadian 26 years ago with the goal of starting a seafood trading company to handle exports from Thailand into North America and Europe.
Now, more than a quarter-century later, the company has grown to oversee the entire exporting process, from packaging and quality control to transport and sales.
In 2015, Siam Canadian turnover was lower than the year prior, according to the company due to lower prices of shrimp.
In 2016, howerver, Siam Canadian expects to exceed $300 Million in sales as it reports stronger prices and volumes sold.
The United States is still the company’s largest market, followed by Canada and Western Europe.
