AIS Aqua Foods, Inc.
AIS Aqua Foods, Inc (AIS Aqua) has been in the seafood industry since 1983 when founder and Managing Director, Andrew Kaelin, began large scale shrimp farming in Central America. Since then, Mr. Kaelin has been working in aquaculture production both commercially and as a consultant to the World Bank (since 1989 in both China and Mexico), to the US Agency for International Development (in Russia, East Africa) and to non-governmental organizations (Sri Lanka, Indonesia).
The company was converted from a foreign entity (Sociedad Anonima, S.A.) to a US corporation (LLC) called Agribusiness International Services (AIS) in 2000. In January, 2003, AIS was changed to a C corporation, and the name was changed to AIS Aqua Foods, Inc. By taking advantage of its vast experience and extensive network of suppliers and processors, AIS Aqua has achieved a significant competitive advantage in the ability to identify, acquire, and supply safe, superior quality, and favorably priced fish and seafood products. This advantage has enabled us to become the largest supplier of scallops and a significant supplier of shrimp, tilapia, and catfish for chains such as Darden Restaurants (Red Lobster, Olive Garden, etc.) and other US restaurants, food processors and wholesalers. AIS Aqua has two registered brand names in the USA, AIS AquaTM and Ocean SkyTM.
