Christo du Plessis

It is our aim to achieve sustainable wealth through balance. Responsible growth is vital, and we intend to do this by building on our established reputation and leveraging off our renowned brand, innovative production systems and well trained team. We see growth as an opportunity to further our passion for integrity in business by embracing personal growth, community values and environmental health.

Since 1995 Abagold has built a brand name that is associated with quality and consistency for our clients. To our employees this brand means a challenging but rewarding work environment, and to our shareholders, growth and prosperity.

Through our experience gained in serving the industry and market, we have obtained the knowledge and expertise to become a leader in integrated mariculture and we intend to keep this dominant position.

Understanding the cultural significance of abalone, Abagold endeavours to bring to its customers and shareholders the best that the mariculture environment has to offer. One of the primary differentiating factors for Abagold is its commitment to responsibility, including environmental, economic and social responsibility. For all of us at Abagold it’s not just about doing things right, but also about doing the right things.
