Making healthy food available to everyone, throughout the year, was an idea we turned into our business mission. From the very beginning, we were oriented to satisfy the needs and desires of our customers. Our goal was to offer the highest quality and most complete range of fish, fish products and seafood, primarily for domestic and neighboring markets, in order to gain a competitive advantage.

Expertise, experience, tradition, development

We relied on our own strengths, that is on the acquired experience, profiled expertise and tradition of fish trade. That is how Fratello Trade started operating in 2000. We have became a mixed company on June 20, 2002 when 30% of the shares were bought by Horizonte Enterprise Development Company B.V. , the Netherlands, established in Vienna. We have became the first private company in Bosnia and Herzegovina to be through the procedure of initial public offering in Banja Luka Stock Exchange, where we collected additional capital for development.
Today, the shareholder structure consists of 75 shareholders, the largest of which are Mario Derajić with 56.81% and Horizonte Enterprise Development company B. V. Netherlands with 29.24% share.
