Direct Ocean
in a few words...

 

We are today the number 1 french importer of chilean salmon.

Located in Boulogne sur Mer, 1st French Fishing Port, the company has an ideal location between the commercial ports of Dunkirk and Le Havre.
The logistic platform of Boulogne sur Mer is a real avantage for our national and international business.

In Chile, our Puerto Varas office oversees our purchasing operations as well as direct sales outside Europe.

For 40 years, fresh or frozen salmon has been the "raison d'être" of Direct Océan. Wild or farmed, this fish is ans will remain the heart of the activity of our company. Our passion, "Salmon In All Its States" in order to respond to any specific request from our customers.

Quality

 
A Quality team at the service of our customers.

At Direct Ocean, whether in France, Chile or Asia, our quality managers support our Purchasing team in the selection and the monitoring of their suppliers.

The annual visits to our partners are regularly accompanied by an audit of the production sites.

The quality controls of the products purchased are systematic prior to loading or upon arrival.

In 2019, Direct Ocean launched an IFS Broker certification process. This certification will provide additional recognition for the food safety of the products that Direct Ocean sells to its customers.

At Direct Ocean, Quality is not an empty word, it is an integral part of the product sold.

"The success story of Direct Ocean, we owe it to our team, to our customers and of course to our suppliers.

I especially thank our customers who every day push us towards new challenges and force us to constantly question ourselves.

Questioning and discovery characterize Direct Ocean. Our many trips to France and abroad, our participation in major international fairs, our insatiable curiosity about everything related to seafood, feed our knowledge to meet the needs of our customers.

As long as this curiosity inspires us, with the confidence of our customers and our suppliers, Direct Ocean will remain the leader in its market."
