Sofrimar started life back in 1979 by the beautiful harbour of Kilmore Quay, Ireland, with a goal to become recognised as a world leader in seafood quality and sustainability, through the use of transforming technologies and the dedication of all our team. Specialising in shellfish processing with key species such as Scallops, Whelks, Langoustine, Brown Crab and Blue Lobster, we are committed to achieving superior quality produce with customer needs at the forefront of everything we do.
Kilmore Quay is not just perfect for fishing but also a place of natural beauty. You will find us between a special conservation area to the South and West and a windfarm to the North, with the Saltee Islands, which are home to a bird sanctuary, located just offshore.
Protecting and respecting this surrounding nature and the environment is paramount to who we are.
