About Us
History

SANTEH has been in the forefront of the aquaculture business for over 20 years. We ventured into aquaculture during the 1990s in the manufacturing of TATEH pelletized feeds from our first production facility in Lawang Bato, Valanzuela. Today, our feeds are manufactured in our state-of-the-art Calumpit, Bulacan plant, which became operational in 2001. This plant covers an area of four (4) hectares, equipped with the most advanced extruder and pelletizer available in the global market.

 

From the original TATEH pelletized prawn feeds, we have expanded our product lines to the current crop of high yielding aqua feed products for a complete range of fish and crustaceans that are being served in tables of restaurants and homes. In 1993, our pellet feeds became successful and paved the way for the production of tilapia and milkfish feed, and later floating fish feeds and marine fish feeds for grouper and sea bass.
