RDEX Food International Philippines, Inc., a member of the RD Group of Companies, was founded by our President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Rodrigo E. Rivera Sr. located in and around General Santos City in the southern Philippines.
RDEX operates five business divisions: Aquaculture Division; Agriculture Division; Processing Division; Cold Storage Division; and, Ice Plant Division.
Since its inception, RDEX has and continues to provide superior quality products through its wide distribution channels to both international and domestic markets. International customers in the United States, Japan, Europe and Southeast Asia trust RDEX to provide for their seafood and value-added products
The distribution of products in the domestic market is primarily coursed through stand alone stores, which are known as RDEX Tuna Shops. These shops are located around the Philippines and individual customers are able to purchase products that appeal to the local palate. Customers in the catering and restaurant business are able to avail of RDEX Products through authorized dealers.
The Aquaculture comprised of five prawn farms located in the SOCKSARGEN region that have a total watered area of around 50 hectares which can culture a total annual volume of 50 metric tons of Black Tiger Shrimp and 600 metric tons of Vannamei, also known as white shrimp.
In addition, RDEX operates nursery and hatchery facilities and cultured fish ponds. The fish ponds operate within a total watered area of 3.86 hectares and provide an annual harvest of 1,100 metric tons of finished product/produce/cultured fish.
The Agriculture division includes the raising of livestock around the hillsides of General Santos city. Orchards and farms produce organic fruits and vegetables that thrive in the volcanic-rich soil.
The Processing consists of two integrated plants with FFP-860 EU Accreditation that cater to the individual processing needs of customers for both international and domestic markets. Each plant is highly equipped with facilities such as blast freezers, contact plate freezers and vacuum machines.
RDEX was the first in General Santos City to acquire a spiral individually quick-frozen (IQF) machine with an hourly capacity of 500 kilograms per hour or a daily capacity of 12 metric tons. This has enabled RDEX to be more competitive and offer a higher standard of quality and freshness.
Each plant has a production capacity of 10 metric tons daily which consists of a combination of fresh frozen fish and other raw marine materials. With its highly equipped facilities, RDEX is able to guarantee superior product quality and a consistent supply of raw materials.
