Business Overview

Mukka Proteins Limited manufactures fish protein products, producing and supplying fish meal, fish oil, and fish soluble paste. These products serve as essential ingredients for the production of aqua feed (for fish and shrimp), poultry feed (for broilers and layers), and pet food (for dog and cat food).

The company exports its products to over 10 countries, including Bahrain, Bangladesh, Chile, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, China, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Oman, Taiwan, and Vietnam.

Currently, the company operates six production facilities, with four located in India and two in Oman, held by its foreign subsidiary, Ocean Aquatic Proteins LLC. Additionally, the company runs three blending plants and five storage facilities, all situated in India.

Investors may consider applying to the IPO for the following reasons:

  1. Leading Market Position: The company is a top manufacturer and exporter in the fish protein products industry, holding a significant 18% market share in India’s fish meal exports.
  2. Good Customer Base: With nearly 20% of revenue generated from customers with a minimum 5-year relationship, the company has a solid and loyal customer base. It consistently attracts new customers from both domestic and foreign markets.
  3. Location Advantage: The company’s facilities are strategically located on coastlines, providing easy access to pelagic fish, a crucial raw material for fish oil production. This strategic positioning helps in cost savings on transportation and exporting.
  4. High Entry Barriers: Rigorous audits by authorities and a moratorium by the Marine Products Export Development Authority create significant entry barriers for new competitors in the fish meal and oil manufacturing sector.
  5. Experienced Promoters: The company is led by promoters with five decades of industry experience, actively engaged in manufacturing, procurement, and marketing. Their extensive involvement in various organizations and associations strengthens relationships with suppliers and customers, contributing to the company’s success.

Investors are advised to mark the date for IPO application.
