Who We Are
Terrasan is a South African investment group which currently holds investments in the pelagic fishing, mariculture, aquaculture and property industries.
The Terrasan Group provides its subsidiaries with centralised Management, Secretarial, IT & Accounting services from its head office located in Plattekloof, Cape Town. Furthermore, it also provides treasury and property services to the Group.
Terrasan was incorporated in 1963 with the main objective to create wealth for all its stakeholders. Since its inception, the original underlying founding aim has been in adding value to Southern Africa’s natural resources as well as participating in sustainable development projects by investing in productive assets.
Terrasan subscribes to the vision that a sustainable business manages its activities and products responsibly to ensure a positive impact on society, the economy and a sustainable future. With a philosophy of sound investments, high standards and morals, and good business practices, the company has set a solid foundation for further expansion. This has been the cornerstone of Terrasan’s business and not only underlines growth for the entire group, but also equity and fairness for everyone involved.
The name ‘Terrasan’ is derived from the Latin words ‘terra’ and ‘sano’ – meaning ‘healthy earth’. To reflect the Group’s focus on the environment and the industries it operates in, the Terrasan logo and corporate identity comprise colours and elements inspired by planet earth, such as water, earth, and air.
In specific reference to the logo mark, visual representations of these elements are combined to form a subtle fish motif; acting as an illustration of life, but also paying homage to Terrasan’s current investments that have enabled the Group to grow from strength to strength.
