About Us

Our History

In the early 1950s, Chew Lam Kee and his wife started fishing for a living where he sold his fish to nearby wet markets. While making a living at that time was arduous, Lam Kee continued fishing to support his family’s livelihood.
Due to financial hardships, Koon and his brothers started work at a young age helping his father to fish and sell the catch. Growing up near Yishun, it meant that 10 year-old Koon had to travel to sea in his little sampan (boat) in the middle of the night to catch prawns and fish to supplement his family income. Lam Kee continued to explore other seafood businesses including fish farming and crab farming.
As Koon vividly remembered, his father always had this saying in Teochew: “Life is like fishing: Refine your skills, explore unchartered waters, and lay out your net. Possibly, you will find opportunities that others won’t.”

With a leap of faith, he further transformed the business into the frozen seafood distribution business that we see today. From its humble beginnings in 1974, Lam Kee is now one of South East Asia’s leading distributor of premium frozen seafood products. With its long history in the seafood industry, the company has established an extensive network in over several countries, including South East Asia, USA and Mainland China. Although the company has grown in size, Koon and his brothers continue to run the company, ensuring that Lam Kee is dedicated to delivering the best seafood products to satisfy customers. As such the company’s slogan:

“The Ocean Provides, We Deliver it.”
