Gold Brands is pleased to inform shareholders of the launch of a new brand, Northsea South Africa (?Northsea?), through its subsidiary NorthSea Fisheries (Pty) Ltd.. The first franchise outlet will be launching on 15 August 2018 at the Angelo Mall in Nigel. Northsea is a casual dining restaurant offering fresh grilled seafood products, with a fish-market style offering at value-driven pricing and modelled with traditional seafood boils from Louisiana and Southern Texas, where eating shellfish is a social event. Northsea will capture the spirit of all seafood lovers by featuring a variety of market fresh seafood entrees served by the kilogram, prepared Cajun-style, Peri-Peri Portuguese style or Lemon butter Mediterranean style, accompanied with different sauces and fresh-cut sides all for one value price. The menu showcases varieties of lobster, crab, calamari, prawns and mussels, served grilled or fried as well as fresh seafood prepared in giant pots of seasoned broth, made to order and served in bags to preserve flavour.



Busier lifestyles and diminishing leisure time have increasingly led South Africans to turn to restaurants for meals. Restaurants allow consumers to combine dining with leisure and avoid spending time on food preparation. South Africa?s developing ?foodie? culture, combined with increasing consumer health consciousness and a focus on quality, is expected to provide further growth opportunities for the billion Rand industry. Northsea fulfils the consumer?s desire for casual dining and freshly prepared seafood.



Northsea is in a prime position, offering freshly prepared seafood products at value prices together with a fun atmosphere for the whole family ready to expand in South Africa. Announcement of the launch of Northsea is voluntary as Gold Brands would like to advise shareholders of the launch of this new brand.
