Captain Fresh was founded in April 2019 by Utham Gowda. It leverages technology to deliver freshwater fish and seafood to retailers across all key formats. The company said it is building a trusted seafood supply chain by bringing in intelligence for superior demand-supply matching, enabling e-auctions for sourcing, standardising supplies, and maintaining digital traceability systems.
