Alimentos Prosalud is one of the largest seafood processors and distributors in Latin America, exporting to a variety of countries and continents.


In October 1975, Sardimar began processing and canning tuna under the Zapata Corporation. The commercialization of this product achieved unexpectedly staggering consumer acceptance.

Focusing on high-quality, controlled processes, the company came up with a variety of packaging and brands that successfully positioned themselves in the Central American market. In 1983, Zapata Corporation sold its Sardimar shares to a group of Costa Rican investors. Since then, Sardimar has been a 100% Costa Rican company with a long-term vision and a strong focus on quality and innovation.

In 2002, the inauguration of a new tuna, sardine and fish flour processing plant put Sardimar at the forefront of the Latin American food industry. Located in El Roble, Puntarenas, the plant was equipped with the latest in tuna cooking and canning technology designed to meet U.S. and European standards.

The company changed its name in 2011 to Alimentos Prosalud (APS), and to this day Sardimar is still one of its main brands.
