The Indian Ocean Tuna company has employed about 250 Seychellois workers in the past month, ensuring steady work during the COVID-19 economic crisis in Seychelles.
Mark Benoiton, the company's environment, health and safety manager, told reporters that the factory is looking for an additional 100 workers.
I have been here for 17 years and this is the first time that I have seen people queuing at the door to come and work at IOT.
Benoiton said that this year, IOT has slowly upped production as there has been an increase in demand from Europe.
"There are two other factories in our group that have closed down at the moment due to COVID-19 and we need to cover for them so the demand is high," said Benoiton.
