As a local Falkland Island business, we are dedicated to supporting the local community and investing in commercial developments that benefit the Islands’ economy.
South American Atlantic Services
South American Atlantic Services (known locally as SAAS) was set up in 2005 by CFL to provide a much-needed container link between the Falkland Islands and South American ports.
Using the vessel, the MV Scout, the service links local companies into the worldwide distribution network, providing Falkland Island industries with the shipping flexibility required to develop and expand their businesses. Since 2010 CFL has welcomed new partners in the operation which has allowed the company to expand its range of services to the customers.
Today, SAAS remains the only independent Falkland Islands company that offers a fixed day sailing schedule to and from Stanley, linking cargo to the UK and almost every other global port.
Falklands Fish Farming Limited
We are part owners of Falklands Fish Farming Limited – a company which is developing fish farming of indigenous species in the Falkland Islands.
Local inshore waters are ideally suited to aqua-cultural activities and it represents good future prospects for diversification and development in the Islands.
With limited workshop facilities locally to prepare, mend and fabricate spare parts and materials, we decided to create a facility which would not only provide those services to the local community, but also provide a facility for developing those specialist skills within the Falkland Islands.
