About Us

We grow tilapia fish in the clear open waters of Lake Victoria.

Our cages are among the largest in Africa, providing an open environment for our fish to swim far and deep against natural lake currents. This environment produces a fish that is healthier and stronger, with a taste our customers have come to love. Our fish enjoy the very best diet formulation available based on soy, maize, and wheat.

Because Yalelo fish receive only the highest-quality balanced diet available, there is no mystery to what is on your plate. Using only the best feed available on the African continent keeps our fish healthy and gives a great clean taste!

Tilapia is an excellent addition to a healthy balanced diet. It is a rich natural source of protein, Omega 3 and calcium while being low in fat and cholesterol.


Yalelo Uganda’s international standard operation is lowering the cost and increasing the availability of high-quality fresh tilapia, making animal protein more accessible and presenting a strong value proposition relative to chicken, pork, and beef. We place our fish on ice from the moment of harvest and deliver nation-wide using an in-house fleet of refrigerated trucks. Our commitment to cold chain integrity guarantees our customers with a traceable and reliable quality they can depend on. Yalelo, a Bantu word loosely translated as “for today”, reminds our customers daily that we are Uganda’s favourite freshest local fish supplier!
