A. Raptis & Sons is your quintessential migrant-family business success story. In the 1950s, Arthur and Anna Raptis migrated from a Greek fishing village to South Australia, where they opened a fish and chip shop, with a wholesale fish area at the back. Three generations later, Arty Raptis, Arthur Senior’s grandson, is CEO of a multi-million-dollar enterprise with a fleet of boats fishing for seafood from the Torres Strait to the Great Australian Bight. It’s one of the country’s largest privately-owned fishing companies. Arty explains the pillars of the business’s success: a focus on premium quality seafood, embracing technology, environmentally responsible fishing practices, and staying true to its family roots.
