About Us

PT. Siger Jaya Abadi (SJA) was incorporated on the 26th August 2011, in Lampung, Sumatera, Indonesia. Initially, PT SJA produced pasteurized blue swimming crab meat (portunus sp.) which was exported to the United States.

In July 2013, SJA took a big leap to achieve its vision by purchasing land and factory facilities to manage its production more independently. This acquisition allowed the company to become bigger, stronger, and garnered more support and commitment from its stakeholders.

Our Distribution

Despite our largest market is USA, the demand for pasteurized crab meat from other countries is increasing

Crab Meat Processing

Several steps of our production techniques are implemented to create the standard international quality products.

The picking process is when the body meat is picked up and separated from the shell

The sorting process is when the crabmeat is separated from the shells, foreign, mushy mate, texture and others . The final sorting results in good products.

This is when the crabmeat is filled into the cans where it is also weighted, seamed and barcoded.
The process of filling the can is hand picked and handled piece by piece, and also with the utmost care.

With no preservatives or other chemical agents, crabmeat is pasteurized for a long term storage

Prepare the FG according to the composition of each type of meat into a refrigerated container with 0C
