Apex was incorporated in 2005, operating a small chiller room in Providence on Mahe. Dealing exclusively in chilled perishables for the hospitality market, the business quickly outgrew capacity.

A substantially larger cold store was built in the SIBA complex, incorporating chiller and freezer rooms. Business grew to include frozen and a select range of dry products. In 2012 changes to the trading concession allowed Apex to also supply the retail trade. In 2013 the Providence cold rooms were upgraded for additional capacity and chiller/freezer capabilities.

In 2015 a cold store and distribution centre with chiller and freezer rooms, and a wholesale outlet, was completed on Praslin island. This represents the first permanent structure of its kind on Praslin, and provides a local, fully fledged supply point for all Praslin hospitality and retail, and a much closer and more convenient supply point for establishments on La Digue.
