AquaChile is a company that was born 30 years ago in the south of Chile. The company is the product of different mergers and associations that have marked our character as an open company and willing to make alliances. In 2019 there was a new great integration between AquaChile, Los Fiordos, Salmones Magallanes and Friosur. With this merger, we became the national leader and the second largest producer of salmon in the world.
