We are 1,200 people strong, distributed between 7 industrial complexes located in the Metropolitan Region and the Regions of BíoBio, Los Lagos, Aysén, and Magallanes and Chilean Antarctica.
We transform raw materials into ingredients with high nutritional value.
In 2010, in light of the crisis produced in the salmon industry due to the appearance and propagation of the ISA virus, Pesquera Pacific Star S.A. merged with Salmonoil S.A. During the same year, the new company acquired the Escuadrón Plant owned by Foodcorp in the city of Coronel. This project involves long-term contracts with small-scale fishermen in the area. Raw materials processed in the new plant included sub-products from the shrimp and cuttlefish industry, as well as the capture of sardine species: Falkland sprat and Araucanian herring.
In 2012, the shareholders of Fiordo Austral signed a merger agreement with Trio S.A. Like the other Fiordo Austral subsidiaries, Trio bases its business on transforming and adding value to sub-products from the food industry.
In 2014, Fiordo Austral acquired 60% of OXZO. It already owned 40% of this company through its subsidiary Pesquera Pacific Star. OXZO is a company dedicated to the production of oxygen, notably its in situ bulk oxygen production unit, using systems it has patented in both Chile and abroad.
In May 2015, Fiordo Austral purchased 60% of Aquaprotein, located in the city of Porvenir. Aquaprotein produces hydrolyzed protein and oil from sub-products from the salmon industry in Chile’s Region XII.
In 2016, Fiordo Austral acquired 100% of SMT Shipping from the Von Appen group. This company complements the variety of solutions offered by Fiordo Austral in the salmon industry.
During the first quarter of 2017, Fiordo Austral acquired the remaining 40% of Aquaprotein, of which it was already owner of 60%.
