Salmones Magallanes was founded in Chile’s southern-most region in 1995 under the name Acuimag (Aquiculture of Magallanes). Its name honors the majestic stretch of ocean connecting the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, discovered by Hernando de Magallanes in 1520.
Initially, the company focused on producing eggs and fingerlings for production of Atlantic salmon. It soon built a solid reputation for the fresh water services it provided. In 2006 new associates provided fresh energy to the business, allowing it to expand to include the full cycle of salmon production in the Magallanes Region.
Currently, Salmones Magallanes has concession rights to 27 farm locations, as well as a reproduction center and a recirculation hatchery. This recirculation hatchery is one of the most modern and environmentally friendly of its kind and features very high bio-security standards, thus making us a leader within the region.
We are a salmon producing company. We feed the world with fresh, healthy products that come from the planet’s southern-most region. We respect and care for the environment, our workers and our community. And we adhere to the highest possible quality standards to best satisfy the needs of our consumers.
To proudly feed the world with salmon produced in the Magallanes’ millennial water resources
We are deeply convinced of the need to respect everyone we are involved with, especially the people we work with each day and their families. We do this by creating cordial, helpful, empathetic human relations that build mutual respect. And by respecting the natural resources that help sustain our business. We also do this by adhering to all the internal rules and national policies that govern our industry. And, finally, we do this by showing tremendous respect for the community that we interact with on a daily basis. We are constantly in touch with our community, striving to be perceived as an open, easily accessible business that collaborates in developing the community and in working for the common good.
We always communicate and behave in an honest way, sharing our ideas and concerns openly to whomever it concerns. We work honorably, making judicious and rational use of all the resources we have at hand. This is the best way to respond to the confidence the business has placed in us. We always behave correctly in each and every task we do, making us coherent in what we say and in what we do.
We put our heart and our mind to use in everything we do that is related to our work and to our business. We intensely live this dream on a daily basis, doing whatever we can to meet it. We never forget our personal security because we each have our own personal dreams to fulfill.
