05/07/2016: Vaki celebrates 30 years and millions of fish counted

Nearly 100 people attended the conference in Iceland
This year marks Vaki’s 30th anniversary, so they are celebrating reaching this milestone on several occasions throughout the year.
The celebrations began at a private function held in Scotland in conjunction with the Aquaculture UK exhibition last month, where guests had the opportunity to chat and form new valuable relationships with the Vaki team and other guests in the pleasant atmosphere of Franco’s Bar.
Then, a few weeks after Aquaculture UK had concluded, many customers, employees, partners, agents and other benefactors of Vaki came together to celebrate this milestone in Vaki’s history.
Professional conference

The conference was held in Harpa, Reykjavik where nearly 100 people attended and listened to speakers from five different countries. The topic was the status and the future of aquaculture in the world. The party that evening was an anniversary reception in the Whale Museum in Reykjavík that nearly 200 people attended.
Guests had a 'whale' of a time at the party....

A team of highly skilled Chefs prepared a selection of delicious international meals from Vaki’s main markets, including Pisco sour and wine from Chile, whiskey from Scotland, fish from Iceland and sweets from Norway.

Hermann Kristjánsson, founder and CEO of Vaki held a small talk where he, among other things, gave a brief history of the company. Live music and entertainment went all through the evening and was well received by the guests. 
Next stop for the celebration train will be in Chile at the Aqua Sur exhibition where Vaki will continue to celebrate their success.
