Entrepreneurship awards for Aller Aqua
An international expert in aquaculture fish feed has been given two awards for its business achievements and for its commitment to sustainability.
Aller Aqua was presented the entrepreneur and the globalisation awards by Ernst & Young largely thanks to its long company history and its recent rapid expansion.
“The opening of two new factories this year as well as our approach to sustainable production and knowledge sharing in new challenging markets are some of the reasons we have received these awards, said Henrik Halken, Group Vice President and owner of Aller Aqua.
“We place a big emphasis on education of fish farmers in new markets as well as our CSR activities. It is certainly possible to achieve growth in a responsible way.”
He added that the company has achieved excellent turnover this year, which is particularly impressive seeing as it has entered into some risky markets.
Hans Erik Bylling is third generation of the Bylling family in the business, which is still based in Aller just outside Christiansfeld.
In November, he inaugurated the company’s Chinese factory, Aller Aqua Qingdao, together with his son, Anders Bylling. Also in 2017, the company inaugurated a new factory in Zambia.
Aller Aqua sells fish feed to more than 60 countries worldwide. Outside of Europe the sector grows by 8% yearly and Aller Aqua supports this growth by helping fish farmers optimise their yield.
Aller Aqua is now through to the EY World Entrepreneur of The Year finals which take place in Monaco in 2018.
