Ecuador is the place where everyone who boasts of being a good tuna businessman wants to be. This is where the poker of the most prestigious companies in the world is. But there is one company, the most important in Latin America, which is not part of a multinational.
It is called Nirsa and many people know it as Real. In Guayaquil is the pioneer in the tuna and the sardine world and the largest exporter of canned tuna, but it also swims well in the choppy waters of shrimp, tilapia, dorado or sardines.
And that asset is precious, present in the most demanding markets. Even the largest company of the world, Thai Union, has put an eye on Nirsa.
But Nirsa (Negocios Industriales Real). with a turnover of nearly 400 million dollars a year. “is not for sale.” This is the statement (textual) of its president Roberto Aguirre.
