The company’s inception dates back to the sixties, as a sole proprietorship, represented by the businessman António Viegas Guerreiro.
In 1982, it became a limited company, bringing out the name António Viegas Guerreiro, Lda, commonly known as Avigel.
A few years ago, we have registered our trademark “Peixe azul” and, recently, changed our legal form to an anonymous society, becoming António Viegas Guerreiro, S.A..
The activity has always been based, mostly, on fish wholesale trade- fresh and frozen – with a subtle investment on bivalve sale.
Being a modest size company in its early stage, our company has been growing exponentially until it reaches the prominent position it occupies, nowadays, in its market segment. It is important to point out that the export rate stands at 80%.
We have recently started the sea fishery, through the fleets of vessels we have acquired, not only for our own benefit but also to encourage this regional typical activity, since it is clearly decreasing.
Given the difficult economic and social situation the country is facing, there is an increasing effort to keep the investment and to improve the facilities, fleet, equipment and training, so that we can constantly be able to adapt to the market demands.
In short, “António Viegas Guerreiro, S.A.” is a solid structured company that relies on efficiency and rapidity policies, aiming for the quality of its goods and services.
