This journey started 25 years ago when MAREX’s founder, Jorge Garcia, decided to advocate his life to the marine ingredients industries, after a long-life training around the sea and all its stakeholders.
His father, a prestigious Peruvian naval officer, and his uncle, an entrepreneur in the canned fish sector, taught him the value of these fantastic resources, and the importance of cooperation to succeed in this industry.
They also taught him that success is not only measured in bottom-line results but in its impact on people and the environment.
At 22, he began working in the fishing industry companies, starting his focus on fish oil and its applications in 1996. In 2013, he decided to start his own dream in the industry, first with Primelink and later with MAREX.
