VIALCO SKOURTOPOULOS S.A. was founded in 1928 by Antonios Skourtopoulos, in the Oreoi village of N. Evoia in Greece, producing exclusively salted fish, under the Ambrosia brand name. Nine years later, in 1937, the company expanded its activity by producing canned tuna, in its second factory, which was set up for this exact goal.

Relocation and innovation
In 1946 VIALCO SKOURTOPOULOS S.A. moved to the central Greek city of Volos. Fourteen years later, in 1960, Nanos Skourtopoulos, the founder’s son, took over the company’s administration. Committed to innovation, in 1971 VIALCO became the 1st company producing canned sardines in Greece, while almost the whole of its production was being exported to Europe.
1995 has been a landmark year for our company, as it was then that VIALCO completed its relocation to its new, modern and self-owned facilities in the Second Industrial Area of Volos. in 1998 VIALCO changed its corporate type to S.A. and three years later it was included in a Community Support Framework project aiming at its further improvement and modernization.

All natural freshness and nutritional ingredients of fish rich in omega-3 polyun-saturated fatty acids are perfectly preserved, due to sterilization during the production process. No preservatives are added at all.
The ancient method of preserving fish in salt, provides anchovies, sardines and club mackerels with a distinct and fine flavour, after maturation is completed.
Fish fillets Fish fillets are carefully produced out of selected fish and can be served at your table with a bit of oil.
The smoking of our fish is naturally done with a combination of beech, rose and cedar woods. The temperature remains stable and smoking lasts for many hours, so that mackerel, herring and all the other fish impart their splendid flavours.
Greek delicacies that perfectly accompany ouzo, especially in summer, while enjoying sea and sun with a pleasant company.
An ideal delicacy for appetizers and canapés.
