Vitapro controls Salmofood, a supplier to the Chilean salmon farming industry.

Hugo Carillo has announced his departure from Peruvian consumer goods company, Alicorp and its aquaculture subsidiary Vitapro, ending a nearly 29-year tenure.

Vitapro, the aquaculture feed arm of Peru’s Alicorp conglomerate, valued at $3.3 billion, also controls Salmofood, a supplier to the Chilean salmon farming industry.

“I’ve been pleasantly surprised and have grown to love the aquaculture industry in ways I never anticipated. Witnessing its transformation and knowing Vitapro’s significant role in this change fills me with pride,” wrote Carillo on LinkedIn.

Carillo also expressed gratitude to his colleagues and mentors, specifically thanking Leslie Pierce, Paolo Sacchi, Alfredo Pérez, Jaime Butrich, Andres Borasino, Guillermo Paredes, and Mario Rossi for their guidance.

Acknowledging the transformation he observed in the aquaculture industry, Carillo praised the Vitapro team for their contributions and expressed confidence in his successor, Fabricio Vargas.
