In 1998, Mr. Attilio Leardini founded Leardini Pescados; in its first year of operation, the company used to sell only fresh fish to fishmongers, small wholesalers and informal fish sellers in the Itajaí region.
Currently the company has its own fleet of refrigerated fishing boats, own trucks and an industrial structure that assure the international quality standards of Leardini’s products.
During its 20 years of history, Leardini has become one of the largest fish suppliers in Brazil and currently exports to several countries in Europe, Asia and North America.
