A fish processing factory is acquired and the company continues its operations as a manufacturer of canned fish.
Gamma-A launches its production of metal cans based in Riga, Latvia. Soon after, it starts to sell canned fish of other Latvian producers.
The most famous brand of the company - Riga Gold - begins its history; the Stella Maris trademark is registered.
The 3rd Gamma-A trademark is registered and production begins
In the "Made in Latvia" nomination, the Latvian Chamber of Commerce and Industry awards Gamma-A as the manufacturer of the most exported product.
The company starts production of easy-to-open lids to stipulate consumer convenience.
The company invents a new type of packaging for canned sardines with a transparent lid, which becomes a new word in the design of fish products. This type of packaging is now popular all over the world.
The product line expands with new types of products, implying cooking without smoking.
The next innovative type of packaging is a small glass jar. Even now, Gamma-A is one of the few producers of this type of packaging, as we have the resources and technology for manual production.
For the first time ever, Gamma-A produces smoked sprats in a glass jar, placing the fish vertically and giving the product a brand-new look.
The Asian consumers have highly evaluated Gamma-A products and today Japan and China are amongst the biggest importers of our smoked sprats and sardines.
Exporting to Australia becomes a significant event for the company; from that moment Gamma-A products get available in all parts of the world.
