The Vanafish NV traditional smokehouse was founded in 1979 by the Vanacker family who owned a fish shop in Roeselare at that time and experimented with the smoking of salmon for the first time. With their high demand for service and quality, together with a growing demand for smoked salmon, the company was able to become an important actor on the Belgian market of smoked salmon, and a modern factory of 2000m² over a period of 30 years.

At the start of 2015 the company was taken over by Bruno Dumolin and Tanguy Buyse. Strongly appreciating at their turn the Vanafish values of service and excellence. Focussing in particular on product optimisation and innovation, and with a thorough commercial approach, Vanafish strives to elevate itself to a higher level as a company.
