About AGRO Merchants Group / Icestar
Icestar was created by Frigorífico Andino S.A., a group founded in 1999 and acquired by partners Kurt Reichhard and Pedro Lizama in 2000. Mr. Reichhard and Mr. Lizama have transformed Icestar into the leading cold storage company in Chile and will retain an equity position in the company.
