Forrest Mars, Sr. worked with food scientist, Dr. David Ford – to not only develop a fish food that would be nutritionally superior to all others, but to also prove it with lab-controlled trials.
The AQUARIAN® brand was born when the first fish food products were launched in the UK. Seven different large flake size recipes were developed, and identified by colour so fish keepers could select the best recipe for their fish.
In the early 1980’s, the AQUARIAN® brand moved away from aluminium cans by developing high-density plastic packaging with a foil seal to ‘lock in that freshness.’
Marketing and PR outreach is initiated and expansion into new markets begins with leaflets and booklets to help attract beginners to the AQUARIAN® brand.
The Aqualab is built in Yorkshire, England focusing on engineering and product design.
A new lab is designed for pure research into fish nutrition at the Waltham Centre for Pet Nutrition in Leicestershire, England.
The AQUARIAN® product range greatly expanded their line of offerings to include fish food granules, sticks and pellets, and their packaging was redesigned to better meet consumer needs.
