Qian Hu Story 仟湖的故事

Our history can be traced back to the early days of the Company’s pioneers – two brothers who were in the pig farming business – Mr Yap Tik Huay, the father of our Executive

Chairman Kenny Yap, and his brother, Mr Yap Hey Cha, father of our Deputy Managing
Directors Alvin Yap and Andy Yap.

我们的历史可追溯至本公司的两位创业先驱——经营养猪业的葉氏兄弟,叶德会先生是我们董事会执行主席叶金利的父亲,其弟叶木德则是我们副执行总裁Alvin Yap与Andy Yap的父亲。

Converted old pig pens into concrete ponds and bred guppies for local exporters.


1989 1989.jpg

A severe thunderstorm wiped out all the guppies. Company was renamed Qian Hu which went on to farm High-Fin Loaches despite knowing very little about this fish. In one fell swoop, our entire stock of 4,000 Loaches died. We lost almost everything again, except the determination to rise up. To this day, the High-Fin Loach serves as Qian Hu’s mascot – which serves as a daily reminder to us.

一场猛烈的暴风雨摧毁了所有的孔雀鱼。公司改名为仟湖鱼业,转而以养殖烟脂虎为主,尽管当时对这种鱼的了解还很少。一次意外,我们全部 4000 只烟脂虎都死光了。我们再度陷入几乎一无所有的绝境——除了东山再起的决心。 至到今天, 烟脂虎 仍是仟湖鱼业的吉祥物,每天都警提醒我们莫忘当年的事故。
