Louis A Farrugia

Farsons Group on Friday honoured Chairman Louis A. Farrugia’s 50-year commitment to the company with a special event to mark the occasion.

Mr Farrugia is one of Malta’s most well-known businesspersons, having joined Farsons Group in 1974. He became Managing Director of the company in 1980, succeeding Anthony Miceli-Farrugia. In 1984, Mr Farrugia drew up a fresh brewery development masterplan that featured further enhancements to the company’s beer processing facilities. Mr Farrugia then ushered in Farsons Group’s involvement in the catering industry through the setting up of Food Chain Limited, and then in the food importation sector through the acquisition of Law Quintano Limited, now Quintano Foods.

When Norman Aquilina was appointed CEO in 2011, Mr Farrugia succeeded Bryan A. Gera as Chairman of the Board of Directors.

In order to celebrate his long-standing commitment to the company, during an event on Friday, Farsons Group sealed a time capsule that was filled with special heritage items.

Additionally, a dedication plaque at The Brewhouse was also unveiled to workers and the community.

The plaque, quoting Mr Farrugia, states: “The regeneration project of the brewery is dedicated to the thousands of workers who had a big say in the story of Farsons Group. We are obliged towards you and the community for the support over the decades and we promise you that we will remain faithful to the spirit of enterprise and creativity, and towards the solid values that were always the foundations of this historic industrial building.”

Farsons Group expressed gratitude towards Mr Farrugia, acknowledging that the group “wouldn’t be where it is today” without his “vision and enlightened leadership.”

Mr Farrugia’s contributions to the business community also extend beyond Farsons Group, with him also serving as Chairman at Multigas Ltd, Liquigas Malta Ltd, Trident Estates plc, and Farrugia Investments Ltd. In 2004, he received an Order of Merit (MOM) in recognition of his contribution on a national level to industry and enterprise in Malta.
