Their Majesties the King and Queen of Spain with the livestock and dairy sector. Central lechera asturiana strengthens its commitment to farmers and to spanish society

Granda, 8 May, 2020

Their majesties the King and Queen of Spain held a videoconference this morning with the chairman of Central Lechera Asturiana SAT and CAPSA FOOD, Bertino Velasco, and with its General Manager, José Armando Tellado, in which they addressed different aspects related to the sector as well as the company’s current situation and its adaptation and operation as an essential company during the COVID 19 crisis. They also shared aspects related to its future projections.

The meeting with Corporación Alimentaria Peñasanta, a company of cooperative livestock origin, the leading Spanish dairy producer, and with its General Manager, who also serves as Chairman of the National Federation of Dairy Industries —the sector’s Employers Association— completes the extensive framework of contacts with the Spanish primary sector, with a vision of the bovine livestock sector and the dairy sector. His Majesty the King visited Central Lechera Asturiana’s facilities in Granda (Siero) on 22 January 2018, on the occasion of the Cooperative’s 50th Anniversary.

Throughout the conversation, the Chairman of the company, Bertino Velasco, spoke to their majesties King Felipe and Queen Letizia about the importance of the work carried out by CAPSA FOOD for the dairy sector and for Spanish society. In this period, and fulfilling the dairy company’s purpose to provide a future for livestock farmers, CAPSA FOOD has guaranteed 100% of milk collection from its livestock partners and the jobs of all their workers, as well as the supply of its products for Spanish consumers.

José Armando Tellado, General Manager of CAPSA FOOD and Chairman of FENIL (National Federation of Dairy Industries), reviewed the general situation in the dairy sector and the impact the pandemic has had on it. Throughout the meeting, he also detailed the measures taken by the company to maintain the health and safety of its employees, as well as CAPSA FOOD’s future plans to fulfil its strategy, emphasising that the agri-food industry can be a lever on which to rebuild the economic relaunch in Spain.

The company’s plans to provide livestock partners a future by offering natural products and solutions that improve people’s health and quality in a sustainable environment, include facilitating environmental transformation by working with a network of certified livestock breeders known as “Sustainable Family Farmers”, in addition to continuing to develop circular economy projects, such as its participation in ENTOMO AGROINDUSTRIAL to become certified as ZERO WASTE this year.

Through the Central Lechera Asturiana Institute for Personalised Food (ICLANP), it will also promote —as a result of the collaboration between food (CAPSA FOOD) and science (Asturias Principality Institute of Oncological and Molecular Medicine, the Murcia Catholic University, the Extraordinary Chair from the Complutense University of Madrid and WeDOCTOR) —a health platform that offers personalised nutrition solutions from the analysis of intestinal microbiota, and participate in the diet of the future through its recently created CAPSA VIDA, a five-million-euro fund for taking part in start up with projects in the field of health, sustainability and personalisation. It will also continue in its commitment to developing the NMCLA Adumes line in the pharmacy channel, through its collaboration with Cantabria Labs.

CAPSA FOOD will continue to develop the export market, where it is present in more than 40 countries, representing 36.8% of packaged liquid milk that is exported from Spain to markets outside of the European Union.

Throughout the meeting, the company explained its solidarity actions to contribute to Spanish civil society during the pandemic, with product donations to the network of public hospitals in the Asturias Principality, Red Cross, Food Bank, Quirón Clinics, Meliá medicalised hotels, among others, in addition to its commitment to deliver more than one million litres of milk for free to the Spanish hospitality sector when it reopens.

CAPSA FOOD is the manufacturer and marketer of the Central Lechera Asturiana, LARSA, ATO, ASANA, “39YTU”, VEGA DE ORO and Innova Food Ingredients brands and a leading company in sales of dairy products and by-products nationwide. Central Lechera Asturiana is an Agrarian Transformation Company (ATC) that was founded as a livestock cooperative in 1969 and holds 81.53% of CAPSA FOOD’s shareholding, although it also has interests in other companies.

The company’s industrial network includes seven factories in five Regional Communities. The main plants are located in Granda (Asturias), Outeiro de Rei (Lugo), Vilagarcía de Arousa (Pontevedra), Zarzalejo (Madrid) and it has a shareholding in the Vidreres factory (Gerona).

This growth is also reflected in its market share in value (Source: Nielsen). In liquid milk, CAPSA FOOD brands increased 6.8% in 2019 compared to the previous year, which implies an increase from 16.7% in 2018 to 17.9% in 2019, all in a declining market (-0.4%).

It should be noted that CAPSA FOOD has increased its exports by 50%, with greater presence in more than 40 countries. Since 2017, it has added new destinations including Macao, Hong Kong, Guinea Bissau, Qatar, Bahrain, Mexico, Chile and Panama, among others.

  • The purpose of this agreement is to develop a joint brand project bringing together the synergies of both companies to create shared value, and to serve as a platform for future growth in the Spanish and international markets.
  • In 2019, the Burgos company’s turnover was more than 63 million euros, growing 16% compared to the previous year.
  • The resulting joint sales volume in the cheese market will exceed 95 million euros, placing the companies as one of the 10 largest cheese operators in Spain.

Granda, 20 January 2020

On 14 January, CAPSA FOOD signed the purchase agreement to acquire 50% of “LÁCTEAS FLOR DE BURGOS SL”, which to date belonged entirely to the Angulo Family, which began operating in the cheese market in 1915. The fourth generation of the family created this company in 2003, which produces fresh cheese and dairy products under the “Flor de Burgos” brand and which also has modern facilities with efficient production in the town of Burgos.

In 2019, the Burgos cheese company’s turnover was more than 63 million euros, having grown 16.5% over the previous year and 175% in the last five years. CAPSA FOOD’s turnover in 2018 was 738 million euros, 6.1% higher than in 2017.

The purpose of this agreement is to develop a joint brand project, combining the synergies of both companies to create shared value. The resulting joint sales volume in the cheese market will exceed 95 million euros, which will place the companies as one of the 10 largest cheese operators in Spain.

With this operation, and through this new joint project, CAPSA FOOD reinforces its commitment to the cheese and fresh products market, in the process of open diversification within the company and with a solid focus on growth in Spain and abroad. Today, LÁCTEAS “FLOR DE BURGOS SL” international sales represents 10% of its turnover, while CAPSA FOOD’s sales in the international market are close to 8% of its turnover.

Industrial management will continue to be led by the Angulo family, which has specialist knowledge and know-how in this area and modern and technologically advanced facilities. CAPSA FOOD will bring to the project its experience in developing and managing leading brands, as well as its sales force in the different marketing channels, which are added to the current alliance maintained by “LÁCTEAS FLOR DE BURGOS SL” with the TGT Group, its current business partner, and which will remain in the project.

Javier Angulo will continue as chief executive and a joint board of directors with an equal number of representatives from both companies will be created for corporate governance.

CAPSA FOOD and “LÁCTEAS FLOR DE BURGOS SL” aim to accelerate growth by introducing new references and entering new international markets, seeking leadership in the cheese and fresh products category.

With the consolidation of this operation, CAPSA FOOD expects to close 2020 with turnover of more than 800 million euros, under the new 2020-2025 Strategic Plan.

Central Lechera Asturiana’s social networks convert interactions into litres of milk for SOS Children’s Villages

Central Lechera Asturiana’s social networks convert interactions into litres of milk for SOS Children’s Villages

  • The “The Fourth Glass” campaign is active from 18 December to 6 January with the goal of donating 25,000 litres of milk
  • Litres can be accumulated through social networks, adding one litre of milk to the initiative for each comment, like, post-share or video watched

On 18 December, Central Lechera Asturiana will launch its Christmas campaign ‘The Fourth Glass’ in order to accumulate the maximum number of litres of milk through social networks and donate them to the non-government organisation Aldeas Infantiles SOS (SOS Children’s Villages).

The dairy firm hopes to collect around 25,000 litres from the beginning of the campaign, on 18 December at 14:00, until 6 January 2020. The idea stems from the tradition of leaving three glasses of milk out for the Three Wise Men on the night of 5 January and adding an extra one through donation for people in need, children and families in the Aldeas infantiles SOS prevention programmes.

The number of litres is increased through social networks, with each comment, like, post shared and video watched adding one litre of milk to the initiative:

  • Facebook:Comments, likes, shares and videos watched.
  • Youtube: Videos watched, likes, favourites and comments.
  • Instagram: Likes and videos watched.

With this initiative, Central Lechera Asturiana confirms its commitment to initiatives that encourage people in society to have a more natural and healthier diet, and its collaboration with and support for charities and NGOs, especially during the festive dates, on which humanitarian actions increase.

It also highlights its collaboration with the Asturias Food Bank, which raised 2040 euros in September this year with the proceeds from the sale of authentic Asturias ‘cachopos’, made with Asturias veal and cheese from Central Lechera Asturiana, during the 63rd International Asturias Sample Trade Show (FIDMA) 2019.

THE ASTURIAS INSTITUTE OF ONCOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR MEDICINE (IMOMA) AND CAPSA FOOD UNITE TO ADVANCE THE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AIMED AT IMPROVING HEALTH

THE ASTURIAS INSTITUTE OF ONCOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR MEDICINE (IMOMA) AND CAPSA FOOD UNITE TO ADVANCE THE SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AIMED AT IMPROVING HEALTH

  • Both entities will work on joint projects in the nutrition and health field within the European Union competitive framework.
  • They will also undertake activities related to public promotion of research and specialised training educational programmes.

CAPSA FOOD and the Institute of Oncological and Molecular Medicine of Asturias (IMOMA) have signed a collaboration framework agreement focused on the scientific and technological development of products and services aimed at improving people’s health and nutrition.

Together, they will undertake research projects within the European Union competitive framework. They will also carry out scientific surveillance activities in the field of clinical nutrition, exploring possibilities for collaboration on personalised nutrition through genomics and metagenomics. To do this, they will create working groups and prepare studies and reports.

This agreement enables the companies to cooperate on training programmes for researchers and organise common activities related to health promotion through research: educational programmes, specialised training, proprietary qualifications, courses and seminars.

Thanks to the agreement signed by CAPSA FOOD and IMOMA, both entities will collaborate on cultural promotion activities, in addition to promoting business and technological issues.

The Medical Director of IMOMA, Rubén Cabanillas says, “This agreement reflects IMOMA’s commitment to improving the health of the population as well as development and innovation in the local region. In the era of precision medicine, we are increasingly aware of the interaction between genes, microbiota and diet. CAPSA’s commitment to research in the field of personalised nutrition, its roots in the agri-food sector, its link to Asturias and its interest in developing products that contribute to consumers’ well-being makes it the ideal collaborator for developing innovative research projects in the fields of food and nutrition. Technically and scientifically ambitious projects that aspire to have a significant social impact.”

José Armando Tellado, General Manager of CAPSA FOOD, says that “this collaboration agreement with IMOMA provides the rigour and scientific value of experts who work in the field of health and nutrition as a fundamental element for treating and preventing different diseases. Thanks to the patronage of the Maria Cristina Masaveu Peterson Foundation, IMOMA has led and continues to lead research projects that have enabled it to consolidate as an international leader in personalised medicine, especially in oncology and clinical genomics.”

IMOMA (Asturias Institute of Oncological and Molecular Medicine) is a health entity owned by Corporación Masaveu, Liberbank and Medicina Asturiana, whose objective is to help people recover their health, prevent disease from developing and improve quality of life, making healthcare professionals, the latest advances in molecular medicine and high-precision radiotherapy available to healthy as well as ill people.

IMOMA works hard both to strengthen patients’ confidence and to ensure that all people who can benefit from their services have access to them. To achieve this, in addition to the work of its professionals, significant work is undertaken on strategic alliances with institutions and providing support for community development with actions that highlight the company’s commitment to and performance of its services. IMOMA aspires to be one of the most reputable and recognised institutions in the country, a leader in highly complex radiotherapy treatments and leading molecular medicine tests. In addition to being a medical and scientific leader, IMOMA aims to be an ethical leader, at the service of its patients and society, and contributes to the personal and professional development of its staff and collaborators.

CAPSA FOOD (Central Lechera Asturiana, Larsa, ATO, 39ytu, Vega de Oro and Innova Food Ingredients) is the leading company in the Spanish dairy market with seven production centres throughout Spain providing direct employment for more than 1,300 people with international presence in more than 40 countries.

In 2017 it was recognised as the company with the best reputation in Spain according to the REPTRAK study by the Reputation Institute. CAPSA FOOD is also the first Spanish food company to have the 500+ European Seal of Excellence awarded by the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) and the Excellence in Management Club (CEG), which implies that it is a well-managed company and a “model to follow” in Spain, a company that innovates in the market with new formats and new products with functional benefits and creates an excellent work environment for professionals’ development.

Within its concern for social responsibility, CAPSA FOOD supports the primary sector and the rural world, promoting health through nutrition and healthy living habits, protecting the land while respecting the environment and continuing to be an exemplary employer as it has done since it was founded.

LEGO® and Central Lechera Asturiana announce a collaboration to promote knowledge about nutrition and child development

LEGO® and Central Lechera Asturiana announce a collaboration to promote knowledge about nutrition and child development

LEGO® and Central Lechera Asturiana, two brands with a similar vision about children’s healthy growth, have announced the beginning of a collaboration that will promote the knowledge and preservation of natural sources of healthy food and children’s intellectual, creative and physical development.

This collaboration will unfold in unique and interesting initiatives during 2020 that will promote the goodness of the environment where Central Lechera Asturiana products come from and the benefits of good childhood nutrition among consumers. At the same time, LEGO’s fundamental values are promoted that are so important for children’s development, such as family play time, problem solving from a creative approach and learning from imagination and fun.

LEGO and Central Lechera Asturiana will therefore begin this December by celebrating Christmas with all consumers in a very special way: all whole, semi-skimmed, skimmed and 0% milk will include a fun and Christmas-themed LEGO graphic, in four different images, which will be available in shops and supermarkets from the beginning of December.

A joyful Christmas greeting that also comes with an opportunity to receive a great gift for these dates. A consumer promotion will be launched to enter into a draw to win one of five trips to LEGOLAND by purchasing milk packs. The trip is for the whole family to visit the first of the theme parks that the toy brand has opened in recent years that is located in Billund (Denmark), the town where LEGO’s history began. The trip includes flights, accommodation at LEGOLAND Resort, entry tickets for the park and visit to LEGO House, a 12,000-square-metre experiential house with 25 million LEGO blocks.

With this collaborative campaign, both brands seek to convey the principles and values by which they enjoy great recognition and reputation (according to the REPTRAK Study, LEGO occupies second place in the world rankings and Central Lechera Asturiana is the Spanish brand with best reputation according to the study in Spain). Such values include the commitment to natural products, healthy nutrition and caring for the environment in which Central Lechera Asturiana operates, and LEGO’s approach to childhood development through game dynamics that stimulate creativity, a skill that will accompany children throughout all stages of their life, providing solutions to problems and encouraging innovation and developing critical thinking, skills that are considered vital to achieving success in the future.

The President of the Region of Murcia opens the Entomo Agroindustrial Research Centre, a pioneer in the use of insects as waste bioconverters

The President of the Region of Murcia opens the Entomo Agroindustrial Research Centre, a pioneer in the use of insects as waste bioconverters

Last Monday the 25th, the President of the Region of Murcia, Fernando López Miras, opened the Entomo AgroIndustrial Research Centre in Cehegín (Murcia) and visited its installations. The dairy business Capsa Food belongs to its body of shareholders and acquired 15% in September as a sign of its strong commitment with the environment.

The President of the Region of Murcia attended the opening ceremony with Diego Amores, CEO of Entomo Agroindustrial.

Installations guaranteed by the European Commission

This Research Centre is an innovator in Europe and is dedicated to the study of the use of insects as bioconverters. With its 400-m2 surface, it is guaranteed by the European Commission, as well as Spanish scientific institutions.

Its installations are designed to recover all types of industrial waste, in order to create adequate technological transfer models that are suitable for a variety of clients. In addition, this centre allows for experimentation with new technologies for process optimisation and the generation of new production systems.

Pursuant to the studies that will be led at the Entomo Agroindustrial Research Centre, insect production will be industralised so that organic waste can be treated and transformed into something other than landfill material.

Basically, the aim is to help to change the world through Industrial Ecology – by means of the implementation of circular economy and bioeconomy, developing industrial projects for insect production – and thus  to become a worldwide leading business in waste recovery.

The black soldier fly, a “bioconverter”

To transform its waste, Entomo implements a type of technology that bases the industrial application of the black soldier fly as a converter, transforming organic matter of a low added value (biowaste) into raw materials of a high added value. This species has been selected for three main reasons: it has a great capacity to convert a wide range of waste types; it can be industrially produced at high density; it is not considered a plague or an insect that could be potentially harmful to the environment.

These insects can feed on organic matter and generate high-quality products, such as protein (used for fodder and foods), industrial fats (detergents and industrial oils), chitin (water purification, agriculture, chemical industries, packaging and the pharmaceutical industry) or substrates with fertilising potential.

Some of the most outstanding products that can be generated by this new industry are those for the agri-food industry (hydrolysed flour and fats for animal feeding or ecological compost), farming or the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry (antimicrobial peptides, chitosan for various purposes or antibiotic fatty acids).

It is an adaptable technology than can be used in a wide range of areas, from restaurants to supermarkets, or an industrial transformation plant like the one opened in Cehegín.

ENTOMO AGROINDUSTRIAL is a company founded and led by Diego Amores and a solid scientific team, supported by a multidisciplinary group of professionals, all of which are examples in their field. Its aim is to search for industrial solutions for the treatment of organic matter through the use of insects. ENTOMO offers a technological solution in the field of Industrial Ecology by developing industrial projects for insect production geared towards the generation of value from organic matter (biowaste).

Entomo Agroindustrial has been awarded the Generacción Prize by DELOITTE and the COTEC Foundation; the Innovative SME Seal, awarded by the Directorate-General for Research of the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities; the Entrepreneur of the Year Prize (Employment, Business, Universities and Environment Department of Murcia); and the Start-Up of the Year Prize awarded by the Association of Young Entrepreneurs of the Region of Murcia.

CAPSA FOOD partners with Nortpalet to manufacture plastic pallets from recycled waste

CAPSA FOOD partners with Nortpalet to manufacture plastic pallets from recycled waste

  • With this agreement, both companies promote a sustainable recycling chain reflecting their commitment to the circular economy
  • CAPSA FOOD has reduced its waste generation by 27% and transformed 96% of it into new resources generating renewable fuels, fertilisers or new materials

CAPSA FOOD and Nortpalet, a leading manufacturer of plastic pallets, have partnered to transform the waste derived from the production of 100% recyclable plastic bottles into long-life pallets, which they use to move their products to consumption points.

These pallets are also reusable and, in the case of CAPSA, they are returned empty to the factories to be used again without going through an intermediate centre, which results in fuel and associated CO2 emission savings.

Within its commitment to caring for the environment and protecting the natural environment, the dairy company works to promote a new circular economy, where waste is transformed into new resources, avoiding waste and progressing in its goal of achieving Zero waste

The Asturias company thus drives this circular economy twice, as it not only avoids waste, it also helps to mitigate climate change.

Transformation of 96% of the waste produced

In recent years, CAPSA FOOD has reduced its waste generation by 27% and has transformed 96% of waste into new resources, generating renewable fuels, fertilisers, new materials, etc. and even solutions with high added value for other industrial and pharmaceutical processes, through its shareholding in the technological company Entomo Agroindustrial.

The material of the pallets is also recycled at the end of their long service life, reusing them for producing new plastic pallets with identical properties as the original.

Due to the extensive life cycle for this type of media, the vast majority of the material used comes from other applications, especially packaging, highlighting that the material used for packaging applications is extensively controlled at origin and guarantees excellent properties. A sustainable recycling chain is therefore generated with an extensive life cycle.
