CAPSA FOOD INVESTS IN INSECTS TO CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

CAPSA FOOD INVESTS IN INSECTS TO CARE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

  • The dairy company acquires a 15% stake in ENTOMO AGROINDUSTRIAL.
  • Also, as a result of this shareholding, CAPSA will launch a unique project in the Spanish dairy sector that will enable it to transform its organic waste to be integrated back into the economy, using it sustainably and profitably (circular economy).

Granda, 26 September 2019.

CAPSA FOOD has acquired a 15% stake in ENTOMO AGROINDUSTRIAL, a company that is at the forefront of technology in the circular economy sector. Reducing waste to convert it into products with high added value and thus mitigate its environmental impact is one of the great business challenges of the 21st century, to which CAPSA FOOD is dedicated with the highest commitment.

ENTOMO AGROINDUSTRIAL was founded and is led by Diego Amores and a solid scientific team, accompanied by a multidisciplinary team of professionals, all of whom are leaders in their specialist areas. Its mission is to seek industrial solutions for treating organic matter using insects. ENTOMO offers a technological solution in the field of Industrial Ecology, developing industrial projects for producing insects that enable value to be created from organic matter.

The technology is based on the use of the black soldier fly in industrial applications. Thanks to proven processes, ENTOMO offers a high conversion capacity of a large variety of bio-waste. These processes enable raw materials with low added value (bio-waste) to be transformed into raw materials with high added value. The products that this new industry can generate include those destined for the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry (peptides with antimicrobial activity, chitosan with various functions, and fatty acids with antibiotic capacity), the agri-food industry (hydrolysed flour and fats for animal food, ecological compost) and livestock, among others. It is a mouldable technology that can be adapted for use by many kinds of businesses from restaurants to supermarkets or industrial processing plants.

ENTOMO AGROINDUSTRIAL’s immediate agenda is to open the first European Research Centre for the studying of the use of insects as bioconverters. The 400 m2 facility, into which €500,000 has been invested, will begin its activities in October in Cehegín (Murcia), endorsed by the European Commission and Spanish scientific institutions. This centre is designed to carry out a wide variety of validations on all types of industrial waste, and thus create appropriate technology transfer models for a wide variety of customers. This centre also allows experimenting with new technologies to optimise processes and generate new production systems.

In this sense, CAPSA FOOD, in addition to taking a shareholding stake, will develop a technological and industrial project together with ENTOMO to transform its waste and integrate it back into the economy, giving it value and thus reducing environmental impact.

Recently, ENTOMO AGROINDUSTRIAL and SEMILLA Ipstar, a MELiSSA technology transfer member, an international space research consortium led by the European Space Agency, have been working together to accelerate the transition to a circular society by developing technologies designed for space missions.

The FlyCycle collaborative project has also been launched, which enables the technology to be exported to Colombia and India with the main objective of implementing a system that can treat various types of organic waste produced in the cities and industries of South America and Asia. Collaboration strategies with government entities, research centres and private companies have been established to provide alternative tools for treating urban organic matter generated in these countries, improving their waste management strategies.

ENTOMO AGROINDUSTRIAL’s recognitions include the Generation Award organised by DELOITTE and the COTEC Foundation, the Innovative SME Seal, awarded by the General Directorate of Research of the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Employment, Company Counselling, Universities and Environment of Murcia) and the Murcia Region Young Entrepreneurs Association’s Start-up of the Year Award.

CAPSA FOOD ORGANISES ITS 4TH HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELL-BEING WEEK

CAPSA FOOD ORGANISES ITS 4TH HEALTH, SAFETY AND WELL-BEING WEEK

  • Workers will receive information about glaucoma and stroke prevention and smoking cessation
  • In addition to the usual blood donation campaign, workshops on healthy eating, road safety, yoga and “happiness, health and good humour” will be held
  • A charity race will be run through the Granda facilities and the number of kilometres run will be converted into litres of milk for the ‘Ningún Niño Sin Cenar’ (No Child Without Dinner) association
  • Proceeds from registrations in the activities will be donated to the Asociación Freno al Ictus (Stop Stroke Association)

September 25, 2019.- From Monday 23 to Sunday 29 September, Capsa Food will host the 4th Health, Safety and Well-being Week with which the company has been promoting its philosophy to employees for years that good nutrition is key to maintaining health, as part of a healthy lifestyle, and positively influences people’s well-being.

During the week, employees can participate in various activities: Yoga, smoking cessation, stroke prevention campaign, glaucoma prevention campaign, happiness workshop, stress test and blood donation. On the weekend, the dairy company invites employees to participate with their family and friends.

On Saturday 28th, one of the main days of the week’s activities, the day will begin with a Healthy Breakfast and a healthy eating workshop entitled “How to read a label”. Afterwards, children and adults can participate in Road Safety activities, adapted by age: road safety circuit, driving simulators, augmented reality glasses, etc. At 12:00, the Fun Run will begin. First the children will take off, who will run along the Healthy Trail that CAPSA has designated in its Granda facilities, and then the adults will run a 3.3 km circuit through the work centre.

This initiative has a triple social purpose. The proceeds from entry registrations will be donated to the Asociación Freno al Ictus (Stroke Prevention Association) and the number of kilometres of the race run, as well as those of the hiking route planned for Sunday, will be converted into litres of milk that will be donated to the “Ningún niño sin cenar” (No Child Without Dinner) association.

The Health, Safety and Well-being Week will end on Sunday with a walking outing for families.

Promoting knowledge about good nutrition and the importance of physical activity as fundamental elements for healthier people is one of the major focal points of Capsa’s Corporate Social Responsibility plan, through which employees and their families are offered the opportunity to acquire and maintain healthy habits outside of and within the work environment. Within the Exemplary Employer framework, the company works on four areas that impact health and well-being: healthy eating, health programmes, emotional well-being and physical activity.

CAPSA FOOD is the first company in the Spanish dairy sector to achieve the AENOR Healthy Company certificate, which accredits a healthy work environment that fosters work/life balance, equality, improved healthy eating habits and physical activity within and outside of the company. It also won the NAOS award three times, awarded by the Spanish Agency for Consumer Affairs, Food Safety and Nutrition, for its “commitment to healthy and natural food”, and in 2015 it obtained the Top Employers award and the Fade Human Resources Management award, among others.

CAPSA FOOD HAS HIRED RUBEN HIDALGO TO LEAD THE INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURIAL ECOSYSTEM WITH THE OBJECTIVE OF BUILDING SOLUTIONS AND SERVICES IN THE WELL-BEING AND HEALTH SEGMENT

The change of consumers’ mentality worldwide, motivated by a concern about food and its impact on health and on the planet, together with the company’s mission to offer natural products and services that improve people’s health and quality of life, have taken CAPSA FOOD one step further in its strategy by creating its own innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem that will be led by Ruben Hidalgo as he joins the company as Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Ecosystems. A Chemical Engineer specialising in Organisation and Processes, he was the Director of the Technological Science Park and of GIJON IMPULSA (Centro Municipal de Empresas de Gijón, S.A.) in recent years. He also contributes to the Cotec Foundation for innovation and the Advanced Leadership Foundation.

The purpose of this new project, which will be presented this autumn, is to participate in a new generation of food and nutrition services that improve well-being and health through biotechnology and science.

And, faithful to its commitment to Asturias, CAPSA FOOD will also drive its relationship with Asturias agents involved in research, innovation and entrepreneurship projects to find new opportunities for providing value through collaboration and open innovation.

In the words of José Armando Tellado, General Manager: “CAPSA looks forward to 2030 thinking about what the food that people need will be like; how will people acquire the nutrients they need and through what foods, in what format and under what experiences? This will be an extraordinary journey, led by Ruben Hidalgo, in which CAPSA seeks to contribute value for the company as well as for all of society in general and Asturias in particular.”
