A family background and a global future

Our origins date back to the 1940s, with a business that sold pig livestock.

Over the years, the business grew and was passed down from generation to generation until slaughtering and cutting were added to livestock production in the 1990s. 

Today, led by the Samper family, we cover all pork production chain processes and we have diversified our business areas with renewable energy activities, rural estates and hardwood tree planting.
