ICP, the world's only producer of organic natural casings

The International Casing Products (ICP), a Spanish company based in Zaragoza, has achieved the title of the world's first producer of organic natural casings. Recently, the company has boosted its catalogue with new references. In this sense, ICP expands its offer of ecological products with the launch of the semi-curled casing.
"In this way, the company provides a service to manufacturers of black pudding, sobrasada and similar products that are committed to a 100% organic product, unlike those that use conventional casing. This product complements its current offer of organic fine casing. It should be noted that, with this commitment, ICP becomes the only producer of organic natural casing in the world," announced the company in a press release.
Over the last 5 years, ICP has gone from producing 4.5 million casings to the more than 10 million pieces, maintaining a double-digit growth rate in recent years. The company has its own calibration workshop in Zaragoza, through which it controls the traceability of the product, offering its customers an extra level of guarantee, versatility and customization.

Due to its international vocation, the sales figure in the domestic market represented 6.7% of its turnover four years ago, has increased this figure to 11.2% during the last year as a result of the introduction of new products of natural casing oriented towards national sausage manufacturers.
ICP was founded in September 2012 and it's part of Vall Companys Group. The company has 8 production plants located in each of the slaughterhouses from which the raw material is obtained, as well as modern and innovative facilities located in Mercazaragoza, next to the Terminal Marítima de Zaragoza. Today, ICP processes more than 10 million natural casings, intended for the production of cooked and cured sausages, and sells offal products and Iberian meat that are delivered to more than 30 countries around the world. Likewise, it works hand in hand with pharmaceutical industries, to which, after the corresponding quality audits, it supplies different items that serve as raw material for the manufacture of medicines, such as insulin or heparin. Finally, as part of the ambitious commitment to the circular economy that prevails in the Vall Companys Group, ICP takes advantage of certain by-products as ingredients for the production of fats, butter, feed and pet food.
