Vall Companys breaks the ceiling of €2 billion in turnover

Vall Companys is now the second-largest producer of pork in the EU, after a 15% growth in production reported for 2019, mainly to respond to increased demand from China. 4.8 million pigs were processed last year by the Spanish Group, resulting in 386,000 tonnes of pork delivered in the market.
2019 was the first year when the Group broke the ceiling of €2 billion in turnover, a double income than the one reported in 2011. Part of the result was achieved due to the increase in pork prices in Spain (+48%) and more volumes shipped to China. The Group invested €13.4 million in research & development and expansion of its production facilities.
Vall Companys is a fully verticalized group that controls the entire chain, from farm to fork. Through the integration system, it has 2,105 production farms as well as feed factories, slaughterhouses, cutting rooms, veterinary and logistics companies.
