The IFS and BRCGS certificates will enable Hola Food, whose meat processing center is located in Villacastín (Segovia), to include in the market foods that meet all product requirements: legality, authenticity, quality and safety. And also to implement an export plan to countries on different continents. Both approvals are a fully recognized guarantee for food products, since they respond to high levels of demand in terms of safety and quality carried out throughout the process.

The CEO of Grupo Alimentario Copese, José Muñoz, was very satisfied with the new certification. "This certification allows us to guarantee uniformity in food safety and quality, which translates into improved productivity, as well as to minimize risks for consumers and process efficiency," he detailed.

These certifications will be used to boost the growth of the Grupo Alimentario Copese holding company. And, they are another step towards achieving the objective of becoming one of the leading meat companies at national level during the period 2020-2025, as well as having a greater presence in foreign markets.

Hola Food, as one of the largest meat processing centers in Castilla y León, already had a strong national presence. Thanks to the certifications, a qualitative leap will be made towards foreign trade. A strategic export plan will be implemented with already authorized destinations such as: Mexico, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Brazil, South Korea and Chile. Authorization is expected for other countries such as: China and South Africa.
