Torre de Núñez closes the year 2020 with a sales growth of 11.6%
The meat company increases its international presence by exporting to Mexico and Venezuela and will soon complete the expansion of its plant in O Corgo.
The company Torre de Núñez continues to grow and increase its presence in the international market. After the close of the previous fiscal year, the meat products company reported growth of 11.6%, bringing its turnover to €30 million. This growth was based on two of the company's strategic pillars. On the one hand, the good performance of the brand in the food channel and, on the other hand, its expansion into new markets.
At the beginning of 2020, before the outbreak of the health crisis, the company had set itself the goal of increasing its international presence in new markets. "We have achieved this despite the circumstances in a highly complex environment marked by the pandemic," says José Manuel Núñez, CEO of Torre de Núñez. "The company's intention is to continue conquering new international markets, as has happened this year with Mexico and Venezuela," he says.
Today, 10% of Torre de Núñez's production is exported to the international market. Its products are present in 27 countries around the world. From Japan to Panama, from the Dominican Republic to Norway; Germany, Cuba, Moldavia, Italy, the Philippines, Guatemala, Peru and now also Mexico and Venezuela.
O Corgo expansion work
The expansion work on the ham dryer located in the O Corgo industrial park is nearing completion. Since 2020, with an investment of €1.5 million, the company has taken a giant step forward in consolidating its production capacity; in addition to the expansion of the drying room, there is a new boning room, ham preparation for slicing, wrapping and packaging, a natural cellar and a refrigeration chamber for a minimum stock of 300 pallets of product.
This expansion culminates the investment process initiated by the company in 2012 in that industrial park and which has involved more than 10 million euros to complete a capacity in its drying room of 450,000 pieces in stay and in its slicing plant of 9,000,000 envelopes per year.
The company currently has 30 jobs at its production center in Corgo, for a total of 120 direct jobs in its organization.
