HISTORY

It all started in the 80s in a small family farm, with the objective to improve the meat quality of a small livestock Co-operative of Cardona (Barcelona), as well as to reduce health risks. One of the Co-operative members was Maria Àngels Rial, who is now a successful businesswoman heading one of the leading companies in the world dealing in artificial swine insemination.
