ELPOZO ALIMENTACIÓN has received the Acocex Bankia Award for its international achievements as a pioneer in exporting meat products and being present in 82 countries.
The Professional Association of Foreign Trade (Acocex) and Bankia held the second edition of their awards for internationalisation yesterday in which ELPOZO ALIMENTACIÓN was recognised together with Grupo Hedisa, Pisamonas, Gioseppo, la Feria de Madrid-Ifema, Moyca, the ‘Empresa Exterior’ journalist Nahjla Isaacs and the head of Internationalisation of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Valladolid, Ana Atienza.
The award ceremony took place in the Lázaro Galdiano Museum in Madrid with the presence of the president of Acocex, Rafael Cascales, and the corporate director of SMEs of Bankia, Juan Luis Vidal Álvarez-Ossorio. Cascales said that the internationalisation of the Spanish company is causing “an export growth rate of around 9 per cent year-on-year” and highlighted that capital goods, food and consumer product manufacturers are the most buoyant.
ELPOZO ALIMENTACIÓN began to export in 1988, the same year in which it opened the national market. Its milestones include being the first Spanish company to sell fuet to Japan, being the pioneer in opening commercial offices abroad and for adapting its products to the needs of each market.
