In this interview we will have the pleasure of interviewing Francesc Vidal, Commercial Director of Costa Brava Foods. This charcuterie division, of the Cañigueral holding, has boosted its business outside the country by more than double digits, an international adventure that began in 2018, coinciding with the opening of Mercadona’s shelves to other meat suppliers. Since then, it has achieved significant penetration in different retailers and foodservice chains in countries outside the European Union.
In addition, their team’s efforts to improve their carbon footprint, an indicator that reflects the amount of greenhouse gases, are beginning to bear fruit. This year (thanks to the calculations they have made of the footprint for 2021 and 2022) they can claim a 39% reduction in their carbon footprint per unit of product compared to the previous year, indicating that they are well on the way to a greener future.
