Carmen Urbano visits Defeder

A few weeks ago we had a pleasant visit, at our Monzón facilities, from the General Director of Promotion and Agri-Food Innovation, Carmen Urbano.

Joaquín Saila, founding partner of Defeder together with his brother Raúl, and Juan Monter, Director of Operations, were wonderful hosts, explaining how the company's facilities and projections work.

Due to the large investments that we are carrying out in 2022, due to the annual growth of the 40% that the company is experiencing, and due to its international projection, Carmen Urbano wanted to know first-hand everything we are doing.

2021 has been a year in which Defeder has consolidated its leadership in the organic fertilizer segment in Spain and France, the main markets for the company, which is strongly internationalized and we want to take the Aragón brand to markets such as Latin America.

The result of this impulse towards foreign trade have been the two awards that we have received over the past year: the Company award for Internationalization from the Huesca Chamber of Commerce and the second prize for internationalization from the Huesca SME of the Year awards. of the Santander Bank.

In addition, Carmen Urbano was able to learn in detail about the latest projects of R+D+i based on the line of work of animal nutrition and petfood.

One of the innovations that most interested Carmen Urbano was the new factory, Inaugurated in 2019, it has a constructed area of 14,500 square meters and his investment has been more than 4 million euros. These facilities have been built under an industry 4.0 orientation, in search of a competitive improvement, maintaining its commitment to sustainability within the framework of the circular economy.

These investments will allow us to improve the productivity, quality and differentiation of our products, consolidating and promoting job creation, emphasizing the values of sustainability, care for the environment and social commitment.

“Our food is also the result of how we treat our land” Carmen Urbano commented in her farewell after seeing first-hand the entire general project and the values of Defeder.
