Joining forces

Because we are responsible

At Grup Cañigueral we are committed to our social and environmental surroundings, and as a socially responsible company we apply our own working procedures going beyond what is required by law.

This is what we do with our best practices for optimising water consumption, reusing materials and reducing energy consumption. We also implement our environmental management system based on Standard UNE-EN ISO 14001:2004.

We have a very special commitment to hiring people who are vulnerable and at risk of social exclusion, and we aim to double the percentage required by law. This meant we have twice won the Incorpora Prize from the La Caixa Bank’s Obra Social Foundation: Embutidos Monter in 2014 and Costa Brava Foods in 2016.

We encourage health and sport. In the case of health, we support the Pediatric Cancer Center, a pioneering space in Europe for treating and researching childhood cancers, led by the San Joan de Déu Hospital in Barcelona.

We see sport as a means of improving physical health and teaching moral values and we support initiatives to promote it. For example, grassroots football, supporting numerous clubs in the province of Girona.

We support initiatives such as the Oncotrail foundation charity run, a team run organised by the Oncolliga Girona Foundation with the aim of raising funds for cancer research and improving the quality of life of cancer patients. We also support our staff cricket team, and the Frigorifics Costa Brava women's cycling team that competes at the elite, junior, youth and children’s levels. 

Inteaching and research, we are patrons of the Advanced Polytechnic School at the University of Girona, which we also collaborate with in studies on subjects such as pig genetics. We collaborate with the Complutense University of Madrid in the VAV network with the aim of analysing residues of medications in livestock.

We are committed to training young people. As part of the Kreas Foundation, we encourage dual training, in the classroom and the company, to provide qualifications for workers in the meat sector. 

We are patrons of the Creativación Foundation, which has the mission of developing creativity in children through educational pathways in schools.
