In Congalsa we are strongly committed to Sustainability Policies, among them a strong commitment to reduce our environmental impact stands out . This time, it materializes through the installation a new photovoltaic plant.
This new facility aims to provide energy to the production center of A Pobra, in which about 25,000 tons of frozen food tarheting HORECA and RETAIL channels are produced every year.
With this new photovoltaic solar energy generation system, we completed a project that began in 2016 with the installation of 533 solar panels in our factory of gluten-free products, with an annual capacity to generate clean energy above 285,000 Kwh.
One of the goals set out in the United Nations 2030 agenda is, explicitly, to put an end to unsustainable fishing practices. In Congalsa we are committed to the cause, and for several years we have been part of the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) initiative to control the risks caused by fishing and aquaculture. The SFP organization leads global fisheries improvement projects, educating and advising stakeholders in the supply chain, including major retailers, restaurant chains, seafood brand owners, buyers, producers and fisheries management or scientific institutions to improve fishing and aquaculture practices and policies.
Nearly 200 people participated in the III Andaina Solidaria de Congalsa, which covered a route of approximately 10 kilometers through the Corrubedo area and culminated with the collection of more than 650 kilos of food to the benefit of the Friends of Galicia Foundation.
