Ramaders Agrupats has undergone many changes since 1982, as it has gone from being a small cooperative to become the complete meat-processing complex it is today. Below we give a brief summary of our history, highlighting the most significant dates.
Our activity began as the union of 39 farmers who bred and selected livestock on their farms. Shortly afterwards, we opened a butchers’ shop to sell our products
The company’s first installations began working, located in a former cold meat factory which we purchased during this period
By now we had our own distribution network (with two refrigerated vehicles) and five butchers’ shops: three in Felanitx, one in Portocolom and another one in Campos
The new European directives called for big changes in our installations and we decided to embark upon a great project: the construction of a new factory
We negotiated with Felanitx council to prevent the closure of the municipal slaughterhouse. It was primarily our company that took charge of modernising it to ensure it fulfilled regulations, and subsequently of running it
The new installations were set in motion as a result of the project that commenced in 1990. They had a surface area of 1,200 square metres. We took advantage of the space to incorporate new machinery and the latest technology.
The new slaughterhouse was certified. As part of the renovation work, a tunnel was built so that the slaughtered livestock could be brought to our factory automatically without any need for handling or transportation
We inaugurated an extension to our factory – a further 600 square metres of surface area – so as to be able to introduce new production lines: meat packaging with protective atmosphere, meat preparations and cutting and packaging of cold meats
