Quality

For years, energy self-sufficiency has been one of our primary objectives. In the quest for this independence and a zero carbon footprint, we have generated our own electricity since 2011, using an energy model that meets the demands of a refrigerated hall with a 3,000-pallet capacity.

We work towards people’s well-being

La Unión has three microbiological, agronomic and multi-residue laboratories with state-of-the-art equipment, guaranteeing the highest standards of quality and food safety in our products.

Every year we carry out more than 64,000 analyses aimed at ensuring the health of all our consumers.
