Rubí (ACN).- On its 75th anniversary, Gallina Blanca has demonstrated the keys to its success: innovation and the study of the healthy properties of food. Artur Mas, President of the Catalan Government, highlighted Gallina Blanca as an example of good business practices and how to fight speculation. On the 75th anniversary of the company, Mas said, “a case like this helps to keep hopes for growth in Catalonia going, which is wracked by worries and people’s anger because of the mishandling of the current economic situation”. Gallina Blanca is an example of how to fight the financial crisis and send an optimistic message out to people.
The company has recently been taking part in the ‘Henufood project’, which tries to show how certain foods have beneficial properties in relation to the prevention of cardiovascular illnesses. Since 2010, some €24 million, €7 million of which belongs to Gallina Blanca, have been invested in this project. The Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation has funded 44% of the project.
