COFRUTOS S.A EXPORT
ESTABLISHMENT OF INTERAL, S.A.
After leaving Starlux a fe!!!w years before, Franco Rossi established INTERAL in Pasajes, very near to the current facilities, and created the brand CHAMBO, which was introduced to the collective community market (schools, hospitals, prisons, military and police barracks…).
INTERAL SPREADS THE CHAMBO BRAND THROUGHOUT ALL OF SPAIN
Interal The 70s
During the 70s, the selection was developed and complemented with a series of products from third-party companies. A network of representatives was consolidated on the national market, and we began paying attention to the disorganised retail market in Spain in place at that time.
At the end of the decade, we invested in new production lines to manufacture bouillon cubes.

EXPORTATION ACTIVITY BEGINS.
Interal in 1980
Our first exportations to the European and African market, our broths reached markets such as Egypt and West Africa.
Thanks to the company’s strong growth, capacity amplification projects were carried out. Mr Rossi invited new shareholders and the company’s equity was increased.
Interal began manufacturing distributor brands.
DISTRIBUTION CHAINS ARRIVE.
Interal The 90s
In parallel fashion with the development of distribution Chains in Spain, we modernised our facilities to take on the challenge of developing distributor brand products. The result of all of these efforts was a new automated manufacturing plant, inaugurated in 1999.
QUALITY, INVESTMENT AND GROWTH
We continued with our investment and personnel training rhythm to meet the ever-increasing requirements of our international clients. Traceability, food safety and IFS and BRC certifications were implemented. The quality team went from 2 to 13 people.
Growth was constant, along with hiring personnel and new production lines. At the end of the decade, we were more than 115 people.
FIRST LIQUID FACTORY
In response to new consumer habits looking for more convenient and healthy solutions, Interal built a new totally automated factory with the latest technology to create a new selection of Doy-Pack products, ready to be heated and consumed, kept at room temperature and microwavable.
In a few years, more than 7 million units were produced.
We continue to work with a strong investment policy. Our purpose is to offer solutions that are appropriate for each and every one of our clients. More than anything else, we hedge our bets on innovation and developing new products.
At Interal, we develop, manufactue and package bouillons, soups, condiments, sauces and other prepared foodstuffs, both in liquid and dehydrated form, under the most demanding international standards. We offer a complete range of products with recipes and formats adapted to industrial, Hotel and Restaurant and retail channels.
We have 3 production plants with different technologies (to preserve foodstuffs): dehydration, sterilisation for Doy Pack and UHT for Tetra. All of them are certified under BRC and IFS criteria, respecting the site in accordance with the ISO14001 standard and guaranteeing a working environment that is both demanding and careful with personnel.
We guarantee punctual service where the flexibility, reactivity and involvement of a relatively small organisation go hand-in-hand with the capability and trustworthiness of a large company.
The experience gained over the years has placed us as one of the reference-point companies throughout the world for distribution chains and large multi-national foodstuff companies in developing projects under their brands. Interal is a serious, trustworthy partner who guarantees the stability of the projects wherein they participate, as well as their clients’ peace of mind.
Our R+D department works both on adapting recipes to the tastes and needs of each market and on their own innovation projects.
Continuous improvement plays a role at Interal from the project conception phase all the way to delivery at our clients’ homes.
Today, Interal’s products are present in more than 35 countries, spread out of 4 continents. This multi-cultural setting provides us with a source of knowledge and learning that we apply to our work and product-development method.
International presence has always been important for INTERAL. This is why we take part in reference-point and distributor brand fairs in the food industry.
