Ingredalia reinforces its internationalisation in United States, Germany, France and United Kingdom


The Navarrese start-up specialising in the development and production of natural functional ingredients from vegetable by-products recently obtained the IFS quality certificate. A seal that, according to its managers, will allow them to access, within the North American market, “important clients that serve large supermarkets”. It is not the only milestone that a company that has managed to increase its sales in 2023 by 150 % after closing this year with a total production of 100 kilos of broccoli products.

The CEO of Ingredalia, Miguel Ángel Cubero, will lead the commercial expansion of the company in the United States, after identifying opportunities during his participation last year in the fair Natural Products Expo West. With a growing demand both in the human and pet food market, the company has already established contacts to introduce its products in this market. In addition, to strengthen its presence in Europe, the company has also recruited two sales profiles to drive its strategy in countries such as Germany, France and the UK.

In parallel to its expansion plans, Ingredalia aims to launch two new products derived from thistle and artichoke in 2025, thus expanding its product line that currently includes ingredients derived from broccoli. In addition, the company continues to advance research and development projects, such as Crescere, CircFood and Sano, focused on obtaining new plant proteins, valorising plant by-products and demonstrating the benefits of broccoli bioactive compounds respectively.

To support their growth projects, the managers of this Navarrese start-up announced upcoming investments in equipment worth approximately 800,000 euros. These technical improvements will be integrated into the company’s future production plant, which will be built on land set aside within Trasa’s current facilities in Milagro, with an estimated investment of between 2 and 3 million euros. The company also expects to reach a turnover of close to €1 million this year and will collaborate with other startups in the specialised ingredients sector in Spain through the Food and Agri Tech Europe (FATE) platform, to strengthen this market and foster its growth.
