In 2021, the company recorded a turnover of 52.2 million euros, the sixth largest in Spain. It also employs more than 800 people at its production centres in the region, La Rioja and Castilla La-Mancha. “I want to concentrate my decisions and employment in Navarre”. This is how its owner, the manager and businessman from Navarre, Eduardo López, justified the change of registered office.
Precisely, López placed the transfer of his company within an asset sale operation carried out two years ago. At that time, the Riberebro Group transferred its canned mushroom business to the Riojan cooperative Eurochamp for 14 million euros.
López decided at that time to sell Eurochamp both the company’s goodwill and the logistics centre located in Alfaro from which it operated. On the other hand, he kept the most important part of a company that currently employs 800 people, 200 of whom work in the region.
The Riberebro Group, in this sense, currently brings together the brands Gvtarra (leader in glass vegetables with a proven track record of more than 110 years of history), Ja’e (cooked pulses which has been in existence for 55 years) and Ayecue (a subsidiary specialising in the management and manufacture of fresh mushrooms).
