OUR HISTORY

Juncà Gelatines history is one of personal endeavour, together with determination and collective enterprise.

The company was founded by the Juncà brothers; Salvador, Enric and Josep began in 1947 with the goal of manufacturing products derived from animal collagen.

In the 1950´s Juncà Gelatines began entering the food industry market for bovine and ovine derived gelatine.

In the 1960’s we consolidated our position, becoming the second plant in production capacity and the marketing of gelatine in the Spanish domestic market.

In the 1980’s Juncà Gelatines introduced pigskin as a new raw material while starting to produce collagen hydrolysates.

In the 1990’s Juncà Gelatines set out to internationalise and attract foreign markets, especially in Europe. We successfully introduced our product among the first confectionery companies, the main consumer sector of gelatine. Our products were also well received by companies in other areas of the food industry. At the same time Juncà Gelatines continued our search for new raw materials, and as a result started developing fish ingredients: fish gelatine, hydrolysed fish and fish extract.

From 2000 onwards, Juncà Gelatines consolidated the marine product line and the R&D department took on a new challenge: the development of poultry gelatine.

We undertook the modernisation and optimisation of the manufacturing system, for environmental improvement in keeping with the LIFE project.

In 2005 Juncà Gelatines signed an agreement with the FDG Group for the development of new dietary supplements with high added value.Thus was born a new range of collagen hydrolysates specially designed for dietary applications - Protesol D.

Collagen hydrolysates produced by Juncà gelatines are high purity products, and their daily consumption is very beneficial for your health.

In 2010, Juncà Gelatines faced a difficult economic situation caused by the global financial crisis. As a result, the Juncà family decided to modernise the management system of the company.

With the full support of the Juncà family, Ferran Juncà took charge of management and began a new phase focusing on the optimisation of resources and the modernisation of the manufacturing system, without losing sight of Research and Development.

We currently continue focusing our efforts on getting a better performance in both the perfecting of quality and improvement of productivity in our products.

Customer satisfaction continues to be the main objective of Juncà Gelatines, ensuring the future success of the company.
