The next Agriculture
We share queries with producers and farmers in all our business lines.
We specialize in the trading of cereals and other Spanish agricultural products with the flour, semolina or malting industry (Food division) and the animal feeding industry (Feed division).
We are closely linked to the national producer, as we provide them with all kinds of inputs (seeds, fertilizers, phytosanitary products...) and services (advice, financing...), thanks to our cross-selling system. This, allows us to control and ensure traceability on the final product we supply to the industry.
In addition, we grow cereals for both human and animal consumption, as well as seeds, certified in different degrees (R1 and R2), which allows us to put ourselves in our farmers' shoes.
A little bit of history
Candelo is born
José Martínez, better known by his family nickname, "Candelo", and his wife, Isabel Luján, decide to buy a Pegaso truck, and build a 700m2 warehouse in Fuentealbilla (Albacete).
They begin to buy the cereal from local farmers, to generate activity linked to its storage, transport and sale to feed manufacturers.
Antonio Martínez, the eldest of the two children, joins at full capacity, after finishing his BMA studies.
The 2nd son joins in
The second son, Pedro Martínez, joins the family project. That PegasO Europa truck has turned into a road transport agency, with a fleet of over forty trucks.
