Our company was founded 50 years ago, being one of the protagonists in the meat market.
However, large-scale development occurred in 1999 due to a change in its management and operations. This positioned the company as a leader in the supply of beef to the local market and international market.
It is a family company. The founding grandfather was born in Palma de Mallorca, who worked as a butcher. Then his son continued the job of a butcher and started slaughtering animals and selling to local distribution markets complemented by a chain of butcher shops. Then a third generation, Carlos and Roberto Riusech who are current shareholders of the company Frigorífico Gorina, have increased the volume of business for the company working with big supermarkets and processing industries. Then a fourth generation, Carlos and Mariela Riusech, who are currently managing accountants for Frigorífico Gorina.
This evolution was consolidated in 1999 with the acquisition of an industrial plant currently based in the City of La Plata. Frigorifico Gorina is now a main beef exporter for the country of Argentina representing 14% to 16% of total exports of fresh, chilled, and frozen Argentine meat.
