Jealsa is a family business based in Galicia and founded in 1958 with its central headquarters located in Boiro (La Coruña – Spain). We are dedicated to manufacturing and distribution of canned seafood and fish. In these over 60 years of history, there have been many achievements attained by the Galician canning company. The innovation, sustainability and commitment to diversification of the company are the principal axes on which the growth of Jealsa is based.
Today, it is integrated by 23 companies, grouped in four areas of activity:
- Fishing and Services
- Circular Economy
Canned Fish and Seafood
Thanks to our commitment to diversification and innovation, we have become the top Spanish canning company and the second in Europe. In addition to producing our brands as Rianxeira, Escurís, Mare Aperto or Robinson Crusoe, we produce for well known distribution brands, both in Spain and internationally.
Customised culinary solutions, generally focussed on the hotel/restaurant industry and large catering groups. Products prepared are based on tuna (hamburgers, nuggets, fillets) and other products from the sea.
During the last 20 years we have been working to develop healthy and natural pet foods. In addition to producing our own brands DogSelect and CatSelect, we are manufacturers for recognised international brands.

3) CIRCULAR ECONOMY
As a basis for building a sustainable future for all, in Jealsa we have developed a Circular Economy structure to divide and isolate the different active principles in our raw materials. Once the fish arrives at our facilities, it is a matter of responsibility to seek maximum use.
In Jealsa we only use very selected parts of the fish in the production process of our products. The remaining waste is used entirely for other activities. This raw material is intended for several companies of the Corporation such as Pet Select, Conresa and Valora Marine Ingredients. There the raw material is converted and transformed into high quality products for such dynamic industries as pharmaceutical, cosmetic, aquaculture, pet food and even functional ingredients.
The fact of being the main generator of the raw materials consumed by our subsidiaries allows us to have a rigorous traceability system that allows us to adapt to the highest demands of each and every one of our clients and to the strict regulations regarding food security.
Thanks to our recovery ecosystem and the application of Marine Biorefinery techniques, we are able to take advantage of 100% of the fish that arrive at our facilities and only use technologies that respect the product and the environment in the industrialization phase.
We have two co-generation plants [Boinersa and DDR] and different interests in wind farm projects.
