CAPISA is a leading company in the manufacture of livestock feeds in the Canary Islands. It is part of Grupo Capisa -together with another nine companies – and is dedicated essentially to the import and marketing of ingredients and the manufacture and sale of compound feeds for animals.

In 1994, the Company had a new plant built with a higher production capacity and it is currently fitted with leading-edge machinery and technology both in production and quality systems. This means that it is now the only company in the sector in the Canary Islands with the ISO9001 Certificate.
