About us

Gracomsa Alimentaria (SAU) is a Single-Shareholder Corporation that is part of Nuova Sesac, a Valencian business group developed by the Cases Monterde family who, for three generations, have been devoted to productive and industrial economy, generating over 150 direct jobs.

As a group, we are primarily and fundamentally dedicated to the food sector, but we have also developed auxiliary industries and complementary businesses engaged in port logistics and renewable energies.

Gracomsa Alimentaria was developed from our gathered experience and knowledge on the Vegetable Oils and Fats market and their treatment for food purposes.

One of our main raw materials is palm oil and, since 2014 we are RSPO (The Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil) members, an international and independent organization in charge of certifying that our supply comes from environmentally respectful farms where labour rights are observed

All our industries and facilites are found in locations near La Albufera (Valencia), a unique wetland in Europe. Enjoying this privilege means making a commitment to its sustainability. For this reason, we collaborate with Fundación Assut, an organization devoted to the defense of La Albufera nature and cultural heritage.
