our founder

Benjamin Espuny Solsona

Born in the year 1935, Benjamin Espuny Solsona, after completing his doctorate in physical-chemical industrial engineering, in 1965 he moved to Ibros, in the olive-producing heart of the province of Jaén, and founded the company RIOSA.

Coming from a Catalan oil family established in Andalusia for several generations, whose first oil factories went back to his great-grandfather at the dawn of the 19th century, from a very young age he had learned the trade with his family, growing up in a culture of businessmen, entrepreneurs and industrial.

From the first moment he develops innovative production processes, seeking to apply technology to the traditional processes that he had learned as a young man.

He then began to develop olive oil products for animal feed, a field that was unexplored at the time. Thus, he began to create a line of lipid products, applied to animal nutrition, which has been enormously successful in the sector ever since, mainly due to his constant search for the best quality and adaptation of the product to the biological characteristics of each animal. type of cattle.

During his career at the head of RIOSA, he published numerous articles in livestock and research magazines on the application of lipids to animal nutrition, making him a renowned scientist in the sector.

Benjamin passed away in 2006, working until the day before as was the custom in his family, but his children continue his work following the path and guidelines set by him.

We take quality levels where others cannot reach
