Dairy farmers since 1968

Know our history

For more than 50 years, Feiraco has been a benchmark in the Galician dairy industry, showing that a sustainable model can be adopted in the livestock sector, thus generating employment and wealth in rural areas.

In 2017, together with the Os Irmandiños and Melisanto cooperatives, we embarked on a flagship project in the Galician cooperative movement, merging into a single cooperative: CLUN (Cooperativas Lácteas Unidas).
