Founded in 1959, Silos Canarios is the result of a concession to the company Productos y Transportes SA granted four years earlier. Its initial capacity was 6,000 tons of storage and a discharge yield of about 100 tons. These were the years in which the National Service of Agricultural Products (SENPA), under the Ministry of Agriculture, decided how cereals were distributed both for livestock and millers, for the production of flours for baking and in the Canary Islands especially for gofio. The concession left open the possibility of a future increase in the company's capacities, so Silos Canarios, some years later, in 1963, decided to expand its warehouses to 20,000 tons, doubling the unloading yield. This work was possible thanks to the growing demand for livestock feed and the need to have a stable stock in a decisive context of insularity. In 1987 there was an important change in the shareholding, with the entry of the Canarian Feed Company SA, (Capisa), along with some firms owned by it. The arrival of Capisa was transcendental for the future of Silos Canarios, because in the following years a strong renovation of its facilities, capacities and objectives was undertaken. Thus, there was a total replacement of the company's electrical installation, the safety levels were increased to the maximum and the filling operation of the 76 storage cells available at that time was automated. Already in 2000, the unloading process was modernized, moving from an exterior piping system to a discharge gantry with 280 tons of capacity per hour, which can handle both grain and flour directly from the holds of the ships inside the facility. In 2001 a new silo of 8,000 tons of capacity was added, which brought the company closer to its current yield of 30 thousand tons, which places it at the forefront in the archipelago in terms of logistics value. Silos Canarios, in this way, today is an industry at full capacity, integrated by a trained staff and proud to contribute not only to the maintenance of the business and productive structure of the Canary Islands, but also to its collaborating role of the United Nations World Food Program, which also adds a cause of great humanitarian value. Although it was created to serve as logistical support in the port to manufacturers of feed and bread flours, its vocation for development and growth now also allows it to supply cereals to the African continent and prepare for the new challenges of tomorrow. Silos Canarios is a strategic company for the Islands. It has the largest plant for maritime reception, storage, processing and distribution of cereals in the Canary Islands. The firm, integrated in Grupo Capisa, is a collaborator of the United Nations World Food Program for West Africa, sending tons of flour and grain each year. Its port terminal allows it to receive large ships and unload them, and then – if the customer requires it – reship the goods on smaller ships capable of operating in any African port. The building of Silos Canarios is emblematic in Puerto de la Luz and Las Palmas. Its peculiar architecture and dimensions make it visible from almost any point and it is often chosen as an iconic image of the docks of Gran Canaria. It houses silos with capacity for 30 thousand tons, which are filled by a system of automated pipes, which transport cereals or flours from the holds of the ships, through a discharge portico with capacity for 280 tons per hour. The system is operated using pumps that make the product travel through the pipes inside the installation, without being outdoors at any time, which guarantees zero environmental and noise pollution of the operations. Cereals and flours always pass through a unit of machines specialized in removing impurities, with a complex system of filters that prevents the exit of dust to the outside. The facility has a cereal refrigeration plant, temperature control in all cells and an automated sampling system. As for the ensacado, Silos Canarios, has five lines with a filling capacity of 2 thousand tons per day, in addition to having a very modern palletizing system. A very frequent operation is the filling of containers with bags in a time of 60 minutes per container. Along with the possibilities of recharging ships for export, the company has delivery warehouses on land, intended for regional distribution to the agri-food industry. Apart from the first pre-cleaning, Silos Canarios has specific machinery to separate all impurities from cereals, especially corn and oats due to the high demand that this service has in the Canary Islands. All these capabilities make Silos Canarios a leading company of high value for the Canarian industrial fabric, due to its logistics capabilities and the quality of its production and processes.
