Using the capital from the sale of shrimp vessels to the López Portillo government, an 8 thousand meter area was purchased, a part of it was located underwater, at the Bonfil Industrial Park, in Mazatlán, Sinaloa. The intention was to build a fish flour processing plant. This is how PINSA was born.
In March began the tuna canning as a result of a food processing agreement with Productos Pesqueros Mexicanos. The brands under the contract were Pescador, Cosecha del Mar and Economía.
Probably discouraged by how the recent tuna embargo damaged the Mexican tuna industry, VISA Monterrey GROUP put up for sale two tuna vessels. PINSA decided to purchase them and then Pesca Azteca was founded. 10 years later Pesca Azteca would become the most important tuna fishing fleet in Latin America.
With an own fleet, PINSA started manufacturing and selling the brands Mazatún and El Dorado.
PINSA established a Commercial Direction for the proper commercialization of its brands. In parallel the building of its own harbor and cold storage for raw material was finished.
In the mid-eighties PINSA quit manufacturing fish flour. The company would retake on that same activity by purchasing the company Atunes y Derivados. This is when MazIndustrial was born, a company that processes PINSA’s sub-product and then transforms it into fish flour, besides having sardine vessels for the same purpose.
PINSA starts to manufacture and commercialize the brand Dolores. Records of this brand go back to 1936.
Grupo PINSA reinforced its market position and became the most important company in Latin America. It currently has 20 tuna vessels and manufactures over 1 million cans a day.
Pinsa Comercial (PICO) was born. In October, 2011, with a new information system and independent management, the first invoice under the name Pinsa Comercial was issued.
The new POUCH package was launched. Easy to open, needs no draining, more practical and with 5 different varieties. Pinsa Comercial starts commercializing Brunswick in Mexico.
