About us

Raw Trade, S.L. is a company founded in 2006 by the Barrera family, a family with more than 80 years of presence and experience in the fertilizer industry in Spain. Our origins date back to 1940, with the creation and management in the Canary Islands of Industrias Químicas Canarias S.A. by Don Ismael Barrera Juan for the production and marketing of Superphosphates and NPKs fertilizers. Later, in 1950, the Compañia Insular del Nitrogeno S.A. (CINSA) was founded in Las Palmas to produce Ammonium Sulfate. His son Don Jose Vicente Barrera Picó would follow in his footsteps as the General Manager of up to 5 factories spread all around Spain. Currently, Raw Trade S.L. is managed by their successors and is involved in the following activities:

  • Trading of commodities and raw materials: fertilizers, bauxite, sulfur, animal forages and cementitious products (Clinker, cement, slag, gypsum, limestone …).
  • Chartering of ships.
  • Import and distribution of fertilizers in Spain.
