L. Pernía is a family-owned company that has been involved since its creation in recycling processes and resource reuse. Our company is a pioneer in collecting byproducts of the brewing industry, helping the first national brewers to make a responsible management of their products.

The Early Years
During the Spanish Civil War, Lucio Pernia lived in Santander and went on to manage his own dairy. It was then that he realized the effectiveness of brewer’s spent grain as cattle feed, and began collecting it from local brewers. After the Civil War, in 1939, he moved to Madrid, and then founded his transportation company, at first, carrying all kinds of materials. Recalling its origin as a farmer, in addition to the properties of brewers’ spent grain as food for cows, he decided to bet on the transportation of BSG, having the brewery Hijos de C. Mahou as his first customer, located at Calle Amaniel, 29 , in Madrid.

Pernía S.A. has become a national leader in the collection and distribution of brewers’ spent grain, having collected more than 80,000 tons a year and serving over one hundred satisfied customers nationally and internationally.
