Zendal expands its commitment to co-innovation in animal health and invests in the start-up Innogando

The Zendal group has formalized its commitment with the start-up Innogando, with a first investment aimed at the co-creation of specialized devices that improve livestock productivity. This commitment of Zendal to Innogando reinforces the project of the Galician startup that has been highlighted in the Ranking of the Best 100 Startups in Spain 2021 for its work in the fields of technology applied to the livestock sector and mobility.

For Zendal, this alliance is part of a broader project, which includes collaboration with other emerging companies and confirms the Porriño-based biotech company’s commitment to co-innovation and digital transformation in the world of health and wellness. In the words of its CEO Andrés Fernandez, “the support to Innogando reflects our commitment to research and development in the areas of human and animal health, with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of life and well-being“.

Improve livestock productivity
Innogando’s project was created in response to a demand for digitization of the livestock sector. In this case, to improve the quality of life of professionals through the technologization of many systems and at the same time increase the profitability of their farm and enhance animal welfare.

Among its most outstanding developments is Rumi, a GPS location system for livestock that monitors the animal’s status in real time and compiles all the information in an App so that the user can access it when needed.

The good reception of this product has allowed a rapid growth of the company, which now has a staff of 10 people and sales nationwide. Therefore, “in the short term, our main challenges are to continue growing, for which we will strengthen our commercial network at national level and we will prepare ourselves to make a leap towards international sales, since this time we have seen the need for this type of services and others that we are already working on.“said Innogando’s CEO, Elio Lopez.
