In 1977, the company was acquired by Costa Rican investors and began operating under a family management, using the brand El Arreo to commercialize its products.

The company quickly developed into one of the leaders in the Costa Rican beef business and in the year of 1990 decided to expand its local operations building a plant for the production of pork using the brand name Camsa.
