Remembering Virgilio: A friend of Texas Peanuts

Posted on January 23, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to a friend of the Texas Peanut industry, Don Virgilio Elizodo. Being the founder of Elizondo Agroaliments and FRICOSEL, Virgilio can be described as a leader, visionary, and guiding light of the peanut industry.

Virgilio played an essential role in establishing a relationship with Texas and Mexico and his efforts led Mexico to become the most crucial market for US peanuts. 

Virgilio’s influence extended far beyond business as he was a mentor and a friend to many in the peanut industry. He often served as a source of inspiration to those around him due to his distinct dedication and commitment to the peanut industry. 

Virgilio’s legacy will continue to impact future generations. 

Rest in peace, my friend.
