The harvesting method is fully mechanised and the olives go directly from the tree to the oil mill without ever touching the ground. Their main harvest is ARBEQUINA, but they also cultivate Arbosana, Koroneiki, Empeltre and Picual. Harvesting commences at the end of October when the olives are beginning to ripen.

LASHERMANAS

Las Hermanas er en familiebedrift stiftet i 1940 som lager røkt paprika (PIMENTÒN DE LA VERA). Målet deres er å tilby et kvalitetsprodukt som kunder setter pris på.
Las Hermanas var pionerer i sin nisje og moderniserte innpakningen som brukes på dagens produkt med et attraktivt og innovativt design. De bruker en ny teknologi kalt Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP) for å kontrolle og følge opp hvert steg i produksjonen. Las Hermanas kan love kvalitet til sine kunder, da de kan skilte med sertifiseringen IFS (International Featured Standards).
Den røkte paprikaen Las Hermanas, eller «det autentiske røde gull», er berømt for sin enestående kvalitet, som oppnås gjennom et nøye utvalg og tørking av paprika før den videreforedles og pakkes. Paprikaen dyrkes i den lille regionen «La Vera» i Cáceres (Extremadura). Takket være det fuktige mikroklimaet i Cáceres tørkes ikke paprikaen helt ut på naturlig vis og for å dehydrere den fullstendig brukes eikeved. Dette er hemmeligheten bak paprikaens karakteristiske røkte smak, aroma og farge.

SERRATS

José Serrats was founded in 1890 in Bermeo (Biscay), probably is one of the oldest companies in Basque Land. He was an entrepreneur from Catalonia, who pioneered the use of the Appert preserving system for fish preserves,.

Dedicated originally to the salting and semi preserving of anchovies, over time other types of fish from the Gulf of Biscay began to be preserved by the company. This resulted in a need to expand and a facility was built in Elantxobe (Biscay), Pasajes (Guipuzcoa), Asturias, and Galicia, and eventually their own fishing fleet. Eventually this was given up to focus completely on the industrialization of the company.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, more than half of the production of the various products made by “Serrats” and “La Pescadora” have been exported. The primary markets that they exported to were France and South America. Currently the largest markets are Europe and North America.
Originally wood barrels were the primary tool used for the salting and pickling of the fish. After the beginning of the 20th century, a better understanding the Appert system of sterilization gave way to the use of cans that could be tightly sealed.

Finally glass jars for fish preserves were introduced in the 80’s.
Over all these years, the production process has changed very little. The technique has been perfected to achieve a higher quality product, but the traditional process of production has been maintained.
Our preserves continue being elaborated by a meticulous handmade similar to the process used in 1890. These artisanal techniques prevent the fish from losing quality and make our preserves maintain our high standards for flavour and texture.

The selection of the highest quality raw materials with a strict system of quality control, make our preserves an exceptional product.
