Our Work

Over the years we brought in many Mediterranean food products that became very successful. For example, the sustainable Day Boat Octopus or “Pulpo de Playa” is one of them. In fact, small day boats catch the octopus by using pots and traps. This technique does not damage the seafloor and there is a zero by-catch. It is a truly sustainable product.

Our range also includes a big selection of unique food products such as meat, vegetables, and seafood. We have the delicious Iberico pork, great vegetables, bright red Carabinero shrimp, craft cured anchovies fillets to mention some.

The company is always looking for new and unique Mediterranean food products.

Feel free to contact us for more info. Our pro team will answer all of your questions and will help you choose the right Mediterranean food products for you.

MSC Certification

Between the ocean and your plate, fish and seafood products may pass through many stages. Supply chains can be very complex. The MSC Chain of Custody Standard makes sure that products from MSC certified sustainable fisheries are traceable and separated from non-certified ones.

If products carry the blue MSC label then every company in the supply chain must have a valid chain of custody certificate. To be certified, independent certifiers conduct audits of MSC partners.

We are proud to have the MSC certification N°MSC-C-55943.
