At Frupinsa we supply only graded almonds of fully Spanish origin.
A basic ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine and ideal for making all kinds of foods and culinary creations, especially nougat, marzipan, cakes and pastries in general.
Our broad experience and know-how, together with our facilities, which incorporate the latest technology in the sector, enable us to offer high-quality almonds that are graded and free of impurities.
We are also registered with the CCPAE (Catalan Organic Agricultural Production Council), which means we are authorised to supply organic almonds.
We have recently created our own brand of natural almonds packaged for the final consumer.
