About Us

1

Higos el Pajarero is a family run business dedicated to high quality dried fig production for almost half a century. Supported by the experience of several generations, the company´s production has grown steadily over the years from the initial 20.000 kg per year to the current 1.000.000 kg per year.

 

Thanks to a historical tradition in the activity, Spain is nowadays one of the first world producers and exporters of dried figs.

 

Within the national territory, the autonomous community of Extremadura has always boasted favourable conditions for the agriculture of this fruit.

 

Higos el Pajarero bases its production precisely in this area, specifically in the Badajoz province which guarantees optimal climatic and geographical settings for the fig trees which grow lushly all over the area.

 

Higos el Pajarero owns vast fig plantations that support part of its yearly production. At the same time, the company endorses regional and local development by acquiring figs from other important farmers who also maintain the high level of quality standards required to satisfy our demanding national and international clients.

 

The first stages of the production process are carried out in our Badajoz establishment. Subsequently, the figs are processed and packaged in our headquarters located in Barcelona to guarantee an efficient administration of distribution, logistics, and supply chain management, as well as excellent customer service and product quality.

 

All our products are regularly audited to guarantee continuity and optimal quality levels.

 

Higos el Pajarero is GlobalGAP certified. This warranty indicates that the food products fulfill the established quality and safety levels, that have been processed following sustainability criteria, in respect of the safety, hygiene and wellbeing of the workers and the environment, as well as towards animals.

 

By combining valuable know-how in the agricultural, technological and logistical areas, Higos el Pajarero has been able to expand into the big distribution market.

 

Besides being the main supplier of several dried fruit wholesalers we also sell our products through major channels like Carrefur and Consum, which ensure a significant presence in the national and international food and catering sector.
