How Higos El Pajarero produces the best dried figs



For more than 50 years, the family company Higos El Pajarero has been producing gourmet dried figs of excellent quality. The experience of both generations has allowed the company to constantly increase its production over the decades. 


Fuensanta Carrillo Pulido, manager of the company, tells us that she still remembers when they started out producing about 20,000 kg per year. As of October 2022 the quantities amount to 2,380,000 kg per year.


The company takes pride in its figs, and each one is carefully inspected for any imperfections before being packed and shipped to stores around the world. The end result is a product that is not only delicious, but also quality.


To this day, as demand continues to grow each year, the company is always looking for new ways to expand its reach and bring its incredible figs to even more people.

What can you see in the video?

If you haven't seen the video yet, you will be able to see the plantations and the whole production process throughout all the stages, both in Badajoz and Barcelona.


The first step is to find the right figs. We source figs from Extremadura, one of the best areas in Spain known for its high quality figs. Once the figs are harvested, they are taken to the Higos El Pajarero factory, where they are sorted, cleaned and stored.

This first part is carried out in the town of Cristina (Badajoz). 


Once this process is completed, they are transported to Barcelona and taken to the Sant Vicenç dels Horts plant for packaging, packing and shipping. Always with the highest standards of quality and food safety, even during packaging for shipment!


So if you are looking for a natural, delicious and healthy product, El Pajarero's gourmet dried figs are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth, while providing important nutrients such as fiber, potassium, magnesium and calcium. In addition to consuming it on its own, you can also use it in delicious sweet or savory recipes. You will find them in this blog.
