Our company

A family business
dedicated to the
production of courgettes

Hortofrutícola Las Norias was founded in 1987 as a family business in the town of Las Norias de Daza (Almería), exclusively dedicated to the production and marketing of courgettes, thus achieving a specialization in this field.

This exclusive dedication and the location, in an optimum environment for its production, have made that the production has gone from 6,000 tons per year to around 41,000 at present.

The company has an average workforce of 200 employees and has implemented, both in the central handling and in the field, the most demanding quality systems, such as Global GAP and BRC, thus offering a total guarantee on the quality of its products and services.
