AUTOR FOODS

Specialists in pre-cooked pulses
and organic pulses

MORE THAN A CENTURY OF EXPERIENCE

At Autor Foods, we’ve been producing pre-cooked pulses for more than a century. Our extensive experience makes us the witnesses and leaders of the evolution of the tinned foods industry in Spain and around the world.

We offer pulses of the highest quality thanks to the knowledge we’ve gained over generations and our use of technology in our production system. We maintain a firm commitment to the environment, promoting organic farming and abiding by principles of sustainable growth.

OUR PULSES

We use all varieties of beans, chickpeas and lentils as our primary raw materials to produce a large variety of pre-cooked pulses and organic pulses: the basic line (pulses only), combinations with vegetables and special mixes. Broad beans and lima beans complete our range of pulses.

SPECIAL INGREDIENTS

Our R&D department is constantly working to find new products and innovate in the sector. This allows us to have a line of specialties we make by adding original ingredients to our pulses to boost their flavour and create balanced ready-to-eat dishes.

  • BLACK TRUFFLE

    We shave the best black truffles and add them to our pre-cooked and organic chickpeas to boost their flavour to the max and provide a pleasant aroma.

  • SHIITAKE

    We chop up shiitake mushrooms and add them to our pre-cooked and organic white beans to create a savoury combination that’s unique in the tinned foods market.

  • KOMBU ALGAE

    We add Japanese kombu algae to our chickpeas and white beans as well as diced vegetables: tomatoes, carrots and leek.

  • CURCUMIN

    Curcumin is a spice originally from southwest India we use to season some of our most special products to give them a slightly spicy touch.

  • VEGETABLES

    We produce a complete line of pulses with vegetables: beans, chickpeas and lentils. The combination of these foods allows us to offer a nutritionally very complete dish.

  • GRAINS

    We create grain blends using spelt, golden flax and brown flaxseed which we add to our lentils along with diced tomatoes, carrots, red peppers, green peppers and onions.

TINNED VEGETABLES

We select and package the best garden vegetables to prepare tinned foods with all the same organoleptic properties. We recommend trying our lupins, peas and mixed vegetables. They’re available in glass jars and tins in different weights and sizes.
