knowledge into English so people worldwide can have a greater knowledge and better understanding of this country and its people.
With the website I also hope that small producers in the Autonomous Region of Madrid who cannot cope on their own with customers who do not speak Spanish can bring their products to a wider audience, outside Spain. These are products that are grown and manufactured naturally (often organic) by manufacturers (family firms) that are based on the principles of food sovereignty and are known to me personally. I visit them regularly and keep up-to-date on their production and with the quality certificates issued to them by the local authorities.
So, if you would like to delight your palate and that of your family and friends, whether you are in Madrid or somewhere else in the world, here you will find high-quality products. With your purchases you will also be supporting small family farms that would otherwise find it difficult to stay afloat due to the threat of international supermarkets.
