SALOMÓN, THE ORIGIN
In 1953 two brothers, Pedro and Francisco Bernabé, began their journey across the world of paprika and spices.
At that time they were spice brokers at national level, supplying all kind of products, starting with raw materials, through packaging and machinery for food industry.
In 1982, after a great effort, they created Manufacturas Salomón S.L., in principle, working only with typical Spanish products such as paprika, anise, saffron, etc. and later one importing all kind of spices. The second generation of the Bernabé family currently runs the company, considered an expert and leading firm in paprika and spices production.
WHAT WE DO
At present, we work in tight cooperation with local farmers to cultivate the highest quality Spanish paprika on 40 hectares of land. Salomón delivers its products to spice packers, meat industry, can industry and distributors of spices.
