Origen y evolución, Manolet Origin and development

The Alonso Family is linked to the almond business since 1946, when the start-up of the first cracker took place in Valverde (Elche). From that moment onwards until today, they have dedicated all their efforts to the trading and shelling of almonds.

 

It has been a business career of continuous growth and development. Since the beginning we have focused on offering to our customers a great value product always guaranteeing the quality of the almonds since its origin. This is something that could not have been achieved without having taken special care with the relationships with our growers.

 

During all these years, we have tried to be ahead of our time, as well as of the market requirements.

 

We highlight year 2017 as a key date for Manolet, as we carried out the largest investment in our history, starting a two-phase project. The first phase involves the construction of a modern almond blanching and processing plant and the second phase involves the constructions of a new cracker. Both facilities are located in Elche Industrial Park.

 

Nowadays  both phases have been finished.  They both are modern facilities equipped with the latest technology for all the processes.
