Bernardo´s Marmelade (Jam) & Mojo Sauces Tahiche Lanzarote
The history of our #Company goes back to the end of the last century, when Don Bernardo owned several restaurants in the eighties and nineties. Since then he has been a curious and proactive person in the search for new flavors. In 1993, being the owner and chef of a restaurant in Lanzarote, he began to develop a jam from a fruit that he saw was in abundance on the island and which very few people used #Tuno indio (opuntia dillenii)
At first it was only produced in very small quantities, to be sold in one of the restaurants, as a souvenir of the gastronomy of the Canary Islands. Given the very quality of the restaurant, it was an essential requirement that these jams should keep that good work in their jars, in order to create a logical symbiosis between the local food and that souvenir that the customer could take home, where the hand-written taste was on the label.
Over the next few months some shops and small supermarkets would be interested in the products. Two years after the start, in 1995, the production and marketing company would be founded. During the following years, the company would maintain a sustainable growth, expanding the range, with its first employees and creating a solid brand being a reference of quality among customers and consumers.
The beginnings are never easy, but in this case, there is the handicap of doing business from an island, where industry is scarce and where, for imports, costs are high and possibilities are low. Getting jars, sugar, labels, machinery...
With our brand "Bernardos Salsas" we sell our Canary mojos, soft red and hot, and green. These are made with authentic #Palmpepper , which makes them one of the best mojos on the market. It competes with the recipe of the grandmother.
