ABOUT US

Since 1986 Vegetalia elaborates and distributes a wide range of organic products, being pioneers in the production of vegetal protein.

 

From the beginning, we have trusted the heritage of a natural lifestyle and a diet that is in balance between artisan production and the use of advanced technology.

 

This labor goes hand in hand with our commitment with the people and the planet. The path to achieve this is through quality and sustainability.

 

In Mas Monserrat we have found the perfect spot. Located in a region of exceptional beauty, we find ourselves in the natural district of Moianes, Castellcir, an hour away drive from busy Barcelona.

We believe that we are what we eat, therefore building a fresh and high quality diet is essential for a good health. This is our aim, to provide a healthy diet that can keep up to a healthy living standard.

 

Our philosophy is committed with tranquility and sustainability as a way of living. In Vegetalia we make full use of natural resources and renewable energies.

 

We have our doors open to curious visitors who want to share the adventure, take a look at our surroundings, and meet our team. We are thrilled to experience with you the results of our effort, engagement and beliefs.

A DAY AT VEGETALIA

We start work early because we like to take advantage of the daylight hours and, at this time of day the aromatic plants are still covered in dew and we are greeted by a living silence.

 

Occasional school visits also liven up our routine, characterized by a very friendly atmosphere.

At noon, if the weather allows it, we like to eat in the shade of the walnut trees, enjoying lavander and multicolored butterfly views.

 

Our afternoons are calm and quiet, and in our way home we can be lucky enough to see a beautiful Mediterranean sunset.
