Tradition, taste and quality

The origins

The history of Paiarrop begins in the countryside, in L’Alcúdia (Valencia). Amalio Vallés, the son and grandson of farm workers, was taught from an early age to love the richness of the land and the excellence of its fruit by his father, better known in the town as “Paiarrop” due to his love of this excellent, traditional, local product known as Arrop which, along with a piece of bread (Pà), helped Amalio's father alleviate the hard work in the fields.


     


Sharing the good things

Amalio used to accompany his father from the orchard to the different markets to sell the products harvested by the family. It was there that he discovered what is still Paiarrop's primary motivation: to provide consumers with top-quality, natural products based on his ancestors´ know-how.

Passion and dedication

A lot of water has flowed under the bridge since Amalio began selling his own Arrop, Pan de higo made from Pajarero figs, traditional Membrillo and exquisite homemade jams, which he produced in his small workshop in the town. His inheritance is bolstered by all the miles travelled through all streets, towns and craft fairs where he, along with his wife and children, honoured the memory of his predecessors. That memory is still alive today, in each and every process and product manufactured at Paiarrop.

Our Values

 

Artisan tradition

Much of Paiarrop's success lies in the balance between the traditions inherited and the culture of innovation implemented throughout the company. Tasting Paiarrop products is like going back to the origins, to the starting point of Mediterranean gastronomic culture.

We at Paiarrop only use raw materials of the highest quality to manufacture our products, carefully screening suppliers and their origin. 95% of our raw materials are of local or national origin.
