Call Valls – Organic Fruit Products from Catalunya and Beyond

Almost all the shops I have mentioned so far stock the ‘Cal Valls‘ range of fruit juices. I’ve tried a few – the Mandarina in particular is superb – so I thought I’d try and find out more about them:


Cal Valls is a family business – they have been farming organically since the 1980s, making them pioneers not only in Catalunya but in all Spain, and they are certified organic by the ‘Consell Català de la Producció Agrària Ecològica’.

They have their own farm in northern Catalunya although they also buy in raw materials – mainly fruit – from other organic suppliers, particularly in the south of Spain where the growing conditions for certain fruits are more suitable. The production and packaging is all done at their facilities in Vilanova de Bellpuig.

The website http://www.calvalls.com is really informative – it appears in Catalan, Spanish and English – so I recommend you have a look, and I recommend even more strongly that you try their products as they are yummy!

I recently noticed that Buenas Migas are selling small bottles of Cal Valls juices; the bottles I have seen in shops are 1-litre size and priced between 2.50 and 3.50 euros, so not cheap…more along the lines of buying a carton of Tropicana rather than a tetrabrik of Dia/Eroski el cheapo OJ.

I rather like the fact that the juices are sold in glass bottles instead of cartons – however this does make your shopping rather heavy, so consider taking advantage of the delivery service at Be Organic! Then don’t forget to recycle them.

About helenbcn

I sometimes write about things that interest or inspire me, and that I think might interest and inspire other people. I prefer blogs as a medium (rather than Medium, Twitter, Instagram etc) partly because of the longer format but mostly because of the ability to hyperlink to other interesting and useful sources, which to me seems more true to the 'spirit of the internet' than proprietary sites that try their hardest to keep you within their own domain. Comments welcome.
