    With the process of preparing Carretilla-exclusive dishes, we create dishes with a natural and intense flavour, maintaining, as far as possible, its texture, colour, aroma and nutritional properties throughout its life, with no preservatives. All of this is thanks to the latest technology, technologically-advanced packaging and ingredients of the highest quality.

IAN participates in the project HIPSTER. It is a multinational project in which companies, Universities and technology Centers from different EU countries are involved. This project has been funded by the Programme for Research and Innovation of the European Union, Horizon 2020. The objective is to develop the technology for thermally assisted high pressure, so new products can be developed, with higher quality and better organoleptic nutritional values. This is a natural and friendly to the environment method of preservation because it reduces energy and water consumption compared to other traditional methods of conservation.

Certificates

We are recognized for the quality of our products, backed by the most prestigious international food safety standards such as:
