The adventure began in the Sierra de Segura, when we, the Martínez Sedeño family, who believe strongly in the benefits of healthy eating habits, decided to grow our own organic food to be sold directly to the consumer. For us, it was important that the food we produced had a direct link to the well-being and good health of our consumers. In the beginning, we started to make simple homemade recipes using our cultivated organic products, and quickly obtained excellent results. This was enough to motivate us to begin a new chapter in our lives, in which we decided to create our own industry.
The first chapter of the company history began in 1997 when SCA Cortijo del Gavilán opened its doors in a small facility located in Puente de Génave (Jaén). Here we started to create a range of traditional artisan products, such as Andalusian gazpacho, olive patés and a variety of tomato sauces.
