Our roots, the Mediterranean

Costa Brava Mediterranean Foods is the reflection of our history told through the senses. A brand which gathers the inherited essence of a land characterised by the quality of its food. A healthy balance between quality products: fruit, vegetables, olive oil... and of course meat, that irreplaceable source of energy, iron and vitamins which we bring to you.

The Mediterranean is our identity
“MEDI TERRANEUM”

“Medi terraneum”, that fertile soil toasted by the sun and bathed by the sea of the same name is a universal reference point for many historical and cultural reasons and for one very special reason: its gastronomy.

Cuisine is its way of understanding the world, slow food versus fast food, an ideal combination of quality meats, tasty spices, fruit and vegetables which allow us to enjoy the pleasure of good taste whilst we look after ourselves with the healthiest diet. A balanced food pattern which the experts consider capable of preventing vascular diseases, oxidation, premature ageing and depression better than any other.

The Mediterranean is the land of tapas, this concept of ours which mixes eating well with pleasant chats with friends. That which cultivates herbs and spices in order to attain the most delicate, spiciest or most intense flavours to marinate our meats and charcuterie.





The Mediterranean is the land of fire which feeds the best barbecues. That which reveres innovation and respect for tradition at the same time. That which allows us to savour both moments of solitude and the good times spent in the best company.

We’re from here so we’ve inherited all of these traditions. The Mediterranean captures the best of its surroundings, its connections and the variety that characterises all our villages and towns. And at Costa Brava Mediterranean Foods, we capture the best of the Mediterranean, which has given us cultural and gastronomic richness and much more... a common background in order to understand life.
