In a Nutshell
Trafrut Cano, located on the southern shore of Spain, produces high quality quince paste using fruit from local farmers. They use only the highest quality all natural ingredients, traditional techniques and recipes to produce without a doubt the best quince paste on the market.
What's Their Story?
In 1912 the Cano family bought a farm with two quince trees. They made quince paste at home and sold it in the family "confiteria" or jam store in the center of Malaga. It sold out so fast that they decided to start a business. In 1994, Antonio and Joaquin Cano founded Trafrut Cano to produce and distribute natural fruit juices and pastes of the same high quality that has been the family trademark since 1912.
Why We Think They're Nifty
Although a small percentage of Trafrut Cano’s quince comes from their own crop, the majority is purchased from the same local farmers year after year. And since supporting the local economy is a criteria high on the nifty list, they were a shoo-in.
