Description

The Aubergine is known and used in many countries around the world, and has many names including: 'Brinjal', 'Eggplant' and 'Guinea Squash'. The Chinese first cultivated the plant in the fifth century BC, but it has also been grown in India for centuries. Moorish invaders introduced them to Spain, and this was likely the first introduction to Europe. Nowadays they are an essential in the British kitchen, as well as many Northern European countries. Aubergines need long, hot summers to grow at their best, so are ideally suited to Spanish growing conditions, and we are delighted to find such a great supplier.

Produced in:

Algarrobo, Spain

Bioalgarrobo says

Aubergines can be incorporated into all sorts of recipes, but perhaps the most famous in modern cooking is the 'ratatouille' which came out of Provence in France. Add these aubergines to courgettes, onions, peppers, garlic and tomatoes to create the wonderful healthy french stew. Just make sure you have some good olive oil, and time to let it simmer.

Meet Bioalgarrobo

Algarrobo, Spain

Bioalgarrobo is located in Algarrobo, a small village East of Malaga between the Bentomiz hills and the Mediterranean sea. The village is surrounded by a river, and along with the Southern Spanish climate, it nourishes the soil. Founded in 2003 by 8 local farmers, environmental and social sustainability are fundamental principles of their project, and remain the key focus to this day for the cooperative. They now grow high quality Organic Fruit and Vegetables. Adri from Bioalgarrobo says, " With a lot of effort, we managed to build a self-sufficient warehouse through photovoltaic panels. We also use recyclable and biodegradable packaging to reduce the environmental impact and we avoid using chemicals for the disinfection of the cold rooms and storage areas by using ozone instead. Thanks to these and some other clever improvements, like acclimating our warehouse with insulating materials, we are able to work effectively and respectfully with the natural environment. In recognition of our work, the Minister for the Environment and Sustainable Development in the Government in Andalucía, awarded us with “ Bandera al Mérito Medioambiental de Andalucía” prize. Our healthy and tasty vegetables are the result of an exceptional climate, effort and passion. We are excited to share the best we do with you!"
