Our packaging plant is situated 2 km from the Pedrosillo el Ralo, the village whose name was given to the famous Perdosillo chick-pea, the variety cultivated in this area. The Pedrosillo chick-pea is today patronized by the Regulating Council GARBANZO DE PEDROSILLO, which guarantees its quality and unique origin. We market this product under our brand “Las Charras”.
