There is no greater secret to obtain a good preserve than working with excellent raw material in the fields right from the start. La Catedral de Navarra cultivates its products near its facilities, it knows the farmers it works with and carries out a strict control of each one of the steps involved in growing their vegetables.
The products of La Catedral de Navarra are always seasonal, because it is the natural cycle of the plants that gives the best results with respect to flavour, aroma and texture. All the vegetables that bear the LC label have been hand-picked and are at optimum ripeness.
Rigour in the quality and care during handling. The La Catedral vegetables are packed manually following the strictest health and tasting controls. All the work is organised so that the time it takes from harvesting to packing is as short as possible. Furthermore, the process that each product has to pass is designed to avoid the loss of its fresh aromas. Thus, the asparagus are blanched with skin so that this acts as a protective barrier for all its properties, or the peppers are handled without touching water for them to preserve the intensity of the "piquillo" pepper that has just come off the stove.
