This week we highlight the website for Maheso, which produces ready-made and pre-cooked frozen products. The company is a sector leader in Spain, with an extensive range of foods, from individual ingredients to ready-to-eat meals. According to its website, the company focuses on three qualities which define its products: quality, naturalness, and flavor.
Its factory is in Montcada I Reixac, in Barcelona, and employs around 400 people. Maheso was established in 1978 as a family business, and remains so today. It started out selling fresh products, mainly croquettes and cannelloni, to small stores, and later became the leading exporter of ready-made Spanish meals to more than 15 countries.
It’s worth noting that Maheso was the first company to implement the slow cooker and continuous cooling process in 1982 and to exceed two tons per hour of production on one line. It also developed proprietary technology to produce its own products, such as machinery for making looped churros.
Some of its top products including lasagna bolognese, gluten-free chicken fingers, mushroom risotto and four cheese risotto. New products include meat cannelloni and mini vegetable rolls.
Maheso foods can be bought at large supermarket and hypermarket chains, frozen product wholesalers and specialized shops.
Its website (www.maheso.com) includes information about its range of products and the philosophy it maintains in all of his recipes. Says the company: "Our passion for preserving the flavors and aromas of original recipes inspires us to seek out cooking methods which best respect those values”.
The About Us section contains extensive information about the company: its history, values, commitment to the environment, etc. In the section entitled News, Maheso’s communications team highlights the company’s latest news, as well as special offers and events in which it is involved.
