The company founder, Ramon Perez-Pujol (1916-1984), began working as a trading agent in 1940, selling Spanish produced canned food and dried fruit all over Catalonia. He set up his offices in Via Laietana, at that time the centre of the food business in Barcelona, as it was near the port, the cereals stock exchange (where we owned contracting table nº 119) and the Borne (fresh fruit distribution market). The company then incorporated a second line of business in raw materials for making animal feed which was developed alongside the human food section for over 30 years. With the partial liberalization of imports in the 1970, we stated selling food from abroad, particularly dried fruits, pulses, canned seafood and canned fruits. George Perez-Pujol, his son, joined the family company in 1968 and he is the present Managing Director. Perez-Pujol International Canned Foods, S.L. was set up in 1995 and the company continues to trade under that name nowadays. In the same year the offices were moved to a building in Plaza Cerda, a fast developing business area, mid way between the port, the city centre and Barcelona airport. We negotiate over 1.200 truckloads and containers of goods a year, which allows us to say that we are the largest Imported Canned Food Agents in Spain. We attend most of the Spanish and International trade fairs and have had our own stand at Alimentaria since 1978. During this time we have selected a wide range of the biggest and best manufacturers of canned fish, seafood, fruits and vegetables from all over the world.
