PREPARATION OF PASTRY AND PUFF PASTRY IN PALENCIA.

“TRADITION AND SWEETNESS”
Pastas y Hojaldres Uko, how the company is known today, was founded in 1958. It´s dedicated to the production and sale of completely handmade products such as the famous Socorritos Lazos al Chocolate, Pisuerguinas, Pastas finas de té, Tortos de Almendra, Sequillos, … and other few delicacies of great success in the national market.

It would start its activity as café, in the center of the town of Cervera, where Raquel started to elaborate her so special and exquisite puff pastry. She would also have the entrepreneurial help of her brothers Luis, Pepe and Angel (Uko).

Uko was the one, together with Raquel, decided to continue with the business, moving the small workshop of the café Florida to an old family sawmill where to face the growing needs of the moment.

Things were going well so in 1988 the new factory is finished, located on the outskirts of town, which would allow to increase its productive capacity, as well as the number of workers.

It was also a good opportunity to expand the range of products and enter new markets.

Currently, those who perform the functions of management and administration of the company are nephews and grandchildren of the founders, keeping the same recipes and procedures used by their predecessors and that so many palates have come to conquer.

PREPARATION OF PASTRY AND PUFF PASTRY IN PALENCIA.

Our factory is located in Cervera de Pisuerga, Palencia. In addition to the factory, we also have a small store where we sell our products directly to the public.

With approximately 2500 square meters of facilities, well distributed between factory, warehouse and offices, we try to modernize production processes, as well as all the infrastructure that our company consists of. With this we will be more energy efficient, improve working conditions, reduce costs and develop new products in order to satisfy our consumer.

FOOD SAFETY AND CONTROL

The production process begins with the purchase of quality raw materials. Flour, sugar, butter, eggs, etc. they come from major brands in the food sector, which guarantees us security levels that go beyond those of the law itself.
Once manufactured, our products undergo rigorous analysis for their correct traceability. It is about detecting critical points in any of the production phases and in this way avoid possible risks to the health of consumers.

Risks of a biological nature and/ or risks of a physical nature are full controlled thanks to this combination of techniques.

COMMITMENT AND VALUES

Since ideas keep changing, like markets and their products, in Pastas Uko we seek to combine research, innovation and development with one of the principles that gave rise to this family business: QUALITY.

So our objective is focused on being closer to the client knowing what he need and when he need it and, of course, on taking care of our most valuable asset: the worker.

We are aware of the depopulation and lack of resources that rural areas suffer. Therefore, we try to collaborate with our region of the Montaña Palentina, offering employment, with solidarity participations, respecting the environment, etc.
