PASTAS AND PUFF PASTRIES UKO
ELABORATION OF PASTRIES AND PUFF PASTRY IN PALENCIA
“TRADITION AND SWEETNESS”.
Pastas y Hojaldres Uko, as the company is known today, was founded in 1958.
It is 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 many other delicacies of great success in the national market.
It would begin its activity as a cafeteria, in the centre of the town of Cervera, where Raquel began to make her special and exquisite puff pastry. She also had the entrepreneurial help of her brothers Luis, Pepe and Angel (Uko).
Uko was the one who, together with Raquel, decided to continue with the business, moving the small bakery from the Florida cafeteria to an old family sawmill where they could meet the growing production needs of the moment.
Things were going well, so in 1988 the new factory, located on the outskirts of the village, was completed, which allowed the production capacity to be increased, as well as the number of workers.
It was also a good opportunity to expand the range of products and enter new markets.
Today, it is the nephews and grandchildren of the founders who carry out the management and administration of the company, maintaining the same recipes and procedures used by their predecessors and which have conquered so many palates.
