Who we are

First steps

The origins of Almendras López date back to 1977 when our father, Miguel López, began with the marketing of in-shell almonds Decades later, in 1993, together with our mother, Purificación Maldonado, he established the company as we know it today.

From the beginning, it has been a family business in which we have put all our effort and dedication to grow and adapt to the new times, without neglecting the tradition of our land and our sector.

Next generation

In 2014, we, Miguel and Manuel, replaced our parents as managers of the company. At that stage, we decided to expand our business into new foreign markets, then we started with the importation of almonds from California and with the exportation to Europe.

Nowadays, we continue working hard and offering our most professional version. Thanks to all our shared efforts and to our qualified team we have achieved a leading position as one of the most important almond companies in Andalusia.

Current now, we are importing over half of our almond production and selling our products to more than 30 countries in Europe, Africa, Saudi Arabia, Russia, USA and Australia. Furthermore, our customers’ confidence has helped us to duplicate our figures during the last three years.

2018 38 € millions

“When you are a small company, it is easy to become bigger. If you see the world, you realize that there is always more space to grow, but the challenge is always continuing and consolidating”.
