Founded in 1994, Tolosako Babarrun Elkartea is the Tolosa Bean Producers’ Association. It currently has 58 partners producing Tolosa beans from the region of Tolosaldea, Gipuzkoa and its products have been awarded the Eusko Label quality certificate.
Tolosako Babarrun Elkartea’s star product are the Tolosa beans, which are sold dried or pre-cooked. An average of 31,000 kilos of beans are produced a year from 17 hectares of crops.
How the products are made
The Producers’ Association is responsible for sowing, cultivating and harvesting the beans. The selection and drying of the beans is then done by each individual partner at their own production venue.
Research and improvements are made continually to ensure that every aspect of the production of Tolosa beans is the best it can be. This means that the Association can confidently offer consumers the highest quality product and guarantee its origin. The Association represents producers and the workers who strive to offer the best of Gipuzkoa’s agricultural produce.
