TEB Barcelona cooperative launches La Despensa Social, a brand of healthy food products, 100% natural and made with social responsibility.
Initially, La Despensa Social puts the following varieties on the market:
- Rissottos: boletus with sesame seeds, asparagus with flax seeds, and zucchini and tomato with chia seeds.
- Quinoa: boletus with sesame seeds, asparagus with flax seeds, and zucchini and tomato with chia seeds.
The recipes, very easy to prepare, incorporate superfoods such as flax seeds, chia, sesame and quinoa, rich in essential amino acids, omega-3, fibre and minerals. And all without preservatives, dyes, or additives.
The recipes are mixed and packaged by workers with intellectual disabilities in the certified food facilities of the centres TEB/Sant Andreu and TEB/Verdum.
La Despensa Social products are now available in the Veritas supermarket chain, which has about fifty stores throughout Catalonia.
