Inpanasa (Industrial pastelera San Narciso, SA) was born in Girona in 1976 with a small oven, belonging to the Montes Lara family, and a very clear idea: to make products of the highest quality using natural ingredients and selected suppliers. At the end of the seventies, the distribution covered virtually the entire country.
The “bizcocho” (sponge cake) is created, unique in the market and the company’s flagship product. Due to great demand from consumers, the company was forced to expand its production lines.
Award for commercial and service prestige.
Inpanasa continuously innovates its product portfolio based on the tastes of consumers and traditional recipes, being a pioneer in the creation of products such as the pine nut madeleines.
