WHAT DO WE DO?

The best from the sea

We buy daily from dozens of fishing areas and fish markets all over the world to provide our customers with fresh, top quality products at the best price. Also in frozen, we buy raw material directly from the source, from the closest to the most remote areas of the planet, to offer a wide range of products and origins.

Our own production and factory

Once the raw material has been received, we process and prepare it in our fresh produce processing rooms in Mercabarna and Mercamadrid, or in frozen products, we pack them in a multitude of formats in our frozen products factory, depending on the needs of our customers: bulk, sanitized, packaged and vacuum for the catering industry or skinpack, bag, isopack, vacuum or thermosealed for retail and supermarkets

Storage capacity

We have 53,000m³ of cold storage, which gives us the capacity to store around 3,000 references in a space for 10,000 pallets. For optimum stock management, we also have the latest technology and computerised tools (for example: radio frequency or voice picking).

Daily distribution and customer service

In addition, our more than 80 street or telephone salesmen and more than 90 professionals with properly prepared distribution vehicles, deliver daily to our more than 19,000 customers throughout the group, a millimetric work, but with a vocation for service and trust that sets us apart. Through external distributors, we also export in large volumes all over the world (Europe, Asia, Latin America, etc.).

OUR HISTORY

The passion and perseverance of the family’s ancestors, as well as the different generations of workers and professionals who have formed part of Ferrer, have allowed the business to evolve from the fish stall in Vic square (1920s), to a pioneering frozen food warehouse (1950s-60s), the progressive opening of several branches (1970s-90s) and up to the company we are today, with great import and export power all over the world.
