At Hort del Silenci we maintain our roots by conserving and promoting the production of our own crops that are the basis of our products. In particular, we grow cereals and legumes. That’s why we continue to be what we say: farmers and processors.

We live in a globalized world where people are increasingly demanding and demand to know the traceability of the foods that fill their pantry. It’s okay to be like that, because Food is health. In this sense, we offer no doubt. Our products are made from our own, local crops. We are located in central Catalonia, mainly in the region of La Segarra and La Noguera and enjoy a continental Mediterranean microclimate, very cold in winter and hot in summer.

We are aware that what we eat has an impact on our health. Therefore, we recover traditional seeds of old cereals, which retain intact all their properties and have not been genetically modified. We also make different flours produced from cereals and legumes ground in a stone mill to maximize their nutritional and organoleptic qualities. On any of our products, you will find the certified organic food stamp. We are committed to a healthy, balanced and sustainable diet.

Our goal is to create a relationship of trust with the consumer. For this reason, we are committed to creating a new line of packaging that, in addition to being sustainable, provides as much information as possible about the product and about us. In the new cardboard boxes, which contain different varieties of pasta, grain legumes, pastry packaged flours and gluten-free legume flours, you will find extensive information. You can follow the traceability of our products without any problems!

At Hort del Silenci we are making a big commitment to adapt all our packaging to much more environmentally friendly criteria. We want to respond to the demanding and growing demands of today’s consumers who want to buy healthy and local products, which are also sustainable with the environment.

We exchange plastic bags for recycled food cardboard boxes; more comfortable to handle, safer to keep food in optimal condition and, above all, less polluting. In the case of flours, we change them into recycled and recyclable RPET plastic jars with lids of the same type of plastic, to avoid cross-contamination in the kitchen or workshop. These jars will also go in a recycled cardboard box.

Our goal is to provide consumers with as much information as possible about us and the product purchased, and in this sense, recycled cardboard boxes allow us to be more transparent because we can better explain everything we want to convey. At the same time, we facilitate a comfortable handling of the same products.

What do the containers explain? The nutritional and organoleptic properties of the products, how to use the product in each of its different uses, ideas and tips for reusing the packaging, recipes to help inspire cooks and, finally, information about us and Hort del Silenci .

We grow and produce products that are good for you, for everyone and for the environment.

As part of the celebration of the Organic Food Iberia fair, held in Madrid on 8 and 9 September, the Organic Iberia Awards were presented, in eleven categories. THE VEGETABLE EGG, one of our most innovative products, was the winner in the category of Best Innovative Product in Vegan Organic Product. A great recognition to all the trajectory of our brand, that has always bet to create and elaborate healthy products, ecological, sustainable and of proximity, encouraging the own crops.

What is the VEGETABLE EGG? Chickpea flour conditioned to be an egg substitute. Two tablespoons of this product is the equivalent of an average egg. We have to add water to get the texture of beaten egg…and it will be ready to make cakes, pancakes, potato omelette or vegetables… 🍰😋 It is officially certified as an organic, vegan and gluten-free product.

It should be noted that Organic Food Iberia has presented the product in a new container, which consists of a jar of recycled RPET plastic, also with a plastic lid (to prevent cross-contamination in the kitchen or workshop), inside of a recycled cardboard box that explains: the nutritional and organoleptic properties of flour, how to use the product in each of its different uses, ideas and tips for reusing the packaging and, finally, information about us and our Brand. We want to provide the consumer with as much information as possible about the product purchased, as well as ensuring a comfortable handling of it.

At Hort del Silenci we are making a big commitment to adapt all our packaging to much more environmentally friendly criteria.
