Alimentos de Zamora
Español ESP English ENG Português POR



From the green fields of wheat that has just come into ear to the ivory white of the flour, there is a long road that needs to be covered by the flour companies of Zamora. The tradition is so firmly rooted in this cereal-producing province that almost every river and stream has been used at some time in the past to drive the wheel of a watermill. The Spanish saying goes ‘donde no hay harina, todo es mohína’ (literally translated as ‘in a house with no flour, there can only be displeasure’; in other words, ‘poverty breeds discontent’); however, here, wheat was turned into flour using hydraulic power and the flour then made sure of everything else, especially our daily bread, as it continues to do today.
