In its origins, the company’s founder, Mr Pedro Benítez Barroso started buying to nearby farmers their Andalusian chickpea harvests. With the traditional tools of that time, pulses were selected, mainly by hand, and sold in bulk. They were distributed among the shopkeepers and traditional shops in the area.
In the 80s, Legumbres Pedro had become the benchmark company within the Pulses sector in Andalusia.
In the 90s, with the expansion of supermarkets and large stores in Spain, consumer demand changes. The company broadens its range of pulses presenting them in different packaging, more suitable to the new shopping basket driven by the free service.
