The history of our company dates back to 1920, in which Mr. Tomás Sirvent Planelles, Xixona nougat manufacturer, was established in Barcelona in the Gothic Quarter of the city, in the street Freixures, next market Santa Caterina.
Later, in 1943, Mr. Thomas Sirvent Pla, son of the former, moved to the current address of our company on Parliament Street in the central Eixample Barceloni diversifying through the years our offer to get a reputation in horchata, ice cream, iced drinks and candies.
Today our company has a team of 12 people, to which must be added those who work in our factory in Xixona, responsible for developing handcrafted nougats we market under the name of Horchateria – Turroneria Sirvent de Barcelona. In this sense we offer our customers a wide range of nougat artisans.
The quality and craftsmanship have always been the hallmark of our company, so much so that nougat export to five continents, because our customers send to their relatives our products. We also prepare various batches and corporate gifts. Taste and respect for the traditional methodology has become the best advertisement of our company, which for more than eighty years has found a place in the heart of Barcelona.
At present the establishment is run by Ivonne Sirvent, daughter of Tomás Sirvent Plá together with her husband José Antonio Mullor and their son, Didac Mullor Sirvent, grandson of Tomás Sirvent Plá, who represents the fourth generation of this family of authentic Teachers of horchateros and turroneros of Jijona.
