The Valladolid company Pistacyl has begun exporting the pistachio it produces in Castile and Leon and which this year expects to reach a harvest of 40,000 kg, thus doubling that of last year.

Specifically, Pistacyl began to sell its product in the Irish market in February and its goal is to export 50% of its production to other countries, mainly in Europe and also to Japan, where it has already established the first contacts.

This family business has a 53-hectare plantation with 12,000 pistachio trees distributed throughout several farms located in the Valladolid towns of Pozal de Gallinas, Moraleja de las Panaderas and Fresno el Viejo, although its forecast is to expand the area of crop in the next year with 8 more hectares.

The objective is to continue consolidating itself as the largest pistachio producer in Castile and Leon and also as the first company to market pistachios in their natural state, without any type of roasting, salt or any other addition, which avoids deteriorating the monounsaturated fats typical of this fruit, thus conserving all its nutritional properties.

With this in mind, Pistacyl has been committed to R&D since its origins, developing to date 7 research projects with the CDTI, ITACYL, the University of Valladolid and the Valladolid Provincial Council, which have allowed it to achieve excellent results both in the cultivation method as well as in the improvement of the quality of the product.

This research effort has also made it worthy of the Innovative SME Seal granted by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness to recognize small and medium-sized companies that have a highly innovative character.

Likewise, the Pistacyl pistachio has obtained the Tierra de Sabor Saludable seal, which certifies those foods that favor a cardioprotective diet for consumers and that contain at least one nutrient whose health benefit has been scientifically recognized.

“We want to take the pistachio from the field to the table, avoiding any type of artificial process on this product, which is essential for a healthy and balanced diet,” says the manager of the Pistacyl Group, Alfredo Pérez.

Since 2021, Pistacyl has been marketing its packaged pistachios through different points of sale such as the El Corte Inglés and Agropal supermarkets and also through the Tierra de Sabor market place.
