Paprika from La Vera

El Pimentón de la Vera VegaCáceres está ahumado de forma característica como marca la tradición con madera de encina y roble. Ese sistema tradicional consigue aportar el sabor, color y aroma de La Vera en todos los platos y elaboraciones en los que se utiliza.

In addition, you can enjoy different variants such as sweet, bittersweet and spicy. Having La Vera Vega Cáceres Paprika in your pantry means having a unique product focused on achieving the objective of impregnating your dishes with a characteristic flavour, enriching them and giving them a special value (and flavour).

La marca VegaCáceres

Harvesting and smoking in the fields of northern Cáceres for more than 70 years.

The history of José Luis Mateos, S.L. began in 1946, when the Mateos family started out specialising in the production of Pimentón de La Vera paprika.

Since its birth, with Mr. Isidro Mateos Pérez at the head, this company has stood out for its family roots, without neglecting its team of professionals. Proof of this is the later incorporation of Jose Luis Mateos, Isidro's son, giving the company its name.

Currently, the 3rd generation of the Mateos family is present in the company, always seeking to maintain the legacy that has brought so much joy to the Pimentón de la Vera sector.

The best quality

All our products have with Protected Designation of Origin

El Pimentón de la Vera VegaCáceres es sometido a los más rigurosos procesos de calidad y certificación.  Los certificados que aporta nuestra marca hablan por sí solos del resultado que garantizamos a nuestros consumidores.

Each of our certifications is further proof of the care, love and attention with which our Pimentón de La Vera paprika is produced.

In addition, we maintain continuous training of our farmers in cultivation methods, fertilisation, drying, harvesting and processing. 

This working methodology, meticulous and detailed, allows us to obtain a product catalogued as being of the highest quality and thus be able to satisfy the strictest needs demanded by our customers.

To tell the truth, La Vera paprika does not have an expiry date as such, it has a best-before date, which means that the paprika does not expire; what happens is that when this date expires it loses colour, flavour and aroma. However, the best-before date normally lasts for more than a year.

  • It maintains cholesterol and triglyceride levels and stimulates circulation.
