Fish wholesalers

Torrents Fish Wholesalers was founded in 1908 by Emilia Carbonell Pages with a small fish shop at the Mercat de Sant Pere at Terrassa. The fish used to be preserved in salt since there weren’t any available resources keep it cool with ice.

In 1920 Padrós Dolors Carbonell joined the market stall, and thirty years later Martí Torrents eventually did too. Still, the growth came from the hand of the business implementation at various malls and the eighties retail start. At that moment, and once the transition had been made from salt to ice, Torrents Fish Wholesalers started to specialize in the artisan preparation of cuttlefish, which is currently imported from Morocco.

Torrents Wholesalers of Fish has eleven establishments distributed by Terrassa, Matadepera, Sant Cugat del Vallès and Barcelona. All of them inaugurated in recent years. And as a novelty, the wholesale sale has been incorporated for professionals and individuals in the same central store at Bosch and Gimpera, 57 Street, Terrassa.

The professionalism -the result of over a centuries experience on the fish field- and quality of our products, both fresh and frozen, support our service. On the other hand, the constant relationship we maintain with our suppliers, always to get the highest quality, consistency and regularity of supply is the basis for satisfying our customers.

Torrents always receives selected products from Spain’s main ports, Vigo, La Coruña, San Sebastian, Roses, Palamos, Tarragona and many other imports.

The last 10 years the company has experienced growth with the opening of new outlets and specialization cuttlefish high quality 100% imported from Morocco.
