Our goal nowadays is to promote the knowledge around world of the benefits of living like the Family Pont Creus did more than 100 years ago, combining the best Mediterranean foods with the pleasure of good company.

We are on a path. Where we are now is not the end but only the beginning. There is so much yet to be done. But come what may, it will be achieved with our family’s values at heart to guide us, with honesty, optimism and determination. Together we can build something bigger and better. Something that future generations can be proud. of. A legacy that will carry on, with the same enthusiasm and passion that drove Antoni Pont and Dolores Creus to start the company all those years ago.
