At Doctor Salsas we have been growing our own chillies for over 12 years.
One of the secrets of our crops is the water of the river Dúrcal, which flows straight from the Sierra Nevada. Moreover, the climate of Andalusia and the pure air of the Alpujarra of Granada are perfect for growing all kinds of chillies
By cultivating our own chillies we maintain biological diversity by encouraging the natural flowering and pollination of bees. This not only results in sustainable cultivation, but also ensures that our products are free of chemical residues.
The distinctive character of doctor salsas is characterised by the fact that they are produced domestically and in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
Our chilli farmers are an essential part of doctor salsas, that’s why we promote fair trade, basing our actions on respect and fairness in order to obtain the best products for you to enjoy to the maximum.
