Estany Bages Cargol is a family business located in Catalonia, in the town of Fonollosa in the county of Bages. We are a team of 20 people, who work with diligence and dedication to prepare our company’s food products: mushrooms, snails and pulses.

With 50+ years of experience in the sale of wild mushrooms (1968) and 30+ in the sale of live snails (1992), we are pioneers in the Iberian Peninsula. Our extensive industry experience has given us a comprehensive knowledge of the land, thereby enabling us to secure the very best raw materials.


Thanks to our facilities, adapted in line with the regulations on quality, health and safety control and the environment, we are able to offer a wide range of products with different formats and preservation systems, supplied both in bulk and individually in order to meet the needs of all our customers. Our range includes frozen, dried, canned and cooked mushrooms; live, frozen, canned and cooked snails; and dried, canned and cooked pulses. The cooked dishes we prepare at our factory are made with mushrooms, snails and pulses, using artisanal methods and mostly without additives. We use traditional recipes as well as offering more innovative culinary creations.

Philosophy and values

From the beginning, our strong commitment to locally grown pulses has led us to work in partnership with local producers and neighbouring counties, helping them to ensure the survival of their best and most unique native varieties. The result is high-quality products that represent their region.

We are embracing energy efficiency and sustainability through the self-consumption of energy from solar panels on the roof of our factory. These ideals motivate us to innovate and improve, while maintaining the culture and traditions of our land in the form of natural food products: mushrooms, snails and pulses.
