Balfegó is the fifth generation of fishermen from L’Ametlla de Mar, a town in the northwest Mediterranean Sea with a strong fishing tradition. In the 80s we decided to bet on bluefin tuna husbandry. After many years of effort, we have managed to transform the traditional fishing of this species to become the world's leading company in catching, feeding, studying and marketing bluefin tuna in accordance with an innovative and sustainable business system, both socially and environmentally.

We are a family business totally committed to people and the world we live in. Our history is one of constant improvement in which, thanks to our human team, have turned adversities into new opportunities.

The company we know today was created by Manel and Pere Vicent Balfegó, Montse Brull and Salomé Gaseni in 2002 with a single-minded purpose: to bring the best bluefin tuna to the best restaurants in the world.

Currently, the Balfegó company -present in more than 30 countries- employs more than 200 people directly and another 200 indirectly, faithful to its origins and its essence: honesty and proximity.

Our experience acquired over the years and our innovative nature has led us to be pioneers, both in the field of sustainability (certified by AENOR) and in technology. What motivates us is a spirit of continuous improvement, evolution, transparency and an unfaltering will to share this with others, showing that doing things correctly is the right way to go.

Moreover, we want to continue improving, not only by being the best bluefin tuna company in the world, but also being the best tuna company for the world itself. We want to make this journey together to fill kitchens with illusion, to share unique experiences, to savour and enjoy successes, and to continue building our dream.
