Ecoficus is a Spanish family-owned company, specialised in making delicious delicacies based on organic figs. The farm is located in the region of Cáceres, in Extremadura, located just outside the ancient village of Almoharin: THE city of figs. The grown figs are called Calabacitas, which means little pumpkin. Spanish figs are also known as appetiser figs, candy figs or baby figs, because of their soft casing, small size and honey-coloured, thin skin and sweet taste.They are, therefore, very suitable as an appetiser as well as a healthy snack or processed in dishes.
Ecoficus grows the little figs organically and then lets them dry in the sun. These figs are packed with complex carbohydrates, are a source of iron and rich in dietary fibres, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Some products from the Ecoficus range are fig chocolates, fig cake and fig snacks, including orange, raisins, cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Of course, it also includes 'ordinary' dried figs. This way, snacking can be healthy!
