Master Craftsmen since 1775

During almost two centuries the Vicens’ Family has been loyal to the production of the artisanal nougat, and specifically to the Agramunt’s nougat. Their origin is documented for a first time in 1741, where this product appears on Noble family letters, but is known this tradition came to this village from long time ago.

Nougat activity besides agriculture has been from the beginning the economic engine on the area.

From Torrons Vicens we grant the nougat tradition since 1775. Generation after generation we produce our products on an artisanal manner.

As if time has stopped, the expert hands of our craftsmen continue today to develop our so dear sweet and still are always appreciated sweets like old times manufacturing.

In 2000 the entrepreneurs Angel Velasco and his son Angel Velasco Herrero take the management of the company and from then, the growth of the Brand has been permanent based on quality, innovation and service.
