ANGULAS AGUINAGA, S.A., was founded in Aguinaga (Guipúzcoa-Spain) in 1974 to market elvers, a sector in which it became the leading company. In the late 80s it became clear the biological crisis affecting the elver market. Angulas Aguinaga, S.A looked for possible substitutes started a research at the Instituto del Frío from the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (C.S.I.C.). Spanish patent Nº 8901508 and European patent Nº 90500037.8 were taken out, allowing us to create the current “elver substitute” based on surimi which our company commercialises under the brand name of, among others, “LA GULA DEL NORTE” and which has now became a common product on Spanish tables.
Angulas Aguinaga, S.A has always been an innovative company committed to the continuous development of new products. As a result of this policy, Angulas Aguinaga, S.A develops and markets a range of surimi-based products – “KRISSIA”. These products are similar to crab stick meat, lobster tails, shredded crab and crab slices.
