Andorra's high-quality meat is a benchmark in gastronomy, thanks to the best-kept secret of the Andorran livestock farmers: namely, tradition. You’ll find beef with the seal of protected geographical indication (GI), as well as ox, lamb, goat and horse meat with the “Meat of Controlled Quality from Andorra” seal. One company whose products bear this seal is Poltrand, which specialises, as its name in Catalan indicates, in horse meat. At the Principality’s many points of sale and restaurants you can enjoy the fruits of the years of hard work carried out by the Association of Andorran Livestock Farmers. Look for the seal and certificate that distinguish and guarantee the Meat of Andorra!

Cured meats are an important part of our gastronomic produce. A respect for tradition, adherence to the methods of preparation handed down from generation to generation, the quality of the ingredients, and the natural conditions of our environment all combine to produce botifarres, llonganisses, bull and other handmade specialities of the highest quality, such as those made by Cal Jordi and Els Escaubells, which can be found in specialised establishments. 

The altitude and the well-tended land produce treasures such as vegetables and legumes.These products are the result of a commitment to the environment and to organic growing practices that prevent the use of chemical pesticides or herbicides. Houses with a long agricultural tradition such as Can Sona and Cortals Llumeneres, or newly established as Adrimar (Borda Jovell), sell seasonal vegetables and produce and organic eggs, among other local products. The company Biobo also works in this regard preparing traditional dishes with local organic products.

Another local product is chicken eggs. This culinary staple also benefits from our country's climate and altitude.
