Our Company, NETASA, was founded in 1975 with the aim of continuing with the elaboration of the autochthonous peppers which are grown in our area "La Vera" (Spain), and to transform them into Smoked Paprika Powder. Our Company, due to our location in the West of Spain (Extremadura), mainly elaborates these autochthonous peppers since the beginnings of our activities.
The Smoked Paprika Powder “La Chinata” is elaborated following the traditional process of our area, with smoke from the combustion of oak wood. This paprika was recognised by the Spanish Government as a product with the status of Denomination of Quality, and afterwards, they were conferred the status of Denomination of Origin “Pimentón de la Vera”, a body regulated by the Spanish Government which supervises and controls the final quality of the product.
Actually, “La Chinata”, has got a very high prestige because of its smoky aroma, excellent bouquet and great stability of colour. We have been of the pioneers in trying to keep with the traditional method of elaboration and “La Chinata” is very much appreciated by the meat industry of our country for the elaboration of the typical Spanish “chorizo” and all its derivatives, as well as being a fundamental condiment for the preparation and seasoning of different dishes containing meat, fish and vegetables, including the most typical Spanish dishes like Paella.
