Collverd farms in Empordà, Girona.
The Gourmet Corporation, B2B gourmet food provider, has partnered up with Collverd, which boasts of more than 40 years specializing in the breeding and high quality production of duck-derived products. Collverd is also renowned for being the very first company to focus on the production of foie gras, fattened duck liver, in Spain. Their products come from the Mulard breed of duck, which during the breeding stage spend their time outdoors in the Empordà farms and follow a completely natural diet based on cereals and corn.
The motto Collverd lives by, «from egg to plate», holds every bit of truth as their ducks are born in their own farms and make their way into their own slaughterhouse, attesting to a carefully supervised production cycle.
Technavio, a research and advisory company that focuses on providing market research, trends, analysis and reports, estimates the growth to accelerate at a compound annual growth rate of over 2% during the forecast period due to continued growth in demand.
This is most probably due to the rising awareness of health benefits that come from including duck meat in your diet since it’s rich in protein, essential omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, K), minerals (copper, iron, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc) and antioxidants. Duck is also considered more flavourful than chicken and turkey thanks to its fat content.
