GARCIA DE POU's main goal is to constantly increase the level of satisfaction of our customers. To achieve this aim, we focus on offering an optimum service and a standardised quality in our products, always following the applicable legal and our own requirements. The constant evaluation of our production processes and our suppliers towards greater efficiency and flexibility will allow us to reach this goal.
The most extensive range of supplies for the hospitality and catering sector
García de Pou is a pioneer specialising in the manufacture of disposable non-food products in Spain, offering the most extensive selection of supplies for the hospitality and catering sector. The company currently boasts a factory floor spanning 17,500 m² and warehouses spanning 52,550 m² in Ordis and Vila-sacra on the Costa Brava – a prime location and logistically-strategic site for supplying European markets.
At García de Pou we manufacture and customise napkins, tablecloths, plates and cups, paper bags, hamburger wrappers, and cardboard packaging for takeaway food, among others. We also sell products for table service, bar and buffet, kitchens and storage, hygiene and protection, and guest amenities to cover the everyday needs of the HORECA sector.
More than 6,000 products
Our annual product catalogue gathers together approximately 6,000 items across over 400 pages.
The core part of our catalogue is formed of disposable items, however it also features more long-lasting products, such as bartending tools, tableware for buffets and kitchen utensils.
At our facilities we produce approximately half of the products that we sell, importing the rest to offer a comprehensive service to our customers. We continuously improve our processes so that in each catalogue we can offer items manufactured with more sustainable, recyclable and biodegradable raw materials.
Building trust since 1884
In 1884 Luis García opened a paper bag workshop and print shop together with his wife, Francisca de Pou, in Figueres, where he had been posted a few years earlier to run the town’s first railway station. It was there that the entrepreneurial spirit of the García de Pou family began to take shape, the same spirit that has been passed down across five generations and that still remains to this day.
It was Luis García, the fourth generation of the family and current managing director, who made the decision to gear the company towards the HORECA market. From then on, García de Pou has specialised in the manufacture and sale of disposable products meeting the everyday needs of hotels, restaurants, cafés and event companies.
In 1974 the company relocated to Vila-sacra.
In 1986 the family company started a new adventure: exporting. To begin with, it sold goods to neighbouring countries such as France and Portugal, however, over the years, García de Pou has consolidated markets in 60 countries.
In 2002 García de Pou opened its current factory in Ordis, a prime location and logistically-strategic site for supplying southern European markets. At present the Ordis facilities boast 57,150 m² of both completely refurbished and newly-built industrial units, which, together with the current facilities in Vila-sacra and the retail outlets in Madrid, Barcelona and the Canary Islands, span a total of 73,150 m².

With a company structure formed of 400 employees, we attend to over 25,000 clients, among them Costa Cruceros, Metro, Pomona, Retif, Vega, Bunzl and GM Foods.
