Xerigots is a cheese refining and marketing center based in Vilafranca del Penedès and they supply cheese to more than 400 restaurants, shops and other establishments in Catalonia and the state. Also, through their online store, they offer selections of cheese that they serve at home to end customers and organize activities to spread the culture of cheese. During its career, Xerigots has supported social and cultural activities and entities such as the Rebost Solidari, the Most Festival or the Castellers de Vilafranca, among others.

The Familia Torres Foundation was created in 1986 by Miguel Torres Carbó and his wife Margarita Riera. Since then, it has collaborated in more than 400 cooperation projects in 12 countries, promoted by public and private organizations. Currently, it is articulated in five areas of action: aid to children, women’s empowerment, improving the health of groups with needs and at risk of exclusion, the promotion of culture and humanitarian aid in natural disasters.
