Robaina Foods was born as "Canarifornia" in 2015 to give San Diego a taste of what authentic flavors of the Canary Islands are all about.
A family recipe came to mind and started selling the unique canary mojo sauce with baby potatoes (papas arrugadas) at San Diego local Farmer's Markets on a customized Golf Cart.
Robaina Foods is now partnering with Canary Islands craftsmen to maintain traditions that have been handed down through the generations and help promote authentic crafts made in the Canary Islands.
Born and bread in Gran Canaria, love brought Enrique to San Diego, CA. He was invited to dinner parties and instructed not to bring wine, just a jar of canary mojo. His friends had fallen in love with the most traditional condiment of the Canary Islands (Spain).
“We are mojo addicts and eat it with everything”, Enrique says. For fun, he set up a mojo stand at the local farmers markets.
He was craving the flavors he grew up with and had the vision to create something that was not yet available. “I wanted to do something I’m proud of”, he says.
In 2017 he launched Robaina Foods focusing just in the process that makes his mojo different from all the rest. Less garlicky, no bread nor almonds based. The other purpose behind Robaina Foods is bringing people real food with no allergiens, having a social impact.
