1900

Born in Cantabria

Cuétara originates in northern Spain, in the beautiful Liébana Valley, located in the heart of Cantabria.
The company's founders, Juan and Florencio Gómez Cuétara, were born there and lived there very humbly in their early years.

Mexico as a destination

From 1906 until the 1920s, six children from the Gómez Cuétara family emigrated to Mexico in search of a better future.
In America they created families and prospered in different commercial activities during the difficult years of the Mexican Revolution.

Even today in Mexico, the Cuétara brand, totally independent from Cuétara Europa, continues to be marketed and is one of the most popular and beloved brands on the continent.

The long-awaited return to Europe

The Gómez Cuétara brothers never forgot their origins and longed to return.

Reinosa begins to make history
