At that time, pasta makers working only with wheat, and Joseph Espona, with its entrepreneurial and innovative, opened the way for durum wheat in Spain by convincing a large number of farmers to begin their planting and cultivation.
In 1958, Espona bought the factory in El Carpio, originally a mill, and became also in pasta factory.
