Agromar dates back to 1948, when Armando Barrio Mata, first had the idea of packing the eggs of sea urchins, at that time very abundant on the Asturian rocks and beaches on Northwest Spain.

Initially intended for family consumption and as gifts, it did not take long before Armando saw the commercial possibilities for this unique product which he knew how to develop.

In those years, there were many small traditional canners scattered throughout the Cantabrian coast, such as the one his father ran back in 1920. Armando himself manufactured and sold salted fish.
