Confitería Americana, S.A. de C.V was founded by Doña Carmen Arévalo Lindo, Salvadorean citizen and Don Antonio Heriberto Cabrera, Venezuelan citizen, during 1930 in the City of San Salvador, El Salvador.
Its foundation was due to the willingness of Don Antonio to develop and produce candies which at that time were non-existent in the country and were obtained only by importing them. Since Don Antonio had the know-how in candy making, he and his wife started to elaborate candy in a very traditional way. The first products made were sugar coated peanuts, sweet orange, nance, coconut milk candy, among others which immediately became the favorite of Salvadorians.
Currently, Confitería Americana uses cutting-edge technology to diversify and scale their production across the region.
