Our company, Quality Natural SRL, has its headquarters in the heart of Bucovina, Putna Valley and produces trout specialties.
The factory continues the local tradition of trout processing by smoking. It is built with European funds and has the best German technology.
Valeputna, the Premium brand under which we sell our products, is a tribute to the first trout in Romania - founded here in 1896 under the name of "Valeputna Fischbruthutte" – and to the artisans to whom we owe the secrets of the recipe for smoking.
In Putna Valley was invented the local delicacy known as Cobza, smoked trout with fir cones and beechwood, dressed in fir-tree branches and tied in hazel twigs.
The story says that it was invented in 1927 on the occasion of a party at the Royal Castle in Poiana Iţcani (situated on the Putna Valley) in honour of the Crowning of His Majesty, King Mihai.
Today, in the building of the factory clad in wood, we respect the promise made to our forefathers and produce the best trout, a perfect trout!
Our policy is to work with the highest quality raw materials, to integrate into what we make as much local resources as possible and to keep our products 100% pure, natural, without additives and improvers.
Valeputna's specialties are smoked trout after the local recipe, marinated trout slices kept in various sauces, smoked trout stored in vegetable oil, spreads and trout salads.
Valeputna products enjoy the appreciation of the most famous chefs in Romania and are both in the menu of prestigious hotel chains as well as in luxury shops.
