Throughout the 19th Century, Mallorca developed overseas commerce in Spanish colonies as well as other Caribbean countries, the West Indies & Latin America. Yet it was in the 1860´s when the owners of the Can Guixe furnace, the Domenech family, were asked by the shipowners to produce a bread substitute, with the same properties as traditional bread but longlasting in order to withstand the long oceanic passages. Thus Inca, a small city in the heart of Mallorca is where Quely biscuits were produced for the first time though in those days the biscuit was referred to as “oil biscuits” (one of the main ingredients) or “Inca biscuits” due to its origin. 1853 is when the Domenech family founded their grocery store. A few years later, around 1860, the family business flourished with the creation of a traditional furnace with which they started producing the Quely biscuits used to supply the commercial fleet of Palma, capital city of the small Mediterranean island of Mallorca. For over 150 years the Domenech family have run & expanded their business. Over the years the family run furnace became what is now a structured company expanding their activities from the local market to international sales. The constant technical improvements combining local knowledge together with the best technology available, the constant growth of the facilities & a more professional structure has resulted in Quely becoming the modern & competitive company that it is today without its products losing any of that artisan home made touch.
