Fillo’s Sofrito Beans is a line of fully cooked beans seasoned with sofrito—an aromatic cooking base used throughout Latin America to give foods bold flavor. They use real sofrito: fresh vegetables, herbs and spices cooked with olive oil—a method that extracts bold flavor and nutrients. The only other ingredients are beans, sea salt and water.

The team at Fillo’s has an international background, but their individual stories have a common element: the Americas. The same applies to the food they make, which might have origins elsewhere, but here in the Americas has become something unique. In the spirit of exploration, they carefully source ingredients and develop production techniques that respect tradition. And they do it with today’s busy, health-conscious shopper in mind.
An idea simmers:
Brother Daniel Caballero and Antonio Caballero are Cuban-Panamanian Americans, with extended family from Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the United States. They started Fillo’s company because some of the beloved Latin American foods from their childhood weren’t readily available. Their goal was to introduce a bold new product line that would offer something authentic to the broadest possible audience, and in 2016, they did just that with Fllo’s, the first name in premium sofrito beans.
They value authenticity and convenience equally, and refuse to sacrifice either while remaining dedicated to keeping the labels clean and the products packed with nutrition.
