Our Story

A wise person once said…“the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”…and that is exactly what the trio behind Auyán decided to do; introduce their native Venezuelan cuisine and other Latin American culinary heritage to the Swiss market.
Auyán – the brand name of our company – comes from the Auyan-Tepui which is the most visited tepui (table-top mountain) in the Guayana Highlands (eastern part of Venezuela), situated entirely within the bounds of the Canaima National Park and birthplace of the highest waterfall in the world, Angel Falls.

The name “tequeños” comes from the town of Los Teques, capital of the state of Miranda where it is believed this food originated from. The oldest known references to it come from the first decade of the 19th century. At that time the richest families of Caracas would spend long vacation periods in Los Teques and it is believed that they started preparing them with the left over dough of another Venezuelan food “pastelitos”.

“It is said that a party is not a true Venezuelan party without tequeños”
