Majorica, the pearl company that was founded in Manacor in 1890 by German Edward Heush, filed for bankruptcy in October 2020. Now operated by the Majolaperla business group, the CEO, Didier Grupposo, says that "the new Majorica is entering a new and exciting stage after the crisis suffered during the pandemic".

"We are now in an awakening phase, guaranteeing the new Majorica's present and future. We are the company that invented organic pearls, so when consumers think of pearls, they should think of Majorica."
