Our diligent dedication to the traditional production of our hams and sausages became the benchmark for producers of cured meats.

The quality, the driving force behind our daily operations, is guaranteed by the Guijuelo Regulatory Board (based in Salamanca) and by ministerial health inspections, which also confirm the safety of our products.
