Sustainability

Protecting the holm oak

We make efficient use of the resources through extensive cattle raising and the care, protection and reforestation of the oak trees.

These centennial trees are the basis of our unique diet.

Committed to renewable energies

We are dedicated to sustainable development, making responsible use of energy and thus minimising our environmental impact.

With this investment in photovoltaic solar energy, we are using one of the most efficient renewable technologies in the fight against climate change.

ARAPORCEI provides conformity assessment services, under the requirements of the International Standards UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17020 for inspection activities and UNE-EN ISO/IEC 17065 for the certification of agri-food products, processes and services.

It is a symbol and guarantee of the quality, exclusivity and authenticity of our products. Los Pedroches is one of only four Protected Designations of Origin for Iberian Cured Meat in Spain. This seal is a European recognition, which preserves the reputation of this area that is so intimately linked to the Iberian pigs.

Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) products are those whose quality or characteristics are due to the geographical environment with its natural and human factors, and whose production, processing and preparation are always carried out in the defined geographical area from which they take their name.

The 100% Raza Autóctona seal tells us more than just the origin of the products. It tells us about the history of our cattle breeders who, generation after generation, work to conserve pure Spanish native breeds, while supporting the rural environment and the conservation of our biodiversity.
