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.

Certifiers and accreditations

This certification is key for food companies striving for excellence in quality, product safety and customer satisfaction. The IFS Food Standard certifies products and production processes by assessing a food manufacturer’s ability to produce very safe, authentic and products of quality.

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.

Los Pedroches is one of only four Protected Designations of Origin for Iberian Cured Meat in Spain. 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% Native Breed” 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.
