The story of our company starts in 1973 when a small business was established in Barcelona, dedicated mainly to retail sales of cured ham and cold meats. In 1980s we initiated a vertical business integration process with an emphasis of high-quality cured hams. To that end, a small ham curing centre was launched in Castilla y Leon. The main focus is on production of white-layer ham.
When Spain entered the European Common Market, we initiated the process of adjusting our facilities to the Community regulations, achieving recognition of the Meat Industry accredited by the EC.
In 1990s we commenced production of ham legs and shoulders from the Iberian pork, making them our star products. From that point forward, Castanoble continued to evolve and improve its production processes, becoming a quality reference figure in the Spanish ham market.
Our ham drying centre is located in Riego de la Vega leonese municipality in Castilla y Leon province (Spain). Rural setting of this geographical location features an exceptional climate, which contributes to obtaining outstanding high-quality products.
This 5000 square meters plant is equipped with modern facilities for the complete elaboration process of cured ham. They feature freezing, conservation and salting chambers, a settlement or post-salting area, natural drying chambers and maturing cellars employed during the last phase of curing.
Headquarters in Barcelona
Our facilities located in Barcelona and inaugurated in 2005 after an extensive reform also host our headquarters. They also include a warehouse, conservation chambers, a deboning hall and a vacuum packaging station, allowing us to meet the needs of our clients, especially those from the hospitality and catering sector that require a customized, quick and efficient service.
