PASSION for combining tradition and innovation. And despite being a product with centuries of tradition behind it, Iberian Ham is part of a sector that is reinvented every day to always offer the maximum quality in its products. Proof of this is ÍTACA (Identification, Traceability and Quality System), a digital system that incorporates and transmits the traceability of Iberian products, from the birth of the piglet to the product’s arrival at sales points. A tool which reflects the sector’s absolute commitment to transparency and quality.
