As masters of the age-old secrets of curing ham and sausage,Chacinerías Díaz continues to practice the family art. Time has witnessed the evolution of a company that has become a reference for how to craft and produce finely cured pork products.

Each part of the process is specifically designed to meet the highest quality standards. This policy of self-reliance, combined with a century of experience has built the guarantee that our clients
receive the best product available.

The hearty breed of livestock is fed naturally and raised in our own fields and pastures of Salamanca giving rise to a final product which instills confidence to one of the greatest flavours of all time.

The new age requires new strategies and Chacinerías Díaz has managed to combine technological advances with the preservation of and respect for the natural evolution of the final product. With the same traditional methods used since the beginning, the initial cold curing process is completed with natural aging where the products remain until they acquire the consistency, smell and flavor of traditional artisanal products.
