The pork industry is where Grupo Jorge began and it is our main business. We started in 1940 by selling pork and we soon added breeding and fattening to our activities. We subsequently expanded the business by adding slaughterhouses, cutting plants and the processing of pork by-products and the curing and sale of serrano and Iberian ham. We are currently market leaders in Spain and Europe and we export to over 100 countries around the world.

OUR PROCESSED PRODUCTS
We breed pigs, and produce and market the most exclusive pork meat products
With a deep respect for tradition and artisan production methods, at Grupo Jorge, we provide the end customer with processed products made with pork meat of the highest possible quality. Our farms are located in the places of origin of Iberian pork, such as Extremadura or Jabugo, and of the best serrano ham, such as Teruel. We are extremely demanding in our curing and transformation processes, which we combine with the latest technology. Thanks to this, we produce exceptional sausages, hams and shoulders.
