Olmeda Orígenes: Crafting Exceptional Cooked and Smoked Hams

Olmeda Orígenes and our suppliers take pride in their legacy of perfecting the art of crafting exceptional cooked and smoked hams, an expertise honed for over half a century. At the heart of their pursuit is an unwavering commitment to using only the finest Spanish raw materials, specifically the renowned Iberian pig.

This meticulous choice serves as the foundation for their premium hams, revered for their unparalleled quality and unforgettable flavors.

The manufacturing process of Olmeda Orígenes’ Iberian cooked ham is an art in itself, with every detail carefully orchestrated to achieve perfection. The hams undergo a precise injection process, introducing essential salts and preservatives, meticulously preserving the inherent freshness and natural flavors of the hams.

Here lies the secret to the exceptional taste of the hams, ensuring that each slice delights the palate with an explosion of flavors that lingers long after consumption.

Olmeda Orígenes’ pursuit of gastronomic excellence continues through their optimal cooking and smoking techniques. The hams spend around 14 hours in a steam oven, with the final two hours dedicated to the smoking process.

Natural beechwood generates smoke through friction, infusing the hams with a distinctive bouquet. This meticulous approach imparts a charming pink hue to the hams, serving as a visual testament to the craftsmanship and dedication put into each product.
