Tradition and Overcoming
Farcedo selects the region’s best livestock, raised in pastures dottedwith holm and cork oaks, to painstakingly produce traditional Mediterranean hams, pork shoulders, and sausages that are healthy for you and your loved ones.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF OUR FAMILY BUSINESS PROJECT
All the team of people that make Farcedo possible work to offer our customers products of the Mediterranean diet made with natural ingredients. We follow the artisan recipes learned from our grandparents, but as we know that times change and also how to feed ourselves, we have adapted our products to the new times, making them healthier; How ?, selecting even more carefully the lean with which we make our sausage and thus reducing its fat content. Result, products with the original flavor of all the life, rich in oleic acid, monounsaturated fatty acids that help to control cholesterol levels and prevent cardiovascular diseases, antioxidant vitamin E that delays aging, vitamin B1, B6, B12 and acid Folic that is beneficial for the nervous system. So this is the reason why we say that in Farcedo we take care of your health and that of yours.
Our facilities are located in Hornachos (Extremadura), in the southwest of Spain, in a region internationally recognized for its commitment to caring for the environment, for its water reserves and natural diversity that make it a unique region in the world for Iberian pig breeding.
At Farcedo we select the best native cattle of the region raised in montanera, wooded pastures of holm oaks, cork oaks and stubble, the most natural and fundamental habitat for our cattle. This careful selection is the basis of the quality of our products.
We combine the manufacture of an artisan product with the investment in cutting-edge technology in food safety. Thus, our products undergo an exhaustive veterinary control, PH control, acidity and traceability that give rise to healthy, 100% natural and healthy products that have the ISO 22000 Food Safety Certificate.
Our grandparents had a small family charcuterie in Hornachos (Badajoz) Extremadura – Spain. There, the alma mater of the current FARCEDO project, Francisco Acedo Galan, began to learn the trade.
The restless and observant character of Francisco Acedo Galan led him to take the products from his parents’ charcuterie, taking them to the farmhouses of Extremadura and thus beginning the commercialization of sausages, hams and Farcedo pallets locally.
Constitution of Farcedo as a company. The conjugation of the name of its founder Francisco Acedo gives rise to the name of the brand and we add an ‘R’ to give strength to the name and thus transmit the whirlwind of energy and motivation that moves us since then. We could say that the name was the result of an exhaustive work of an advertising company, but it was not like that, it was the idea of the inseparable travel mate of Francisco, our mother, Carmen.
Farcedo begins to market its products regionally.
In this year we take another leap forward and build new facilities and with the entry of the second generation, we begin our opening to the national market.
With the restless character inherited from our parents, the second generation of Farcedo began to market our products in international markets. Europe, China, Hong Kong … there we go!
We created the Momentum selection product line for the marketing of our products in the Gourmet channel.
Farcedo takes care of the feeding of Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, British, Swiss, Swedish, Norwegian and Honkonian families.
