Spanish company specialized in the production of cold meat products based on pork seeks a commercial agent in France
For more than 25 years, this Spanish company has been producing premium hams, from different parts of the pig; legs, shoulders, and loins. They also deal with the so-called and well-known “Ibérico” ham which comes from both front legs and from animals who are exclusively fed on acorns and natural grazing. In order to achieve the highest quality for their products, the company chooses the best slaughterhouses by doing a previous physical assessment in which they analyze the hygienic and phytosanitary conditions, the level of fat of the pork meat, the weight of the animals, the temperature of the facilities, among other relevant variables to consider. Thanks to this strict selection process of the suppliers, they meet the highest quality standards, such as the Certifood national certification and the Traditional Speciality Guaranteed (TSG) European certification. This seriousness makes their products exclusive and reliable, that is why the company is well-known in the domestic market. Additionally, the Spanish company is part of an agri-food cluster in which they collaborate looking for sinergies with other companies, so that competitiveness of the sector is increased at a national level. At present, the company does not directly sell at an international level. They do so through their national distributors who already sell their products in France and in Germany. The company is conscious that their hams are highly valued in the French market that is the main reason they are seeking a commercial agent in that country.
