Ibérico de Bellota S.A. (IBESA) is one of the founding companies of the Los Pedroches Designation of Origin.
It is located in Villanueva de Córdoba, a municipality in the province of Córdoba. It originated in the industry in 1988, when they noticed that competition in the market was very high and that the big brands and designations of origin were above them.
The founders of IBESA had to prove that they had the largest dehesa in the world, something unknown at the time. That is why they decided to create the Los Pedroches Designation of Origin, setting very strict requirements for rearing and fattening in the open range, as well as a global brand that could be known in the market. And they succeeded.
In the world we live in, it is important to know the origin of the products we buy, and even more so if these products are foodstuffs.
The information provided to the consumer is indispensable for him to get an idea of what he has in front of him before deciding whether to buy it or not.
For this reason, a product marked by a European Union Protected Designation of Origin, such as the Los Pedroches PDO, is an additional guarantee for the product and the brand, which confers certification of origin and quality.
The staff working for Ibérico de Bellota S.A. are farmers who manage to keep intact the tradition inherited from their ancestors in the rearing of pure Iberian pigs, so as never to lose the brand and the tradition.
People with concerns, able to see a little beyond Los Pedroches, beyond the breeding and fattening of pigs. Able to see a way of life in which to create products and a brand to market IBESA.
The hand and knowledge of a good professional, together with the microclimate of the Valle de los Pedroches, an area of great beauty that alternates the presence of plains and cultivated fields, allows us to offer hams and shoulders of unequalled flavour and recognised prestige at world level.
The dehesa is the beginning of a long process that lasts up to six years and it is essential to have the best breeders in order to obtain the best raw material from which to obtain authentic pata negra products.
We present some of the farmers who are part of the IBESA staff and who make the quality of the products possible:
Some of its outstanding products are: hams, shoulders, “cañas” and sausages, packs and sliced products and Montanera selection.
IBESA combines tradition and innovation. The products are made with the affection of their ancestors without neglecting new technologies. It is important to note that they create their own energy, so respect for the environment is a priority.
