9th of March 2012, Salamanca.- Jamones Aljomar is currently undertaking a large-scale expansion project of its Iberian meat products, a strategy stimulated in particular by its continual interest in the opening of new markets, as well as its innate passion to promote the Iberian ham culture throughout the world. According to the company’s calculations, in 2012 - 2013, it will be in a position to launch itself in 30 countries (in Europe, America, Asia and Africa), which means that international markets will represent 15-20% of Jamones Aljomar’s turnover.
It is a true culinary treasure and a unique product in the world. Its external appearance instantly invites you to taste it, and, if a professional ham cutter is present, none can resist tasting a delicate and exquisite slice. That is right; we are talking about Iberian pork ham, which has found the best environmental conditions in Guijuelo (Salamanca district) for its curing process and maturation, with dry cold winters and mild short summers.
