History

The tradition of Jamones Juan Gargallo dates back to the second half of the twentieth century when its founder, Juan Gargallo, laid the foundations of a family business that has been dedicating to the production and trading of ham for decades. Back in those days, the first butcher shop was opened, where Juan Gargallo and his wife Bernardina López, with a lot of effort and special dedication reached, step by step, the affection and respect from a small neighbourhood.

After a few years, the society Jamones Juan Gargallo SAT was born and now it has its own drying shed in Albentosa (Teruel) and one more butcher shop in Valencia, located in Nuevo Centro shopping mall.

Nowadays, Juan Gargallo’s son and his family keep on preserving the homemade, familiar tradition and they have achieved the sector’s recognition as one of the most distinguished companies.
