CREATION OF THE
FAMILY BUSINESS

In 1895 Francisco Carrasco, a muleteer from Guijuelo, saw an opportunity in the arrival of the railway to this town in the province of Salamanca, thanks to a stop on the Gijón-Sevilla line. Carrasco began to take pigs from different places to the town, especially from Galicia and Extremadura, to later establish a small ham salting business.

CREATION OF THE
CARRASCO BRAND

Juan Atanasio Carrasco and his brothers started the first revolution of the brand when they bought a farm for raising Iberian pigs in Jerez de los Caballeros (Badajoz) and built a slaughterhouse in Guijuelo (Salamanca).

CONSOLIDATION

Santos Carrasco Manzano consolidated the business and developed the brand´s personality and unique values, shaped by a laudable family tradition and a deep respect for the product. He also led the process of creating the Guijuelo Designation of Origin, thus confirming his commitment to quality and professional excellence.
