Espuña was founded in 1947 in Olot (Spain) as a manufacturer of sausages. Since then Espuña has extended its product range and is today present on the national and international market. Espuña closed the 2009 financial year with total sales of 9,148 tonnes and a turnover of 81.5 million Euros. Our headquarters today are located in the city of Olot, while our production plants are located in Olot (where we have two factories, one multi-production and sliced products and another for Serrano ham), Utrillas (a plant for sliced products) and Argentina (a multi-product plant). The 4 factories comprise an industrial surface area of 46,098 m2 and employ a total of 427 people. Exportations comprise almost 25% of our total turnover, and although our presence is steadily spreading around the world, our markets are concentrated in France, with more than 50% of our export turnover, Portugal and Britain with 24% and Germany with 7%. Espuña also exports to other countries which are highly strict with respect to quality and food hygiene standards, such as Japan. Our plant in Argentina allows Espuña to cover the needs of the South American market, which is still being developed.
Espuña was the first company in the world to commercialize high pressure processed meat products. "Cold pasteurisation" ensures the freshness of cooked products during their useful life, while enabling us to offer a range of cured, sliced products which can be kept out of the cold.Visit the website
