The purpose of Argal is to understand and satisfy the needs of those consumers looking for quality and tradition in every one of their products. After so many years of experience, Argal has never changed their attitude, effort and compromise. Time has proved this is the only way to achieve success.


Where The Meat Come From

Extremadura – Fregenal de la Sierra (Ham, Iberian Cured Meats)

In the heart of the Extremaduran Dehesa lies a village abounding with tradition. Here Ibérico pigs are reared and fed not only on acorns and pasture but also on air, sun, clouds and mountains. This accounts for their Ibérico nature, unique and unmistakable.


Navarra – Lumbier (Cured Meats, Patés)

The company location came into being at the foot of the Pyrenees, in one of the regions with deep-seated traditions in the production of salamis. A land of traditions and contrasts, in which Argal still continues processing the salamis with the guidelines of master craftsmen: raw materials of the highest quality and recipes provide that everlasting good taste.


Catalunya – Miralcamp (Fuet, Sliced Products, Turkey, Cooked, Whole Piece, Cold Cuts: Chopped)

The region is known for, among other things, its diverse cuisine and culinary traditions. From these culinary traditions, heavily influenced by the Mediterranean culture, Argal inherited very characteristic naturally dried sausages, such as fuet or longaniza de payés. At Argal, they prepare these products according to traditional recipes.


Argal’s top priority is to offer the best quality products with maximum food safety.
