SUPPLY


The initial supply phase is key, vital for a company that buys and select live product. At El Encinar de Humienta we select product from the source, working closely with cattle farmers.

We are strongly committed to livestock in our area of influence (Extremadura, Castilla y León, Castilla-La Mancha and Andalusia), where 75% of cows in Spain are raised.

We participate actively in managing livestock farms and are co-owners (jointly with certain cooperatives) of some of the most modern feedlots.

 

RECEPTION AND SLAUGHTER


Our team’s know-how and the high degree of in-house expertise underpin our everyday production processes.

Animal welfare is paramount in all the process stages, from animal stay in herds and foodlots or transport to stabling and slaughtering. Personnel involved in these areas is aware and trained for a proper performance and the Head of Animal Welfare oversees the process to ensure the correct practice at all times.

The slaughter stage stands out for the technical means available and compliance with the APPC and the international IFS standard in terms of production processes, while the whole project is overseen by the official Veterinarian Service and the Quality and Food Safety Department in El Encinar de Humienta.

Following this line and to facilitate the process and improve product quality, we have deployed a fast cooling tunnel, maintenance and conservation cameras whose cold equipment and controls help us to obtain a high quality, cool and safe product.
