FAMILY BUSINESS

Jamones Álvaro Galán is a family business run by the joint effort of its founders and their children. The company is built on the work of an excellent, goal-driven team that strives to always keep alive the philosophy with which the business was conceived and developed: the elaboration of a high-quality ham based, on the one hand, upon the one-hundred-year tradition of Montánchez’s ham, and, on the other hand, upon the care, patience and fondness devoted to its elaboration by the two founders of the business, Mr. Álvaro Galán and Mrs. María Sánchez. It was in the late 70s of the last century that Mr. Galán and Mrs. Sánchez managed to find the key to produce a high-end ham based on three fundamental factors, which were then characteristic of the business’ products: 100% natural curing, 100% handcrafted production and a constant search for the “perfect amount of salt.”.
