The company was born in 1964 from the hands of Antonio Cerezo in a small shop in Terrassa where the hams he brought from his home town (Serón) started to be successful. With the addition of José Antonio Roldán in the middle of the seventies, the fame of the hams quality was getting higher.
Because of the demand of the local traditional trade, the old shop becomes a small 140 m² regional wholesale warehouse, with a work force made up of three people. In the middle of the eighties, distribution agreements were reached with first iberic brands: COVAP (Coop. Valle Pedroches) et Sánchez Romero Carvajal (5J). In 1988 new facilities of 1,400 m² were opened in Ctra. Matadepera with the first Artesanía Ibérica shop of the company.
In the nineties started the big development of Cerezo with approximately a 20% annual growth throughout the decade. There are more than 30 employees and the product portofolio was expanding. It was at that time that production and sale of Christmas gift baskets began and that 2 new shops were opened in Hospitalet and Cornella de Llobregat.
From 2000, exclusive distribution agreements were reached with brands whose prestige and reliability are famous: Cordoniu, Coqueya cheeses, Jamones de Juviles, Rosario virgin oil, etc. It was also that year that started the export activity and the participation in international fairs. In addition, 600 m² were added to the original warehouse and a new one of 1,500 m² was bought in the Can Petit area in order to favour the production of Christmas gift baskets and to improve logisitics.
New shops were opened in Barcelona and Santa Coloma de Gramanet and the workforce exceeded 50 people.
In 2007 the company moved to 7500 m² modern facilities to unify the making of the gift baskets with distribution.
Nowadays, Cerezo has a turnover higher than 16 millions Euros and more than 6,000 customers. The company sells its products in 10 European countries. 220,000 hams and more than 40,000 gift baskets are sold each year. In 2011 the company employs more than 70 people.
