History

The company was born in 1964 by Antonio Cerezo in a small shop in Terrassa where the hams he brought from his hometown (Serón) begin to have great success. With the incorporation of José Antonio Roldán in the mid-70s, the popularity of the quality of their products is growing. Due to the demand of the local traditional trade, the old shop is converted into a small wholesale warehouse of 140 m², of regional scope, with a commercial team made up of three people.

In the middle of the 80´s agreements of distribution of first brands in Iberian producst are agreed: COVAP (Cooperativa Ganadera of the Valley of the Pedroches) and Sánchez Romero Carvajal (five jotas, 5J). In 1988, the new facilities were opened in the Ctra. Matadepera with 1400 m² and the first own store of Artesanía Ibérica. In the 90s, the great expansion of Cerezo began with an annual growth of around 20% throughout the decade. The number of workers exceeds thirty and the range of products is extended. It is at this time that begins with the production and sale of Christmas hampers and the opening of 2 new stores in Hospitalet and Cornella de Llobregat.

From the year 2000, exclusive distribution agreements were signed with brands of recognized prestige and solvency: Codorniu, Coqueya cheeses, Juviles de Jamones, Virgen del Rosario extra virgin oils, etc. It is also from this year that the export activity begins and the participation in international fairs. The original warehouse is also expanded by 600 m² more and a new 1,500 m² warehouse is acquired in the Can Petit Undustrial estate in Terrassa to encourage the production of Christmas hampers  and to improve logistics. New stores are opened in Barcelona and Santa Coloma de Gramanet and Cerezo’s human team exceeds 50 workers. In 2007 the company moved to modern facilities of more than 7500 m² to unify the manufacture of Christmas hampers  with the distribution. In 2011, the human team exceeds 70 people. During 2013, Distribuciones del Jamón Cerezo, dared to make the definitive leap by buying the Ham and Serrano ham dryers cellars  from Almería. The facilities have 7000 m² and a production of more than 180,000 pieces of ham and serrano shoulders.

In 2015, it was decided to give a new impetus to the Iberian ham production itself with the acquisition of a new plant in Jabugo, which is founded under the name of Altanza Jabugo. These new facilities, have 9,000m² of which include dryer and natural cellars for 130,000 Iberian ham, cebo and cebo de campo, as well as Iberian shoulders  At present, Cerezo has a turnover of over € 18 million and a portfolio of more than 6,000 customers. It sells to 10 European countries and sells more than 220 thousand pieces of ham and more than 40,000 Christmas hampers  a year.
