Our history

Cured past, fresh present

Where Navarra ceases to be a mountain and becomes a coastline, marking an almost perfect borderline, is Tafalla, cradle of great “joteros” (jota dancers, singers and composers) and the town where the divinities of the pig are praised more than anywhere else.

And it is here, in the heart of Navarra region, where EMBUTIDOS HORTANCO has been carrying out its business for more than 80 years. It was our grandparents Francisco and Damiana who, at that time, opened the first butcher’s shop and laid the foundations of what is now EMBUTIDOS HORTANCO.

At the end of the 1970s, the idea arose of setting up a small sausage factory to serve the Pamplona area. It was then that grandfather Paco and grandmother Consuelo, supported by their sons Javier and Carlos, the current owners of the company, began to produce their first cured sausages, chorizo cular and chorizo sarta, in the traditional way, which they served in different butcher’s shops in the capital of Navarra.

In the year 2000, the company decided to open a new line of fresh products that would bring together chistorra sausage, birica-type choricillos and fresh sausages.

By doing this, as well as offering its customers a new range of products, EMBUTIDOS HORTANCO managed to break into the hotel and catering market, which demanded professionals who could offer an artisanal product of great flavour and quality.

And it is these products that have led EMBUTIDOS HORTANCO to its greatest achievements. Proof of this are the acknowledgements obtained in 2010, 2016, and 2018 with the Third Prize and in 2012 and 2014 with the First Prize in the Navarra Chistorra Contest organised by the Navarra Butchers’ Guild.

EMBUTIDOS HORTANCO is currently expanding, with the firm intention of serving the whole of Spain and the south of France.

This is the past, present and future of this family business which, since its beginnings, has successfully evolved and adapted to the needs of the market, offering its customers high-quality artisanal products.
