In 1934, he and his wife Merçè Bosch and a few family members and employees moved to the town of El Carpio, in Cordoba province, where they founded a modern abattoir and meat industry under the name of ‘La Flor Andaluza’. The outbreak of the Spanish Civil War forced them to return home, where they took up the reins of their activity again as soon as they could. In the mid-1940s, the family business was joined by their son Joaquim Albertí and shortly afterwards it adopted the brand of ‘LA SELVA‘, the name of the county in which it is based. It then began to specialise in cooked ham, becoming one of the pioneers in the introduction of the product in Spain.
Currently we have 28,000 m² of facilities where we produce both cooked and cured meat products. We distribute under the brands of ‘LA SELVA’, highly prestigious in our country and the leader in the Premium cooked ham segment, ‘Carsodo‘, a reference in cured meats and bought in 2008, and ‘Gala‘, which is more commercially focused.
