The Ibérico pig is an indigenous species that is only found in the Iberian peninsula.
The superb quality of the meat from the Ibérico pig is down to the climate, their freedom to roam outdoors and their diet.
The age of the meat (10-18 months) gives it an attractive red colour, which means that its iron content is three to four times higher than that of white pork. It also has high zinc content and high levels of vitamins B & E.
The Ibérico pig is also fed on acorns which gives the meat its wonderful nutty flavour.
