The beginnings of Cecinas Pablo can be traced back to the basement of a butcher’s, where Pablo Barros started to produce the traditional cecina that he could not find for his establishment.
The origins of Cecinas Pablo go back to Cárnicas Pablo, a butcher’s in the downtown of Astorga that Pablo Barros de Arriba opened together with his wife Ángeles Cordero. Since they could not find traditionally made cecina and other cured meats, they started producing them in the basement of their establishment. They wanted to rediscover the traditional process of salting and curing cecina the way it was done in the villages of the area in the old days. The “word of mouth” did the rest.
Cecinas Pablo was founded in 1993.
The company's drive for continual improvement has led to a series of expansions since 1993, allowing it to take on new challenges and reach new markets, as well as continue developing innovative projects.conservation
