The seal of quality
Seal of quality of the Consorcio del Jamón Serrano Español
Serrano ham bearing the “Consorcio Serrano” seal of quality is guaranteed to have been produced in line with the association’s demanding quality standards and have passed rigorous quality controls so that they can be exported.¡, to offer a premium Serrano ham, we select the best pieces by hand, one by one, from the best producers of Serrano spanish ham.
This seal guarantees a traditional, unique ham, always elaborated in Spain with 100% Spanish raw materials. Its sensory qualities (essentially, texture and taste) differentiate it from other Serrano hams, as well as other cured products such as Prosciutto di Parma or Bayonne Ham that can be found on the foreign market, due to its excellence and refinement.
This seal can be found on all Serrano ham products, no matter their presentation:
- On boneless serrano ham pieces.
- On blocks of boneless serrano ham.
- All the above with the numbered control labels.
- On sliced serrano spanish ham packages.
Only a limited production of hams is awarded the “ConsorcioSerrano Certified Quality Seal”
The Spanish Serrano Ham Consortium is an association of traditional Spanish Serrano ham producers who have united to defend the traditional method of producing Spanish Serrano ham and to promote authentic, quality Serrano ham, that guarantees that all Serrano ham marketed under the “Consorcio Serrano” countermark comply with the strictest quality standards. Only a limited amount of Spanish Serrano Hams are worthy of the “Exclusive Signature”.
This Serrano Spanish Ham Consortium Seal, which guarantees that the ham is of the highest quality, is what has gained the trust of importers, distributors, and consumers, and helped the Consorcio to seal 14,000,000 pieces of Serrano ham in July 2017.
