The Iberian pig is found only in Spain
Products made from Iberian pigs are only made in four areas of Spain: Huelva, Cáceres/Badajoz, Salamanca, and Córdoba. Iberian pigs are typically brought up in the high-altitude parts of these areas, as the environment is said to impact the meat’s flavor. Costco is saving us not only money, but also a long flight to Spain!
