History and evolution

The Palacios story dates back to 1960 in Albelda de Iregua (La Rioja) and the opening of a little butcher's. From the start, the outstanding 100% natural Chorizo they produced was a stand-out; in fact, they continue to use the original recipe to this day.

Testament to their decades of innovation, quality and diversification is the fact that Grupo Palacios is an icon in the modern food sector.

For last 20 years, Palacios has been present in the US market place. After the acquisition of Elore Enterprises in November 2016, the group reinforces its position as a relevant player in the specialty food marketplace in the USA.
