During the second half of the nineteenth century the Plana de Vic was witness of the modernization of transport. It was in this context that Josep Riera Font, a native from Vic, but based in Barcelona, began his relationship with Salchichón. He began selling this product until his fascination with traditional Salchichón led him to set up Casa Riera Ordeix and undertake its production.
Josep Riera Font founded Casa Riera Ordeix on January 25th, 1852
Sixteen decades after its founding, the headquarters of Casa Riera Ordeix continue in Vic (Plaça dels Màrtirs, 14). That is because Casa Riera Ordeix develops the same product, made by the same family, in the same way and with the same obsession: quality.
The selection of the best ingredients, natural drying and knowledge transmitted from generation to generation has given to the Vic Salchichón by Casa Riera Ordeix a unique and exceptional bouquet able to cross borders.
And it has done it as an ambassador for the city of Vic and its region. The Vic Salchichón by Casa Riera Ordeix is a product with Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) since 2002.
The Vic Salchichón along with Truffled Salchichón, Rustic Style Salchichón and Vic Fuet, shape our menu of products. Four products recognized by their aroma, texture and flavour, anywhere in the world.
