Martinez Somalo (La Rioja)
Martinez Somalo was founded in 1901 by Don Jose Martinez Campo. Don Jose was part of a large family and several siblings were dedicated to the manufacturing and sale of meat products. At that time products derived from the pork raw material and Don Jose would trade them in his hometown and closest villages. The processing plant was called “La Gloria Riojana”.
La Gloria Riojana was at that time a small manufacturing plant located in Baños de Rio Tobia (La Rioja), where the company is located at the moment. The own characteristics of the Baños de Rio Tobia village, at 600 meters above sea level, located in the valley of the river Najerilla and surrounded by mountains, allowed cold winters, hot summers and springs and mild autumns, which created the perfect micro climate that would favour the elaboration and drying of pork derived products.
Since May 2011, the company is being managed by the fourth family generation, maintaining the family spirit, but with the support of valuable and reliable professionals in management positions. Martinez Somalo is a company committed to people, to the village, where it is located, Baños de Rio Tobia and its region. A company characterised for its great respect to every employee, customers and suppliers. It is also a respected company, with social responsibility and aware that its obligation is to generate wealth and employment.
