El Catedrático is the result of three generations devoted to the world of Iberian products. Three generations that began with grandfather Manuel, back in the early decades of the twentieth century.
Our tradition began in the 1920s when Grandfather Manuel began to walk, every Tuesday of the year, the more than 40 km that separated him from the town of Vitigudino.
As a dealer and, crossing the cold landscapes of Arribes del Duero, he would arrive at the weekly market to sell the pigs he raised all year round.
Years later he would do it accompanied by his son Cesáreo, who was already six years old and was very clear about his future. In the 1980s together with his wife, Carmen, he founded the family business that took so much effort to build and that today is growing thanks to his children.
A family with the sights set on the future members of the family continuing with the Iberian legacy and bringing to each home, as they have done, the taste of authenticity, tradition and know-how.
The history of a family with a common denominator: the excellence of its products.
