During the second half of the 19th century, the city of Vic witnessed the modernisation of transport. It was in this context that Josep Riera Font, a Vic native based in Barcelona, discovered the world of Salchichón. He began by simply selling it, but his fascination with this traditional product ultimately led him to set up Casa Riera Ordeix and undertake its production.
Josep Riera Font founded Casa Riera Ordeix on 25 January 1852
Sixteen decades after its founding, the headquarters of Casa Riera Ordeix is still in Vic (Plaça dels Màrtirs 14). That is because Casa Riera Ordeix still offers the same product, made in the same way by the same family, with one priority in mind: quality.
Our selection of the finest ingredients, dry curing process and knowledge passed down from generation to generation have made Vic Salchichón by Casa Riera Ordeix a unique and exceptional product that has travelled the world over.
And it has done so as an ambassador for the city of Vic and its region. Vic Salchichón by Casa Riera Ordeix is a product with Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status since 2002.
As well as Vic Salchichón, we also prepare Truffled Salchichón, Rustic Salchichón and Vic Fuet. Four singular products renowned for their aroma, texture and flavour in every corner of the world.
