The innovation in our DNA
A prototype developed internally that enables us to determine instantly the amount of subcutaneous fat that leg and shoulder hams contain, segregating the pieces that do not comply with the customer-defined standard so they do not enter the market.
A prototype developed internally that enables us to determine instantly the amount of salt that leg and shoulder hams contain, segregating the pieces that do not comply with the customer-defined limit so they do not enter the market.
New technology, to date used in human medicine, which we are assessing to try and detect internal defects in the piece.
An R&D&i department
Incarlopsa’s research starts with our animals, studying their genetics, nutrition and welfare. We likewise analyse the production factors that enable us to maintain products which are a cut above the rest, in both their sensory and nutritional qualities. We also explore variants like reduced salt content and other components beneficial for your health.
