In the Incarlopsa slicing plant, the hams are stored in a cool store at 0ºC until the moment comes to proceed to the pressing phase to produce our delicious trays of sliced ham.
Once the ham pieces have been pressed – having passed all due quality controls to ensure that every piece is in perfect condition – we cut them into slices, thereby attaining regular, uniform slices from start to finish.
The slicing is done automatically, so any human contact that might break the hygiene chain is avoided. Later, packaging and labelling is likewise undertaken automatically. Once sealed, the packaged goods return to the cool store at 0ºC until their final delivery to Mercadona supermarkets. We thereby ensure the product reaches our consumers in perfect condition.
