Over 50 years of history
Founders Manuel José Núñez Aldegunde and María Asunción Torre Penelas began distributing their meat products over half a century ago all across Spain. Due to the positive reception of their products, they began an expansion process in the 1980s that started with the construction of our first factory on the outskirts of the city of Lugo.
Torre de Núñez continued to grow, establishing ourselves successfully on the domestic market and reaching more and more consumers. In 2000, we built a 15,000 sq. m plant equipped with the latest technology in meat production. Years later, the expansion continued with a new plant dedicated exclusively to making ham, with a capacity for 400,000 units a year. In 2016, we opened the new sliced products plant, which we expanded in 2019.
Torre de Núñez is constantly growing. In all these years, we have focused on improving our day-to-day operations, consolidating and expanding. And all of that to satisfy the public and secure their loyalty.
