The Vacuum Bag for Whole Hams
Serrano ham dates back to the time of the Celts where the pig was a basic food product, it became an object of worship and placed among its main and most valued merchandise. Later in Roman times, the ham is considered as the most valuable, juicy and tasty part of the pig that was reserved for the wealthy classes. Specialized cooks called "vicarius supra dinners" came to exist for the production of hams and other sausages, the importance of the cured ham trade was such that at the time of Augustus and Agrippa Roman coins were created in the shape of a ham tip. In the Middle and Modern Ages, pork continued to be consumed in abundance, giving great importance to cured ham.
In the 19th century and the middle of the 20th century, thanks to the development of the technique for the production of meat products and the impulse of industrialization, Serrano ham reached its splendor.
