For personal passion of our general manager who has written so much on the subject and also demanding something that is key in the sector: achieve a stability in the finished product able to impress when the cured has not yet reached the perfect point and to get excited when it is expressed in all its magnitude, the reflection was profound and there are several brands that deserve all our respect and admiration, as much as the one that the Caus Barrera brothers provoke for various reasons.
Germans Caus Barrera is our first bet, cured and cooked sausages in the heart of the historic charcuterie processors regions of Catalonia, respect for the canons and tradition with a secallona that takes your breath away and an imperial Salchichón, but also courage to try new ways, like its excellent turkey cured sausage, its achieved allergen free versions or cooked pork feet that we could eat daily.
Apparently a modest project and recent presence in the market compared to companies that have completed the century in the art of stuffing, but clear ideas, brave and demanding people, according to our times, and products that generate followers instantly .
The facilities of Germans Caus Barrera in Puig-Reig, are designed to offer the best product in hygienic and sanitary conditions, thus complying with European standards of the highest quality.

TRADITION IN THE HEART OF THE CURED SAUSAGES OF CATALONIA
Years of tradition are a guarantee of success in the preparation of sausages and more in the heart of central Catalonia where climate conditions, terroir and history become a mythical product and desired by the most demanding palates around the world. In words of the Caus brothers, “We know all the secrets of the artisan delicatessen, we learned them from our parents and, they, from our grandparents”.
The pride of Caus Barrera begins by achieving excellence in traditional Catalan dishes, from the casual Fuet to the most noble cured sausage, the Llonganissa or Salchichón, to the spectacular expression of cooked sausages like “Bull Negre“, a black Pudding so deeply loved in our culture.
