APERITIVOS CASTILLO, S.L. is a family firm founded in 1994 by Mr. Vicente Castillo Sánchez and his sons, Alberto and Vicente Castillo de las Heras. At the time the original company was called CORTEZAS CASTILLO, S.L., due to the fact that its main product was fried pork rinds. In the new phase of its existence, and with the experience gained since 1975, the company began to produce pork rinds and to market them throughout Spain, transforming a meat product such as pork loin rind into a snack desirable and tasty.
With over forty years of experience, the company now has modern installations covering a surface area of more than 8,000 m2, and is managed by Mr. Alberto Castillo de las Heras as Director of Production and Development, and Mr. Vicente Castillo de las Heras as Director of Marketing. After making a commitment to innovation, the company now markets 7 products of meat origin, 6 of them snacks: pork rinds, dehydrated pork rinds, ham pork rinds, pork cracklings. Hence the company’s decision to change its name to the more accurate APERITIVOS CASTILLO, S.L.
The products are currently distributed to wholesale clients in the Snack Foods sector all over Spain. Dehydrated pork rinds are also distributed in South America, and in over 10 European countries.
