We are a first-degree cooperative committed to the development of our members.

Our job is to ensure that our members' farms are profitable and sustainable in the medium and long term. In a sector as changing and complex as the Iberian sector, the role of our cooperative is to achieve a stable and growing rhythm of sales for our members .

To this end, we have developed a commercial policy far removed from market opportunism, focusing our efforts on achieving large supply contracts in terms of both volume and duration to link them directly to one or more farms with total transparency.

From there, we continue to work with both the customer and the partner to renew their relationship over time through a portfolio of cross-cutting services for both parties to facilitate the continuity and growth of the business relationship. The usual result is a constant renewal of contracts between industry and producer with satisfactory conditions for both parties.

Our Values

Transparency

All our operations are done with the full knowledge of the partners, sharing with them all the necessary documentation and leaving at their disposal the various contracts signed that affect their operation.

Clarity

No small print or convoluted phrases. All legal and commercial documentation is drafted in such a way that there is no room for doubt. And if there is, we do everything necessary to ensure that our partners feel the necessary security and confidence in the contract.

Commitment and reliability

Keeping our word is a maxim at Ibercom. We seek a firm and lasting commitment with both our partners and our customers. To this end, we place great emphasis on details, whether in the field or in our commercial work.

Guarantee of collection

We have specific financial instruments that guarantee our partners the collection of 100% of the operations carried out, being able to have the settlement of the operation almost immediately.

Fair prices

All our operations are referenced on the market prices, seeking to maximize the final price of the product according to its quality and the volume and temporality of the supply contract. The same happens with our services, both our commercial commission and the costs of other services are designed so that the partner retains all the possible value of the operations.

No barriers to entry or exit.

The only requirement to join Ibercom is approval by the assembly and the member's commitment to contribute the agreed quota. From that moment on, the entry fee has a symbolic character, so that withdrawing does not mean losing a large investment. We are confident that the quality and benefits of our work is what makes it worthwhile to be a member of Ibercom.

Man does not live by pork alone

We also take care of your cattle.

Frequently asked questions about the cooperative

Who can join the cooperative?

Our cooperative is designed for Iberian pig farmers in any of its different stages of breeding and fattening. Both intensive livestock farms as well as those destined for mountain animals.

What is the process of joining the cooperative?

First, a formal request must be made to the cooperative. Our technicians will evaluate the application and if it is favorable, a first year of joint work as a supplier will be established. After that year and depending on the results achieved, membership in the cooperative as a partner will be evaluated.

What is the cooperative's source of income?

The main source of income is the commission on sales. Initially this is 1% on the sale of live animals, which is charged both to the partner or supplier and to the purchasing customer.

On the other hand, the cooperative has other sources of income such as the sale of animal feed and the provision of services to members in terms of advice, genetic improvement and innovation.

How are profits distributed among the members?

Given the cooperative's business model, the member receives directly 98% of the price agreed upon in the sale, thus having instant access to the value generated by each animal. Regarding the annual operating results of the cooperative itself, Ibérico Comercialización SCL has a culture of total reinvestment of the profits generated by the commissions in the improvement of our services and marketing capacity.

In addition to marketing, what other services does the cooperative offer?

As mentioned above, in addition to marketing services, Ibercom offers advice on management, genetics, feeding... as well as access to advantageous feed purchases. On the other hand, we also have a branch destined to innovation in which the partners can support themselves to develop national improvement projects through R&D&I. Likewise, as a support service to our cattle breeding partners, our cooperative is part of bovies, a second degree cooperative for the commercialization of bovine cattle.

Throughout 2018 - 2020, our portfolio of partner services will be increased by the addition of industrial facilities for slaughtering, butchering, profiling, filleting, packaging and freezing of products.

In which other institutions or companies does the cooperative participate?

Ibérico Comercial Comercial is directly represented in the Extremadura fish market, as well as participating indirectly in ASICI and Aeceriber thanks to the different synergies with our associates.

Between now and 2020, the objective is to gain presence in sectoral institutions such as ANICE, AECOC or FIAB, so that we can represent our associates in the main national forums of the meat industry.

Where can I find detailed information on annual results?

Our financial results are available on our website in annual report format. You can download the information by clicking here.

Does the cooperative have quality management systems?

Currently, the cooperative has had the ISO 9001 quality management system since 2003. Throughout 2018 we have also accessed the international standards IFS and BRC both in broker mode and for 2019 the goal is to achieve these same certifications in the so-called "Full" mode.

All this effort is aimed at strengthening our export capacity, creating new marketing and value capture channels that will result in a better return for our associates.

What types of Iberian pigs can I access from Ibercom?

Our product portfolio is complete. From Duroc crossbred Iberian pigs to Iberian pigs of the different strains that currently exist.

In addition, we also slaughter and butcher the animals in order to supply the national industry and the international market with specific products for further processing.

How is animal traceability managed?

The traceability of our animals is achieved both through strict compliance with current legislation and quality standards, and through a very close working method in which we collaborate hand in hand with our partners and suppliers to have a clear and precise knowledge of everything that happens with the different lots.

Finally, it should be noted that we have a team of field technicians who supervise each of the animal loads/movements and periodically audit the different farms of our associates.

How is the animal stock managed and distributed?

The operations and production departments make annual estimates of animal output by month (both piglets and fattened animals) to subsequently monitor and accurately adjust the available stock on a weekly basis.

Thanks to our marketing policy, it is possible to make long-term delivery schedules that may suffer slight variations (a matter of days) for reasons beyond our control.

Can I buy directly from the members of the cooperative?

You can try, but thanks to the quality of our services, the members of the cooperative will refer you to us. Although we do not have legal mechanisms of exclusivity in marketing, the more than 15 years of working together have achieved a total level of adhesion and trust of the cooperative members.

What international approvals can I access at the cooperative for export?

The service slaughterhouses we currently work with have the capacity to export to the main international markets, Argentina, Brazil, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canada, Colombia, South Korea, Costa Rica, Morocco, Cuba, Japan, Hong Kong, Philippines, Ghana, Mauritius, New Zealand, Namibia, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mongolia, Montenegro, New Caledonia, Serbia, Peru, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, Mexico, Vietnam and Dominican Republic.

Throughout the 2018-2020 period, we are making the appropriate investments in our own facilities that comply with the regulations for the USA and China, in addition to all of those mentioned above.

How are service incidents managed in the cooperative?

Ibercom has a policy of direct access to those responsible for each of the sections of the organization chart, so that incidents are managed directly by the directors of production, operations, sales... We also have a specific protocol within the ISO 9001 standard for the management of specific incidents and the general evaluation of quality through an annual survey.

Do the cooperative's animals conform to the guidelines of the "Iberian standard"?

Yes, it is a major planning and management effort, but it is a critical product safety mechanism.

It is also possible to find animals "outside the norm", but this is an increasingly minority market and also generates very little added value, so our goal is to end this product line throughout 2018.
