March 18, 2010 – Spain’s celebrated Iberico and Serano ham products, as well as chorizo sausages, can now be shipped to Canada courtesy of LaTienda.com.

Due to customs regulations, imported meat cannot currently be brought in to Canada through the U.S., frustrating many Canadian customers. To remedy this situation, LaTienda.com is working with a Canadian firm to ensure that the delectable cured jamón (ham in Spanish), as well as chorizo sausages, will now be shipped legally to Canadian addresses.

“Jamon is the emblematic food of Spain, but we couldn’t offer it to our Canadian customers.” says Tim Harris, co-owner of LaTienda.com.

Offering the largest selection of Spanish food in North America, LaTienda.com hopes to provide its customers with truly artisan foods from Spain and help small communities in Spain stay connected to their land and food-making traditions. The store appeals particularly to food lovers, Spanish expatriates and those who have enjoyed Spanish cuisine on their holidays.
