Many Venezuelan children enjoy a breakfast of Diablitos Underwood deviled ham with arepas, a bread made of precooked corn flour. This high-quality, traditional product maintains a leading share of the country's meat spreads market.
In 1896, the William Underwood Company in Boston, Massachusetts, began exporting this tasty, spreadable ham to Venezuela. The Venezuelan company, Diablitos Venezolanos, C.A., was established in 1960.
Since 1961, the product has been produced locally at the Cagua plant in the state of Maracay. General Mills Venezuela today sells Diablitos Underwood Deviled Ham exclusively in Venezuela. The company also produces pasta sauces under the Underwood brand.
