Don Harris was thrilled last week when Smithfield Foods bought a 15 percent stake in Spain’s largest hog company, Campofrio Alimentacion. The Harris family business, Williamsburg based Tienda (Spanish for “store”), was the first Campofrio retailer in the United States. Harris, who spent about three years in Spain while he was a chaplain in the Navy, started Tienda in 1996. The company sells Spanish food and products online at www.tienda.com and has a small store at its warehouse in Williamsburg.
