HOW WE DO THINGS
Simplicity makes the best products. Our cooking method is driven by three fundamental principles that have been steadfast since the very beginning.
Our charcuteries are made from the highest quality meats under the watchful eyes of our artisans. The ingredients and spices we use are specially chosen for their authentic flavours and origins. This guarantee of quality is present in every package.
Passed down from generation to generation, the traditional method entails slowly drying our charcuteries in a clean and healthy environment. We let time do its thing, never rushing the process. Our products have been made with the same attention to detail for over 70 years.
Every day, our artisans prepare recipes in accordance with Italian culinary traditions. Furthermore, we constantly develop new packaging to optimally preserve the flavours of our charcuteries. At the national level, our cutting-edge control processes allow us to shine when it comes to food safety.
