For over 50 years the specialties of the Marche tradition

In the early 60s, Nerino Mezzaluna, our father, decided to implement his entrepreneurial idea: transforming and marketing the meat of pigs from our own domestic breeding. It was a small family farm, this work was typically seasonal, in fact it was carried out only in the winter period as in those days it was not possible to have  cold rooms necessary for maintaining the worked meat.

At the beginning of the 70s the farm was transformed into an artisan company, the structure was enlarged and equipped with modern and efficient refrigeration systems and maturing cells. Moreover,  with the hiring of employees (initially three), the "family" (this is the term used by our father to indicate the working staff of the company) and production increased at the same rate.

Our mission for the future is to maintain and improve our cured meats, increasing the quality and hygiene standard, with particular attention to the  protection of animal welfare, continuing to create exclusively a niche product.

This is our challenge for the near future that we will face resolutely, with passion, determination and dedication to work that has always been transmitted to us.

The three fundamental phases for our quality

Strict and accurate selection of raw materials.

The animals that are slaughtered in our factory are domestically sourced from local farms in the Fermano and Maceratese areas.

The company has developed and created the project “Protection of animal welfare at the slaughterhouse, quality and meat hygiene”, in collaboration with the University of Camerino School of Biosciences e Veterinary Medicine.

Skilled workmanship

With the experience gained over the years where nothing is left out, applying strict health rules and self-control (HACCP), and a great passion for the art of delicatessen.

High-tech maturing plants

With computerized systems for managing the various stages of seasoning.

The location of the company in the Fermano area, nestled between the peaks of the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea where the pleasant climate and the clear, dry air of the Sibillini ... do the rest.
