Good, healthy and genuine: food ethics
Quality is nutrition
The taste of experience

More than just San Daniele
Great-tasting, healthy and genuine: these are our products, the result of our devotion and experience. We still make them with the same passion and attention to details of the olden days.
Our full range of typical Italian cured meat products boasts genuine, certified specialities, with no added polyphosphates, and no GMOs, lactose or gluten.
Prosciutto crudo has always been made in San Daniele, since a long time ago. The climate made it possible and our ancestors wisely realised that.
The magic of the location
Throughout history Friulian livestock farmers could choose to rear their pigs anywhere, but they could only preserve their legs of ham using salt as they had learnt from the Celts, in San Daniele del Friuli. Nowadays PDO guidelines preserve the centuries-old characteristics of the process and protect them through the Consorzio del Prosciutto di San Daniele.
Air and water
Alpine air descends over the farthest reach of the Friulian plain and mingles with the sea air right over the course of the King of the Alpine Rivers, the Tagliamento, which mitigates diurnal temperature variation and regulates humidity creating the famous microclimate of San Daniele, a particular feature of our territory, unique and impossible to emulate.
Good things come to those who wait
One step at a time, with the patience and virtue of a hard-working people who gave us the gift of the invaluable understanding of simplicity, we now faithfully replicate the process of traditional curing. As it has been for centuries, salt and time are all it takes to bring San Daniele to the table.
We are what we eat
From Prosciutto di San Daniele to Speck, to cooked ham and hand-tied roasted hams, our mission is to ensure that our food production heritage keeps evolving to clearly demonstrate the quality of our products, services, and customer and market relations.
