The range of our PDO cold cuts is made up of the following products:
Coppa Piacentina PDO "La Regina"
Pancetta Piacentina PDO"La Castellana"
The salami Piancentino PDO "Il Principe".
All three are famous salami of Piacenza with origins linked to the family tradition handed down in the farms of the plain.
Our Piacenza cold cuts are made with pork meat born and bred on farms in Emilia Romagna and Lombardy, using the methods provided for the heavy Padano pork.
The PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) was born in 1992 thanks to the European Regulation (EC) 2081/92, then updated to 2012 with EU Reg. 1151/2012. These regulations have been established in order to protect the products of the tradition of the different European countries and to guarantee the consumer the consumption of quality foods linked to an identifiable geographical origin. The Denomination is a name that identifies a product originating from a specific territory, whose quality or characteristics are essentially due to a particular geographical environment and its peculiar natural and human factors and whose production phases take place in the defined geographical area . For PDOs, the whole process of obtaining a product, from the birth of the pig to the processing of the final salami, refers to the area of denomination.
