There was a small shop in the centre of Modena where top-quality meats were carefully processed by grandpa Emilio to turn them into quality cold cuts; it was 1919, and that passion for good things has remained unchanged for three generations in the Palmieri family. The art of making cold cuts was passed down to Carlo who, when he was very young, decided to take over the family’s business; in 1961, his dream came true: to open a business of his own near Modena and start producing mortadella, salami, scratchings, bacon and brawn, using the meat of the pigs raised and butchered by him. Today, Salumificio Palmieri is recognized on Italian and foreign markets as setting the standards in the production of quality mortadella and also precooked products such as: zampone, cotechino and pork shank.

CASEIFICIO SOCIALE MALANDRONE 1477 COOP. AGR.
Since 1930, Caseificio Sociale Malandrone collects members’ milk to produce a fine Parmigiano Reggiano. To date, after almost a hundred years in business, the total members are only four and the milk used for Parmigiano Reggiano is obtained exclusively from the 300 cows they own; farmed 1 km from the dairy, and naturally fed with hay grown directly by its subsidiaries. In the first year the Parmigiano is seasoned in a mountain storage; that’s why the one produced by the Dairy Malandrone is called “mountain product” recognized by Consorzio Parmigiano Reggiano.
