VELO D'ASTICO, THE ORIGINS OF QUALITY
The origins of Salumificio Verza date back to the early 1900s, when legendary grandfather Antonio, known as “Verza”, used to butcher cattle and pigs bred in the valley.
This ancestor would preserve the meat in a cave filled with the snow and ice that he himself would collect on his cart from up on the Fiorentini highlands. Then using this same means of transport, he would travel around the nearby villages selling his products to his customers.
Verza Salumi today
FAITHFUL TO TRADITION
Today Verza Salumi is a business reality, resulting from a well-known brand, and in all these years it has known how to maintain the same passion, tradition and quality of its cured meat products thanks to a careful selection of the meat, the use of natural casings, herbs, natural spices and, above all, a slow maturing technique.
Maintaining traditional production methods and handing down this tradition has been and continues to be a great challenge: despite the strong competition that calls for market strategies with a downward pressure on prices, we, in contrast, have always chosen a different path, focusing on quality and the guarantees that we can offer to consumers.
- Andrea Toniolo -
The secret behind the goodness of our cured meat products is the way we follow the traditional working methods of our land based on a careful selection of the meat. The craftsmanship of the preparation, the casing process and, in particular, the slow maturing method, enable the salamis to develop fragrances and flavours that they would not otherwise have.
A BRIDGE BETWEEN THE PAST AND MODERN TIMES
All the salami products are “traditional” as they are prepared according to the methods that have long been disseminated in the valleys of Alto Astico and Posina near Vicenza. To achieve this result, the past blends together perfectly with the present thanks to the use of technologically advanced plants that guarantee the consumer wholesome, top quality products.
Only italian meats
A CAREFUL SELECTION
Quality is the objective that we pursue and for this purpose, we select the best pigs only from Italian farms. The salami products offered to the consumer are able to reproduce and convey the unmistakable and unique flavour of cured meats of the past which was the result of an ancient craft that today has almost disappeared.
