Fratelli Galloni prosciutto
Fratelli Galloni S.p.A. is a specialized Italian company that has been producing high quality Parma prosciutto since 1938.
Among the 200 ham producers belonging to the “Consortium of Parma Prosciutto”, Fratelli Galloni S.p.A. has always distinguished itself by using the traditional processing methods as a means to safeguard the high quality of real Italian prosciutto: the salting is still carried out by hand, the smearing is repeated twice, or even three times if necessary, and the ageing takes place in cellars where ventilation is almost completely natural.
The raw materials come exclusively from selected farms, growing “mature” heavy pigs of national breeds , fed naturally and subject to the most rigorous health controls. This ensures the product they obtain is a large-sized prosciutto, suitable for a long ageing (at least 24 months instead of the 12 months minimum required for Parma prosciutto) and having the lowest possible salt content. Along with that they also feature the sweetness, fragrance and taste identifying the very best Parma prosciutto.
Thanks to its rigorous work and tight controls, Fratelli Galloni has been given the permit to export to countries like the United States and Japan, known for the strictness of their health regulations. They are the first exporters of Parma prosciutto to these countries.
Galloni’s customers are high quality delis and renown restaurants in Italy and abroad, such as “La Corte Di Montenapoleone” – Milan; “Harry’s Bar” – Venice; “Villa D’Este” – Cernobbio; “Harrod’s” Department Store – London; “Balducci’s”, “Citarella’s”, “Grace’s Marketplace”, “Dean & Deluca” and “Cipriani” – New York, and many of Australia’s very best restaurants.
