The beauty of starting a family business is the understanding that your legacy will live on long past your lifespan. That is the case for John Volpi, who founded Volpi Foods over 120 years ago. Today, the fourth-generation company continues his legacy with award-winning, premium cured meats made by hand in small batches for a delicious experience.
"We're so passionate about the process and the nuances of making a truly delicious product, but we are also firm believers that delicious food doesn't need to be complicated," said Lorenza Pasetti, Chief Executive Officer and John Volpi's great-niece. "We're very proud to offer simple ways for families to snack, cook, entertain, and make memories together."
The Volpi family's artisan Italian tradition of carefully curing high-quality meat by hand stayed with John Vopli as he immigrated to St. Louis, Missouri. In 1902, he founded Volpi Foods to keep these rich family traditions alive. His original storefront in St. Louis is one of the oldest operating salumerias in the country, a press release stated.
Volpi Foods is regularly innovating and expanding its lineup and now offers dozens of products such as:
Volpi's passion for both quality and flavor is deeply ingrained in the company's culture and, as a result, its products are always all-natural, non-GMO, gluten-free, fresh, and made without nitrates, nitrites, or hormones.
The company's Raised Responsibly™ standard means ensuring agricultural biodiversity, comprehensive care from birth to humane harvest, a primarily vegetarian diet, freedom to roam and socialize naturally, and raised without steroids, growth promotants, or gestation crates. On top of this sustainability initiative, an innovative Eco-Pack™ has cut plastic in product packaging by 70 percent.
Cheers to 120 more years for the Volpi team!
