Salumificio Toscano Showcases Award-Winning Porchetta


New York City, NY
Thursday, September 7th, 2017

Salumificio Toscano Piacenti is celebrating the successful reception of its delicious meats, including the Italian classic Porchetta.

Hand-crafted, roasted pork, I can say first hand that this award-winning product melts on the tongue.

On behalf of the company, Franco Toaccafondi took the time to share the mouth-watering details when we met in New York City earlier this summer.

Franco Toaccafondi, Former Export Manager, Salumificio Toscano Piacenti“We won the FAMI Award several months ago,” Franco said, explaining that the company doesn’t focus on bags or stamps to tout the product. “Just the meat–it’s beautiful to produce and sell these products in the U.S. We are the only company to export these kind of products from Tuscany.”

All natural with no additives or preservatives, you might wonder where that delicious flavor comes from.

The Salumificio Toscano team only uses fresh garlic, juniper berries, pepper, and salt.

“Prochetta is really tasty, very flavorful,” Franco continued. “So bon appetit.”
