Maestri d’Italia Launches New Products to U.S. Market; Stefano Tedesco Tells All

Well-spiced meats always will have room on the plate, and I can personally attest for shoppers who proclaim there can never be enough variety. Trends and interests have soared, and the deli shelf’s limits have virtually expanded as shopping habits continue to ebb and flow. Maestri d’Italia is not one to let consumers wait long for innovative flavors, as it recently unveiled two new products, Italian Guanciale and Italian Nduja, to the United States.

Stefano Tedesco, General Manager, Maestri d’Italia“We always strive to bring new, unique products to the market that utilize the best characteristics you would find in traditions from the old world,” Stefano Tedesco, General Manager, tells me. “Maestri brings new Italian and European traditional specialties to consumers in the USA, which reinforces our positioning as innovators in the category.”

And innovative the company is. The new products were imported first for foodservice, but after the success Maestri experienced amongst end consumers, these specialty flavors were made available for retail.

Italian Guanciale embodies the traditional flavor known throughout Italy. It is often the one ingredient Italians reach for in original carbonara and amatriciana pasta. Maestri brings the bold and authentic flavors out by curing the product for three months and using natural spices.

Allegedly making the first traditional Italian Nduja in the country, Maestri creates its Nduja directly from the Calabrian tradition. Spicy hot with Italian chili pepper, the spreadable meat is great on a pizza, crackers, toasted bread, or in a pasta.

“Maestri is synonymous with innovation, tradition, and customer service,” continues Stefano. “The uniqueness of the product comes from the fact that it is imported, therefore produced in the traditional way by Italians. We’re bringing the original product for the first time to the U.S., which is artisanally crafted in Italy for the authenticity our consumers look for.”

The unique retail format brings these two new items to table of the consumers, who can now enjoy creating recipes at home when they are not enjoying them in the best fine dining restaurants. For foodservice, Italian Guanciale is available in the traditional jowl shape, 2.5—3.5 lb, and the Italian Nduja can be purchased in a 16 oz log. Now for retail, consumers can purchase Guanciale in 8 oz chubs and Nduja in 6 oz logs.
