Salumi Australia has partnered with Italy’s most prestigious prosciutto brand to introduce their traditional flavours to the Australian market.
Introducing Principe Food
Principe Food, an Italian generational business started in 1945, specialises in the production of San Daniele prosciutto, a dry cured ham that’s handcrafted and aged in the San Daniele del Friuli region of north east Italy. Salumi Australia has partnered with Principe Food to introduce a small range of their prestige San Daniele prosciutto line to our customers from mid-February.
We chose to partner with Principe Food as our preferred prosciutto supplier as their company philosophy and principles align with our own. They are all about quality pork, traditional techniques and consciously cured products. Their pigs are raised ethically, fed an exceptional diet and their breeding farms of origin are world class.
San Daniele prosciutto
There are two famous varieties of Italian prosciutto – Prosciutto di Parma from Parma and Prosciutto di San Daniele from the San Daniele del Friuli area in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of Italy. The microclimate of Friuli-Venezia Giulia is quite unique. The cold air coming from the foothills of the Alps meets the hot streams of the Adriatic Sea, creating climate conditions that are extremely favourable for the prosciutto ageing process. Most of Principe’s prosciutto is aged for 13 to 16 months.
