From the invention of the Salame di Milano to the Medaglie d’Oro to national and international expos, then on to technological innovations, cutting-edge analysis laboratories, the overseas factory and production facilities directly in the product’s place of origin, all the way up to Expo 2015: a history of success which spans five generations of family-run entrepreneurship has made the Citterio name synonymous around the world with professionalism, passion, innovation, and quality. The Citterio Academy was founded to present and teach the love of quality which has imbued our products with inimitable excellence for nearly a century and a half.Learn about Citterio’s history
The quest for quality begins with trusted farms, where Citterio’s staff makes its first important selection. Citterio is a silent investor in Prosus, the largest cooperative of Italian pig farmers, which allows us to select livestock raised in regions of northern Italy close to our production facilities. Once at our factories, all raw materials are inspected a second time: only that which passes all our quality tests is sent on to the processing area.
