When it comes to charcuterie products, the undisputed king is certainly raw ham. The following part of this presentation is extracted from the documentation available at the Consorzio del Prosciutto Toscano DOP, of which our company has been a member since the beginning of its foundation.
“In Tuscany, men, animals, plants have a shape, a language, a feeling, they have colors, joys to express. It is the passion for history and tradition that guides every action, in small and large things, and the process of creation in Tuscany always assumes the value of a "ceremony".
Even in breeding, a characteristic activity of this land, we find this passion for rituals, a demonstration of progress and technology that have not influenced the original historical value of what is produced.
The Tuscan pig breeding has distant origins, both peasant and agricultural, and the resulting product has currently maintained the characteristics of authenticity, taste and flavor that raise it to excellent results. The genuine simplicity that is required all over the world for Tuscan food production is also alive in its hams, which combine the strong flavors of the sun and winds in the maturation of the meat, the typical aromas of its protection, rich in mastic, myrtle , junipers, secret ingredients of the producers' recipes. The nature, the climate and the passion of the producers have been able to create and maintain the originally different flavor of the Tuscan ham. "
For the protection, the characteristic and unique identity of the breeding and processing techniques of Tuscan pigs, in 1990 the Tuscan Ham Consortium was included, which in 1996 obtained the right merit of the Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and consortium members stated that the start of production has been protected since September 1997.

The importance of being a PDO
The production of Prosciutto Toscano with Protected Designation of Origin is made possible by the commitment and respect for the Tuscan food tradition of all the members of the Consortium, who have decided to proudly adhere to the precise rules established by the Production Regulations.
Pigs are chosen only if born, reared, fattened and slaughtered in Tuscany and in the regions defined in the specifications, which are part of the D.O.P. Parma and San Daniele.
Animals must be at least 9 months old and have a live weight between 144 and 176 kg. To guarantee consumers the certainty of a product of superior quality and guaranteed, animals must have the indelible tattoo approved by the farmers and the slaughterers' mark.
The treatment, separated from fresh legs (frozen legs are not allowed), can only be carried out in the Tuscany Region. Salting is done dry with the empire of marine sales, pepper and natural aromas typical of the region. The resulting flavor is that characteristic of the already famous Tuscan ham, a delicate taste but wisely enriched by those unmistakable aromas of "Tuscany".
Controls on all production are managed by a control body authorized by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry.
Only by following this precise procedure, the hams obtained obtain, after at least one year of aging, the final mark of the Consortium in flames, representing the Tuscany Region.
