Liguria Foods, Humboldt, Iowa, created Liguria 51 brand pepperoni, an extension of the flagship Liguria 1974, but one that undergoes a natural smokehouse cycle to impart a smoky flavor similar to Liguria Bravo Gusto.

Liguria 51 is made from the freshest ingredients, which are sourced from long-time suppliers, and the name (51) comes from the introduction of five flavors in one pepperoni.

“In a limited release, Liguria 51 performed extremely well,” says Joe Henry, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “The idea for Liguria 51 came to us after I cooked our Liguria 1974 on a pizza at home on my outdoor grill for my daughter and her friends. They absolutely loved the flavor and requested more.”

Liguria 51 is available for foodservice only.
