Niman Ranch, Northglenn, Colo., unveiled a line of artisan charcuterie, including 23 items of Genoa Salame, Capocollo, Hot Sopresatta, Pepperoni and Pancetta.
“In response to the urging of chefs and specialty grocers who wanted a real choice in superior tasting charcuterie made humanely and sustainably by U.S. family farmers, we created a new product category from our delicious tasting pork,” says Jeff Tripician, general manager and chief marketing officer. “We are pleased to expand what we offer with a Niman Ranch charcuterie that shares the values of our customers.”
This line of charcuterie comes from a network of skilled family farmers raising pigs in a sustainable and humane environment without antibiotics. The product is artisan crafted using high-quality, heritage-breed pork and old-world techniques.
“We knew in developing this line that it would be a superior product,” says Drew Calvert, senior director of new products. “When you age or cure meat, you remove the water and intensify the flavor. Our fresh pork is known as some of the best tasting in the marketplace. By starting with the finest tasting meat, the production techniques enhance the flavor and you can taste the difference.”
Niman Ranch pork is third-party certified under the Certified Humane program and from hogs raised by a community of small, independent U.S. family hog farmers who adhere to some of the strictest animal welfare protocols.
Niman Ranch products are available nationwide through its distributor network.
