CORREGGIO, Italy – Veroni, an Italian producer of cured ham and sliced meats, is expanding its distribution of Italian products in the United States.

Many of Veroni meats are imported from Italy.

 Veroni’s product line includes Mortadella, Dry-Cured Ham, Cooked Ham, Salami, Coppe And Pancetta, Speck and Bresaola. Veroni products are available thinly sliced in resealable plastic packages.

"When we opened our headquarters in Logan, New Jersey, in 2015, we had a very clear goal: to offer the American market not only a quality product made from a recipe, but a 100 percent authentic Italian product," said Antonio Corsano, CEO of Veroni Inc. USA. "Undertaking this effort was a risk for a family-owned company like ours, but so far our loyal consumers and distributors are proving us right: in just the first quarter of 2018 our sales increased by 25 percent over the same period of 2017.”

Veroni has 40 different products that are available in supermarket and grocery stores nationwide.

Veroni follows strict voluntary standards set by the BRC (British Retail Consortium) and the IFS (International Food Standard) for sanitary food production. The company has an EMAS environmental certification with the aim of continuously reducing its environmental impact, and a sophisticated Quality Management System (SGS-Accredia) to ensure that its products meet the high expectations of its customers, both in Italy and abroad. The facilities where meats are produced for export to the United States are USDA-certified.

"In our seven state-of-the-art plants, we subject the cured meats to the HPP (high-pressure processing) treatment to eliminate bacteria, then ship at a controlled temperature to the United States where the products are sliced and packaged in sterile rooms at our Logan headquarters facility,” said Veroni President Francisco Veroni. 

Veroni said this way the company can provide the widest variety of product and packaging alternatives while protecting the organoleptic properties of the finished meats all produced in strict compliance with the most stringent modern safety and health parameters.

Veroni Italian Meats was founded in 1925 by the five Veroni brothers, whose shop in the small town of Correggio was famous for the quality of its handmade Mortadella, salami and hams. The company now operates seven production facilities in the Emilia Romagna region of central Italy.
