Veroni’s sponsorship activities in 2022
2022 has been a year of great visibility for Veroni thanks to a well-structured sponsorships strategy choosing the most popular sport and culinary events in the States. From New York’s most renowned culinary Festival to the most important tennis tournaments like Miami Open, Washington City Open, and Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati, Veroni is elevating its brand of high-quality imported from Italy charcuterie amongst the US sport and food fans.
Since 2016, the historical Italian cured-meat maker has been the first Italian company to import made-in-Italy salami to the US, sliced in the company’s New Jersey plant. As a historical, family-owned company, Veroni aims to bring the experience of fully enjoying authentic Italian charcuterie to the life of American consumers. The tasting experience is the only way to fully understand the high quality of Veroni charcuterie. Therefore, the Italian brand wraps up the year with a bang thanks to the Houston Open, the first golf tournament sponsored by Veroni.
