Our story starts in a small grocery shop run by five brothers and located in Correggio, a small town in the heart of the Emilia-Romagna region (Italy). It is within the walls of their first shop that Fiorentino, Francesco, Paolo, Adolfo and Ugo Veroni decided to expand their family business of salami production, founding F.ll Veroni in 1925. Over the period of only a few years, the company was able to establish itself as a point of reference on the Italian market, constantly growing to the present day.
Today the fourth generation of the family is at the helm of a company that continues to invest in projects that are focused on continuous improvement, the pursuit of quality excellence and the constant balance between tradition and technological innovation.
From a small local grocery shop we’ve evolved into a modern reality using advanced technologies. Nevertheless, the art of traditional salami production is being transmitted from generation to generation, protecting and maintaining the value of traditions, artisanal techniques and old recipes.
