Supply chain sustainability
The High Protection project
We believe that supply chain cooperation aimed at excellence will be one of the main cornerstones of sustainable development and success in the future. We have therefore decided to enter into a new partnership with the best farmers in our Italian supply chain for the creation of 3 lines with a highly sustainable profile:
Breeding without antibiotics from the 49th day;
Organic dry cured ham;
A step towards the future taken together and fundamental for the continuous sustainable development of the sector in the years to come.
Attention and Conservation of Traditions and Territory
Sustainability also means actively acting to conserve, protect and promote the culture and historical, artisanal and food heritage of our territory, safeguarding its excellence, naturalness and authenticity over time.
