Our history

Over 40 years of experience

Salumificio Menatti has found the right combination between craftsmanship and innovation that the founder, Lorenzo Menatti, and his collaborators proudly carry on in their quality of fine connoisseurs of the Valtellina tradition. Passion, perseverance and love for the art of the charcuterie, have pushed Lorenzo Menatti to learn the secrets of the Valtellina tradition when he was young and, in a few years, he turned the small craftsman’s shop, open in 1978, into an industrial plant specialized in the processing and production of charcuterie, using mainly pork and beef meat.

The production facilities enjoy the cool mountain climate of the low Valtellina, in a scenery of unsurpassable beauty, where the Valchiavenna meets the Lake of Como, a climate suited for the perfect aging of our products.

Besides conquering a significant portion of the Italian market with its genuine and well-balanced products, the Salumificio Menatti history tells of a success determined by our constant commitment to improve all aspects related to quality.

The Salumificio Menatti plants produce genuine and nutritionally balanced food, confirming its leadership in the art of the charcuterie destined to Italian and foreign tables. The original premises were open in 1992 with registered office in Piantedo (SO), turning the initial small plant founded by Lorenzo Menatti in 1978 into an industrial facility for the processing and sale of certified charcuterie. Extending over an area of approx. 28,000 m2, this plant has rooms destined to the various production stages and to the aging of the finished products.

The certified quality is obtained by upgrading and developing the processing systems of all stages, in compliance with some fundamental rules such as the use of quality raw material, the skillful dosage of the flavors, and the scrupulous compliance with health and hygiene standards. To bring to the tables of the Italians the excellence of certified cured meats, Menatti selects products with an intense flavor, a natural color and a correct size of the cut: these requisites are decisive in the sensorial evaluation that awards the production of the Valtellina charcuterie.
