The Company

Founded in 1959 from a small slaughterhouse of farming tradition, the Martelli Group is made up of eight producing units pertaining to two different companies (Martelli Fratelli S.p.A. and Martelli Salumi S.p.A.). Combined together, these develop a complete productive cycle: from pig-farming to slaughtering, from the processing and distribution of the fresh meats, to the production of cooked and cured hams. The hallmarks that define the Martelli Group and which place it at the cutting edge of technology in the pork processing sector is total food chain control from breeding to slaughter, delicatessen counter or self service counters.

The slaughterhouse

The ancient slaughterhouse has been replaced by a very modern plant that is capable of handling over 750,000 pigs a year. The establishment in Dosolo (MN) is approved by United States and Japanese authorities and handles only hogs raised in compliance with rules of the Consortium del Prosciutto di Parma and San Daniele. These animals are therefore guaranteed for their origin, genetics, age and healthy feeding. Our slaughterhouse supplies the most important Italian producers of charcuterie products and major distribution chains. Part of the daily production is also destined to the needs of the Martelli Group's plants. The ready-to-cook meats are produced in the

plant next to the slaughterhouse. Great care and attention is given to the packaging of the meat prepared in sterile rooms with the most modem machinery. The packs of fresh meat are intended for family consumption (mainly through chain stores) as well as for institutional work and the restaurant trade. Thanks to the "from the farm to table" formula, the most suitable meats are selected to be processed and packaged; from portioned cuts (chops, spare ribs, escalopes, stewing and roast joints), to the oven/grill ready preparations (kebabs, mixed grills, hamburgers), to breaded slices, to fresh sausages and other specialities (processed meats with organic vegetables and other strictly checked ingredients).

The cooked Ham

Azienda Martelli

The production of cooked hams takes place in two factories: one in Vo' Euganeo (PD), an establishment that has existed since the 80's and has a capacity of 8,000 pieces a week; the other in Boara Pisani (PD) newly built in 2003. The Boara Pisani plant, authorised to export to the United States of America and to Japan, covers 6,000 square meters and has a production capacity of 20,000 hams per week. Thanks to modern technology, the expertise of the employees and rigorous quality control, Martelli is

able to offer cooked ham at excellent value for money. Martelli's cooked hams have an unmistakable soft and delicate taste. They are also ideal for people who follow a controlled diet or suffer from allergies and are gluten free. In addition to the cooked hams, Martelli slices and gas flushes all charcuterie products. With them, the Martelli Group has made itself the full interpreter of the consumers' ever increasing need for a healthy and natural product.

Martelli's production of D.O.P. Parma Ham takes places in three USA approved plants: one in Sala Baganza (Martelli brand) and two in Langhirano (4Stagioni and DOC&G brands) on the hills surrounding Parma. Only pork thighs obtained from hogs raised according to the strict "Consorzio di Parma" rules are used here. Although the three plants are equipped with the latest technology and automation, the final checks are left to and are carried out by experienced senior staff. Each plant uses the selected raw materials from our

slaughterhouse but has its own production philosophy and different products in size and maturation. The Martelli Group can thus offer a qualified and wide-ranging assortment, to respond to the specific request of any domestic and foreign customer. With a single supplier like Martelli, the customer can have a very comprehensive proposal in Parma ham ranging from competitive value for money to top of the range of 24 months, all with the guarantee of a backward chain subsidiary.
