Why does it deserve our mention? For being a ham with all the characteristics associated with Prosciutto di Parma: a suggestive aroma, a texture that melts in the mouth and finally its unmistakably delicious taste. The Galloni company is a family run business that has fifty eight employees and was founded in 1960. The production of the ​​Parma Ham is shared with the manufacturing of the delicious Parmigiano-Regianno cheese, the reason for this is that the pigs are fed, in part, with the milk serum discarded in the manufacturing process of the  Parmigiano, a natural compound very rich in proteins and nutrients.The salting process is still done by hand, piece by piece, by specially trained personnel using the minimum amount of salt for each piece possible. This salt comes from a thermal area near to Lisignano and Salsomaggiore, which due to it its high sulphur content allows less salt to be used whilst still ensuring excellent preservation of the meet and enhancing it’s taste. The genetic selection of the pigs, their breeding and their diet are all aspects that the Galloni family pursue with care and passion and they have done since the company was originally founded. This ham "Selezione Oro"  is cured for a minimum period of twenty months, and is healthier than other hams for it uses less salt in its preservation process so you can enjoy it any time.
