No to Processed Ham

Cooked ham can be made using fresh whole legs or pieces of legs that are “assembled” together. Obviously, the latter type is of inferior quality. All our cooked hams are made with whole legs. It is possible to get information on the type of raw material used by reading the label. In fact, the Executive Order of 25 February 2000, which acknowledges EU Directive 1999/10/CE, obligates producers to indicate the term “PORK LEG” on the package when a whole leg has been used. On the other hand, when pieces of legs are used, the term “PORK” or “PORK MEAT” must be indicated.
