Veroni Brings the First Giant Mortadella 100% Made in Italy to the US

Correggio, Italy – Veroni, the Italian salumi producer famous for their giant mortadellas, is the first company to bring the largest 100% made in Italy mortadella to the United States. The mortadella is 300 kg (661 lb) in weight, 6.4 ft long and 18 inch in diameter: after having successfully passed the USDA’s meat inspection division controls, also thanks to the work of Veroni’s pool of QC specialists, the mortadella has reached Orlando to be exhibited and tasted at the International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA) show from June 2 to June 4.

Veroni, historical brand founded in Emilia-Romagna in 1925 and present in the USA since 2016, has specialized over the years in the production of giant mortadellas, which have been featured several times in the Guinness World Records book. It still holds the record for the world’s largest mortadella ever produced: 2,680 kg (5,909 lb) in weight and 29 inch in diameter with a circumference of 7.55 ft. 

“’The bigger it is, the better it is’ is not just a motto, but a fact”, explains Emanuela Bigi, marketing manager at Veroni Salumi. “Mortadellas with the largest diameter require a longer cooking process this helps to enhance their flavours”.

Even today, the secret and highly guarded recipe for Veroni’s giant mortadellas is one of tradition: high quality raw materials, processed with a “know-how” handed down from generation to generation within the Veroni family. Find out more about this tradition here:

“We are thrilled to have been able to bring one of our giant mortadellas to the United States and that our flagship product has successfully passed all the necessary USDA controls that confirm its quality and safety,” continues Bigi. “At the IDDBA Show in Orlando the mortadella is displayed in a dedicated area to be cut and tasted by visitors to the fair”.

Slicing a giant mortadella is a job for experts: for this reason, during the event in Orlando, a charcuterie specialist in cutting this mortadella has arrived directly from Italy.
