Why we love it
Mortadella (mortaˈdɛlla) is a traditional Italian ham and one of the main uses is the classic panino con mortadella, mortadella sandwich, found all over Italy. This is not only an artisan mortadella, gluten and lactose free, but has a twist, it contains olives and n'djua. This is a very tasty mortadella, full of flavours, where the spiciness of the n'djua perfectly balances the freshness of the olives, a joy for the palate.
The artisan who made it
It all started in 1965 when Vittorio Callà, a breeder opened a butcher shop in Mileto, a small village not far from Vibo Valentia. Mileto is known for its numerous butchers and the quality of the meat (hence its name "City of meat"), with visitors coming every day to buy fresh meat and seasoned.
Thanks to the passion and knowledge of Vittorio and the help of his family, the small butcher in a few years, had become a synonym for high quality meat.
In 1978 the second generation took over and decided to go one step further, they decided to build a slaughterhouse so they could control the whole process and ensure animals were treated properly.
Now, the next generation has taken over from Vittorio’s sons, and the small butcher shop is slightly bigger, but it is as artisan as it was when Vittorio first opened producing some of the best cured meat, including the famous Ndjua. All their meat and cured meat only uses natural ingredients without preservatives, they are 100% natural.
