About Lanzarini

Lanzarini's passion for high quality products is the leading factor that had guided “Salumificio Lanzarini Giovanni Srl” since 1961, a passion handed down from father to son from the days of its founder, Giovanni Lanzarini and which has continued into the third generation. Their development started in the early sixties with the setting up of a small factory producing cold meats and salami, and has developed over the years through continuous investments and an increase in its production capacity. Today, the company can count on a modern and functional structure, in a position to face and cope with the demands and changes of the market.

The only thing that has remained the same over the years is the guarantee of a genuine product of the highest quality, the values that have always characterised their brand. Quality that is certified thanks to the attainment of the ISO 9001:2008 Certification and BRC Global Standard – Food, IFS Food and No GMO.

Today the company chooses the best meats, which are then transformed, cured, seasoned and matured naturally following the criteria of a hundred-year-old tradition. The products, all of the highest quality, include mortadella, speck, ham, various types of salami, and other products for the food industry.


Bacon, an indulgent delight loved by many, is a flavorful and versatile ingredient that adds a smoky, savory punch to a wide range of dishes. Whether crisped up as a breakfast staple, woven into sandwiches, or used as a savory topping, bacon's irresistible aroma and taste make it a beloved favorite around the world.

Made from cured pork, bacon's rich and smoky profile comes from its preparation process, which often involves smoking and seasoning. Its combination of crispy texture and umami-packed flavor adds a layer of depth to dishes, turning them into comforting and satisfying creations.

When it comes to wine pairing, bacon's bold flavors call for wines that can complement its savory richness. For a classic pairing, opt for a full-bodied red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah, as their robustness harmonizes with bacon's smokiness and adds an extra layer of depth to the tasting experience.
