Salumificio La Rocca is located in the heart of the Appennino Piacentino in Castell’Arquato, a medieval town rich in history and traditions. Here the Founders have created a business enterprise in the slaughtering, processing and curing of pork.

The Salumificio has a first phase of expansion in 1978 that will take him to triple its production.
In the second half of the eighties the sons of members come in the Company and they create a new propulsive action, thanks to which they will make a second restructuring of the plant in 1995 with specialization in meat processing and production of salumi. This allows at the company to achieve its most prestigious goals.

In 1997 he received its CE mark and the subsequent license to export, a few months later the quality certificate ISO 9002 and shortly after the prestigious European DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) for Piacentine coppa, salame e pancetta.

In recent years Salumificio La Rocca has faced new stimulating challenges: the generational change; the expansion of seasoning cells with three new pavilions. In addition, the Company in 2009 replaced the old cover with a new one equipped with photovoltaic panels.

Today the weekly production capacity is about 130 tons of sausages and 3000-3500 whole pieces (coppe, fiocchi, culatelli, pancette). The target market is mainly northern Italy, in addition to the new foreign market, characterized by small top-quality importers (especially in Britain, France, Austria and Germany).
