Salumificio Lusetti is a family company, founded by the grandfather Umberto Lusetti, the owner of a butcher shop in the center of Suzzara that supplied the district of shops with traditional products such as pork scratchings, sausages, salami and sausages. Raffaele, the son, increased the activity, transforming it into a modern sausage factory and gradually expanding the range of products. This growth continues with the third generation: today the production plant of Lusetti family, recently manufactured, covers 2500 square meters halfway between Parma and Mantua, in an unspoiled corner.
Guanciale is Italian cured pork cheek or jowl. It's traditionally used in classic pastas, like spaghetti all carbonara and bucatini all'amatriciana. Because it's largely fat, guanciale has a more seductive pork flavor and delicate texture than cured meat that comes from the belly of the pork.
