Citterio was founded in 1870 by Giuseppe Citterio, a delicatessen worker who trained in Milan. When he opened his own deli in Rho, Italy, he sold a salame di Milano prepared using an original recipe. This cured salami and other Citterio meats were received incredibly well. And by 1974, the brand's first US factory opened in Pennsylvania. Today, Citterio remains a family business. With over a century of experience, the brand knows what it means to make and sell high-quality meat. Traditional recipes are paired with the latest technologies and continuous research to produce exceptional products.
A Selection of Cured Meats
Supermarket Italy sells an assortment of Citterio's cured meats. Their sweet soppressata is dry-cured pork with an aromatic seasoning blend. Their hot soppressata adds boldness with red pepper. Mini mortadella made with oven-roasted spices has a rich flavor and texture. And the brand's prosciutto cotto is prepared with an herbal blend of garlic, sage, and rosemary. Citterio also makes a convenient pre-sliced prosciutto. With free shipping on order over $75, Supermarket Italy is a great place to stock up on gourmet Italian meats.

Likewise, prosciutto in salad adds richness and just the right amount of salt. You can even fry soppressata and serve with eggs and potatoes for a warm breakfast plate.
Arrange Delectable Charcuterie

Savor prosciutto with thinly sliced melon and a touch of sea salt. Enjoy soppressata with fresh fruit, crackers, and creamed cheese. Or use Citterio's charcuterie meats to top a crostini appetizer. Serve these cured meats with a bold glass of wine and experience every bite.
