When we speak about Italy, we immediately relate to its delicious, diversified, healthy food. Most superior Italian products are exported all over the world which allows for making its culinary culture wider and wider. Nowadays many products are easily found in supermarkets, deli-shops and stores overseas.
As to cold cuts, Italy primarily exports its finest Parma ham whose top-of-the-line manufacturers are Beretta (dry-cured ham and cooked ham) Fiorucci (dry-cured ham, sausage and Bologna sausage), Rovagnati (cooked ham) and Rigamonti (cured beef).
As to cheeses, Italian exports include the semi-aged hard Grana Padano (produced in Lombardy, Piedmont, Trentino and Emilia-Romagna) and its magnificent cognate Parmigiano Reggiano (Lombardy and Emilia Romagna).
The most prominent biscuits manufacturers are Mulino Bianco (biscuits, cakes and snacks), Kinder (chocolate bars and snacks), Ferrero (Nutella cream and chocolate bars ), Bauli (croissants, pandoro and panettone). As to seasoning manufacturers the best ones are Star (tomato paste and stock-cube), Cirio (tomato paste), Saclà and Ponti (pickles and vinegar). The very best pasta makers are Barilla, De Cecco and Buitoni. Last but not least, how about rounding off a meal with a piping hot cup of Italian Lavazza or Nanini coffee?
