Metro Deli All Natural Prosciutto Raised without Antibiotics | Spring Scoop 2018


At US Foods we’ve created the Serve Good Program, which is a product line for responsibly sourced products and
products that contribute to waste reduction. And in particular raised without
antibiotics is a key part of that program. Consumers are definitely looking for products that have been raised without antibiotics. They want more
transparency, they want to know about the animal care at the farm level, they want
to know and understand the province of their food. I’m really excited to
introduce you our Metro Deli All-Natural Prosciutto produced with pork that has
been raised without the use of antibiotics. Our operators are going to
love this product. It’s putting a new spin, having no antibiotics on something
that people are very familiar with. The idea of prosciutto on your charcuterie
boards, on your salads, on your pizzas, or really nice deli sandwich, goes a long
way with consumers. Great care goes into the production of the prosciutto. The way
that it’s produced is really true to old-world styles. We’ve taken a real
artisanal approach to how we process our prosciutto, it can’t be rushed. When it comes to our aging process, we’re taking great care and ensuring that our rooms are
maintained at the proper temperatures and humidities in order to actually
develop that flavor in our finished product. There’s really an art that goes
into this process and when you see the prosciutto hanging in this state, that
this didn’t happen by accident, this is over months of aging and years of
knowledge. Each prosciutto is treated differently. We’re still moving the racks
by hand, we’re still salting with old-world techniques.
It takes a real true passion to ensure that we’re making the highest quality
prosciutto possible. From the farm to the consumers hands there’s thoughtfulness,
there’s care, there’s sustainability that’s all tied in and woven throughout the
whole process.
