Ferrarini has always been dedicated to the symbols of Made in Italy: Cooked ham, Parma ham, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, the distinguished traditional Balsamic Vinegard and wines traditionally found in Emilia Romagna, such as Lambrusco. Tasting Ferrarini’s products allows you to share with us the Italian passion for food and quality.
Ours is a family story, quintessentially Italian. It all began in an old villa at the foot of the hills south of Reggio Emilia, where the group now has its headquarters.
1956 Lauro Ferrarini begins industrial-scale production of cooked ham in a villa in Rivaltella (Reggio Emilia).
1979 Parma ham production gets underway in the EFFE factory in Lesignano de’ Bagni (Parma).
1989 With the construction of the EFFE2 factory (Lesignano de’ Bagni, Parma), production of cured ham increases.
1998 The group’s distribution platform is launched.
2000 The Ferrarini group acquires Vismara from Nestlé. The company had been founded in 1898 in Casatenovo (Lecco), in the heart of Brianza, by Francesco Vismara.
2003 The Lesignano de’ Bagni (Parma) production plant expands further with the construction of the EFFE3 factory, for sliced products.
2012 The new Vismara production plant comes into operation. The cutting-edge facility is situated just a few miles from the company’s historic headquarters in Casatenovo (Lecco).
