Classic Meats

“Nello Stile Antico”  — “In the ancient style.” That’s what our founder, Umberto, used to say.

Battistoni’s Classic Meats are made using the select quality ingredients and the same Mediterranean recipes that our original sausage maker, Guieseppe Surbine, penned.  Our carefully chosen lean pork and beef selections are all certified Gluten-Free and contain no artificial ingredients.

At Battistoni, we believe that in order to call a product “Italian” there ought to be some direct ties to Italy! Our “Classic Italian” line features recipes that Urberto Battistoni borrowed from his homeland … from wine-cured salami to whole dry spices in Genoa.

Our classic meats offer the most complete and distinguished flavors of hard salami, Genoa salami, pepperoni and capocollo to satisfy even the most sophisticated of palates.


Artisan Meats

“Where the spirit does not work with the hand, there is no art” – Leonardo da Vinci

Handcrafted with the Italian style of an artisan craftsman, Battistoni’s Artisan Meats are made using traditional methods and recipes, and with only high-quality ingredients.

Our Old World Recipes were cultivated in the Italian tradition and have remained authentic for generations. Battistoni’s Artisan Meats have been handcrafted, cured and prepared to highlight the bold and unique flavor that has been our tradition since 1931.
