The Consorzio Zampone e Cotechino Modena IGP jealously guards the more than 500-year history of this all-Italian excellence. It works every day to ensure respect for the ancient recipe and, through scrupulous checks and the use of top-quality ingredients, all the taste, quality and warmth of tradition are brought to the table.
The Consortium unites and coordinates the most important companies of the best Italian charcuterie industry which produce these PGIs, promotes Zamponi and Cotechini Modena PGIs worldwide, guaranteeing consumers through careful market supervision - in Italy and abroad - and defends genuine Zamponi and Cotechini Modena PGIs against possible fraud.
Each Consortium company is controlled by an independent body which ensures that the production process is carried out in accordance with the Regulations.
This control body inspects the production process and verifies the product through a control plan approved by the Ministry of Agricultural, Food and Forestry Policies which supervises the entire supply chain.
The quality of Zampone Modena PGI and Cotechino Modena PGI is protected throughout Europe by the ‘Protected Geographical Indication’ registration, the famous PGI mark.
This prestigious community recognition certifies the products and guarantees consumers: respect for the ancient traditional recipe (the same since 1511) and the link with the region of origin; the use of high-quality meat; the constant control of production, which must take place in the traditional production area indicated in the Regulations; the presence of precise organoleptic and nutritional characteristics.
