Specialties Inc. introduces French Bayonne ham
Specialities Inc. introduced France’s legendary all natural Bayonne Ham at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City. Specialities Inc. was awarded the prized cured ham from France last July by the Delpeyrat Bayonne Ham Company based upon their expertise and experience to source, distribute and create sell-through of “Best of Class” specialty brands in the United States. After a two-year approval process, the USDA put its stamp of approval to begin importing the Bayonne Ham with the first shipments arriving in August of this year. Bayonne hams have only four ingredients; specially-bred and fed French pigs (corn and cereals), salt from the natural springs deep beneath the Pyrenees Mountains, air and the most important ingredient, time. On average it takes 9 to 12 months to make a Bayonne Ham.
