DI LUSSO® expands product distribution
Hormel® Deli Foods is expanding its deli offerings nationwide to include DI LUSSO® Genoa salami and DI LUSSO® Sopressata salami. Until now, these two varieties were available only in New York City, where this deli brand of salami ranks No. 1.
Both varieties feature distinctive natural casings, Unlike regular salami, DI LUSSO® Genoa salami undergoes a more delicate drying process without smoking. This keeps the blend of Italian seasonings from getting too bold, and it adds a hint of garlic. The sausage is then hand-tied for added authenticity.
DI LUSSO® Sopressata is based on rural Italian recipes featuring coarsely chopped pork seasoned with whole peppercorns and spices.
