    Volpi Foods Future


We’ve been hand-crafting Italian cured meats in America’s
midwest since 1902, and for generations before, in Milan.

Learn Our Story

Our home remains on The Hill in St. Louis. There, as long-standing members of the community, we've been serving generations of meat lovers from the same storefront for more than 110 years. We prepare our meats in the same facility John Volpi opened in 1902, although we've added two more since then.

Experience Our Process

We’re passionate about producing delicious, natural, exceptionally high-quality foods. We handcraft everything we make using original, authentic recipes. We import our spices from their native habitats throughout the world. And we let time cure our meats naturally, whether it takes four weeks, four months, or four years.
