We make our Coppa real slow! Giving it as much time in our chamber as possible, up to 5 months to mature. This gentle aging process allows it to develop slowly, avoiding overdrying and to generate a rich fruity flavour, and soft marbled texture.
We use retired breeding sows in our production, this gives us a far superior meat for charcuterie and is highlighted perfectly with the collars being not only twice the size as a standard collar but also having twice the marbling as a standard pig. Sows can be 4-5 years old and usually get exported to the continent so we are very proud to be providing a use in the UK.
This cured marbled collar is a great showcase for flavoursome, well-raised British pork.
