Made From Carefully Selected Pork Thighs
All stages of maturation, marking and packaging of Kras branded prosciuttos are carried out on the Karst, in the Šepulje Kras meat processing plant.
Prosciutto is an air-matured meat, made from fresh, whole pork thighs. The salting technology preserves the tradition of the dry salting process using coarse sea salt. The average maturation time is one year. The favorable climatic conditions influence various dynamics of drying and maturation, which are reflected in color and texture of the muscle and in the richly expressed aroma of prosciutto.
Despite technological innovations, we have kept a classic method of production of this specialty. We are a producer that does not use additives, as it is the maturation time that ensures the development of a pleasant smell, taste and ruby red color of prosciutto.
