Maison Bertolin - Cured meat factory
The Salumificio Maison Bertolin (cured meat factory) boasts a legacy almost sixty years old; in fact, Guido Bertolin established the first slaughterhouse in Arnad in 1957. Over the years, his profession became a family heritage and the secrets were passed down from generation to generation. The quality, care and spirit that characterise the production remain unchanged and the Salumificio Maison Bertolin is a modern business and an important point of reference for the Aosta Valley food culture.
