Cured meats are wrapped in special food-grade paper to ensure the right level of moisture and allow them to continue to breathe. They are also vacuum-sealed.

The tips on how to store your delicacies, are really simple and can make all the difference in preserving product quality.

Cured Meat and cheeses can be kept in a vacuum seal until you decide to eat them.

Once opened, fresh cheeses should be stored on the coldest shelf of the refrigerator, while, the least cold shelf, is ideal for aged cheeses.

Cured meats should also be stored in the least cold part of the refrigerator.

Read our guide with tips for proper storage of cheeses and cured meats.

For some products, the reported weight refers to an approximate range. All of our products are prepared by hand, and cutting is also done manually-this is why weight variations may occur for the same product.

When preparing the order, our Logistics Team weighs each product to ensure that the actual weight corresponds to the weight communicated in the product sheet.

If the product weighs less than the communicated weight, we will refund the weight difference directly to the payment method used to complete the order.
