We promote proper nutrition, while conducting ongoing research and applying technological innovation to please the palate. Our research and development activities are committed daily to improving the nutritional quality of our charcuterie, offering a range that is also suitable for those who have to live with special dietary needs.

Gluten free

We are attentive to the nutritional needs of people with coeliac disease. That's why all Rovagnati products are completely gluten-free, from the sliced and diced charcuterie lines to the breaded products for which we use an alternative rice-based breadcrumbs that make them suitable for everyone. 

The AIC Handbook, ed 2023/24*, also includes several references from the Gran Biscotto, Borgo Rovagnati, Snello Rovagnati, 4YOU lines and many of our Cooked Ham slices reserved for the Gastronomy Market.

*More information on coeliac disease and the gluten-free diet can be found on the website of the Italian Coeliac Association: 

Milk and lactose free

We are sensitive to the dietary needs of all our customers. At RovaLab, our accredited in-house laboratory, we carry out targeted analyses aimed at detecting the presence of allergens, including milk proteins.

All our cured meats are lactose and milk product-free, and our production plants are all lactose-free except for Arcore, where ready-to-eat products and snacks are made. 

For those who are allergic or intolerant to milk derivatives we recommend the purchase of sliced meats in packaging that specifies "without milk derivatives".

On-going research and innovation

We’ve been working for some time now on constantly improving the nutritional quality of our cured meats. This bold, innovation-oriented effort has allowed us, following two years of research, to develop a food technology that makes it possible to preserve the meats without the use of nitrites.

From the launch in 2017 of Naturals, our first range of deli meats completely free from added preservatives and from antibiotics, to the Snello range in 2019. A commitment to quality that inspires us to continually offer innovative products, prepared in accordance with tradition and with an eye on the future, to meet everyone’s needs.

Low-fat charcuterie

We promote proper nutrition and we want to provide a better nutritional balance.

With Rovagnati Snello, we have reduced the fat content of our charcuterie and work constantly to improve its nutritional quality.

The line’s relaunch includes a further reduction in fat: 2% in GranCotto; -60% in GranCrudo and GranSalame; 1.5% in Turkey Rump; 1% in Chicken Breast. These products are in addition to the rest of the Snello range, which also includes Chicken Mortadella with Pistachios, Bresaola Punta d'Anca, GranCotto Cubes, and deli products such as Snello Cooked Ham and Snello Roast Turkey, with 3% and 2% fat, respectively.
