Tradition

The Premio Tradition

In the shadow of Mt. Vesuvius, in southern Italy’s Campania region, you’ll find the beautiful city of Napoli, which the rest of us call Naples. It’s a place where hearty, mouth-watering food is both a shared passion and time-honored tradition.  It also happens to be the home of our founder’s family.

Over the years, we have been asked repeatedly what’s the meaning or significance behind the Premio name. In Italian, Premio means “prize” or “reward,” which is exactly what you can expect from our sausage products: prize-winning taste and a delicious, rewarding meal for you and your family.

Premio Foods continues the tradition today by using a recipe, which has been handed down from generation-to-generation. For more than 43 years, Premio has been passionately making sausage, using only select, butcher-quality cuts of meat, carefully blended with a secret mixture of fine imported spices, to deliver the perfect, juicy bite every single time.

“Hi, I’m Marc Cinque, President and CEO of Premio Foods.  My family has been making great tasting sausage products for over 40 years, and I take great pride in knowing that the products I grew up loving are the same great products enjoyed by many families today.  We use the freshest butcher-quality cuts of pork or chicken, and spices sourced from all-around the world and that’s it; nothing else.  From there, all our products are handmade the exact same way they have been for generations.  We will keep our promise to you that the commitment to making great sausage products will never be compromised.  Thank you and enjoy!” – Marc
