For two generations the Merlin family, with passion, has been dedicated to breeding for meat production. The careful processing takes place directly in our laboratory and the seasoning of the cold cuts in fresh and ventilated places to give our customers a product that is always good and genuine; this ensures that our products maintain all the good taste and flavors of the past.

In addition to our point of sale, present in the company, you can find us in some markets at Km 0 of Verona, where you can buy, in addition to our chicken, pork and beef, ready meals of our production. Of course, we can all visit our website.

We are also producers of Riso Vialone Nano Veronese, a kind of rice cultivated on land irrigated with resurgence water, the first in Italy to be protected with the European I.G.P. trademark.
The strong point of the company is the production with short chain of:

Stortina veronese – Slow Fooum Presidio, a small salami weighing less than two hectograms that is traditionally eaten in the lower Veronese area. The characteristic of the product is linked to the use of noble parts of the pork in the mixture (shoulder, loin, ham and bacon fat) and to the spicing with garlic macerated in white wine.
