ST. LOUIS – Charcuterie and specialty meat processing company Volpi Foods announced on Sept. 19 that its products will be sold at retail giant Target Corp. stores in 17 Midwest and Southern states. Volpi’s Genoa Nuggets, Sliced Genoa Salame, Sliced Traditional Prosciutto, and Sliced Mild Trio will be available in Target stores in states that include Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The company said partnering with Target gives the company an opportunity to sell its products to an even larger customer base while promoting its “Raised Responsibly” Midwest pork.

This past July, Volpi announced the launch of new Eco-Pack packaging, which uses less plastic and utilizes curbside recyclable paper.  

“We are thrilled to partner with Target and bring our products to even more customers,” said Lorenza Pasetti, chief executive officer of women-owned Volpi Foods. “Our partnership is a testament to the quality of our meats and the care we put into every step of the production. Joining with Target shows a step in the right direction to give customers the best products possible with a focus on sustainability and high-quality ingredients.”
