The taste of excellence

Antica Larderia Mafalda

Mafalda is the oldest lard shop in Colonnata, born in 1928 when lard was only the poor companion of the marble quarrymen. In 2003 it obtained the IGP certification and the EEC stamp which certify the quality of the raw materials, the particularity of the processing and the originality of the product. Our attention to quality leads us to scrupulously follow a recipe handed down for over four generations. Aging for at least six months makes our product one of a kind, giving a rich and unmistakable taste that will leave you speechless. Try the excellence of the flavors of the past, made with passion and dedication, just like in the past! We are certain that you will appreciate the difference and will be conquered by the authentic taste of simple things.
Join us on the journey towards real and genuine taste.
