With the evolution of consumer habits in mind, Rigamonti started to develop a product with a high service content for foreign retailers in 2014. It targeted the strong appeal of traditional Italian food destined for “consumption on the go” that was ideal for modern and dynamic consumers with little time to devote to cooking. In other words, consumers, who were inclined to opt for ready-made meals, yet attentive to quality and sensitive to the issue of food waste. It was against this background that Dalter Alimentari’s and Rigamonti’s collaboration flourished. Their partnership led to the creation of the Menù Bresaola, targeting the Swiss, German, and French retail shelves.

Dalter Alimentari proposes its single-dose cheese sachets to Rigamonti, which are ideal to be blended as ingredients into the meat and cold cut packages ready for consumption. In addition to being practical to use and opposed to food waste, these single-dose sachets represent a state-of-the-art profile concerning food hygiene and safety. Once packaged, the cheese is no longer touched until its consumption. The Valtellinaean company can choose between a very broad, diverse offer in terms of weight range, dimensions, cheese type, and cuts. They follow a series of tests, allowing them to identify the optimal solution. The gastronomically most appropriate combination with Bresaola is the one with the King of Cheeses, as one endeavours to give the product a strong Italian touch. The final result is thus a Carpaccio of Bresaola with flakes of Parmigiano Reggiano, as well as drops of balsamic vinegar of Modena IGP. This simple and quick-to-prepare cold dish can be served both as a starter and second dish.
