Behind each phase, behind each product, there is the work of many people who share the same values and are committed every day to making the Supply chain an innovative and sustainable production model.
Calabria: true, genuine land, rich in traditions
The secret of the products of the Madeo Supply chain lies in the selection of ingredients, in the use of healthy raw materials, in compliance with the ancient recipes and local traditions.
The Madeo Supply chain was born from the intuition and passion of a young Calabrian entrepreneur, Ernesto Madeo, who together with his family created the first pig farm in 1984. After 30 years of activity, with the entry of the second generation, the tradition renews over time.
The large Madeo family is made up of about 150 people who work with great commitment and passion.
The credibility and future of the Supply chain are concentrated in their expert hands.
The territory is the heritage of the Madeo Supply chain. The water of the luxuriant hills and the air of the two seas of Calabria, the Ionian and the Tyrrhenian, natural resources of the earth, contribute to the growth of plants and give unique aromas to cured meats.
The Supply chain represents a sustainable model, perfectly integrated into the territory and respectful of the environment, which is also protected through the use of renewable energy sources (photovoltaic and biogas). Innovation in respect of tradition makes it guardian of a heritage of biodiversity that the Calabrian territory offers.

The Supply chain pays great attention to social development, in order to promote transfer of skills and to guarantee the continuity of a craft and employment in the Calabrian territory.
The vision of the entrepreneur Ernesto Madeo, in fact, understands work as a sense of well-being in realizing and feeling fulfilled.
