Our Mission and Our Values
The name Cioli has always been renowned for its genuine and excellent quality Porchetta.
The company was founded in 1917 by Ovidio Cioli at the age of 17. He had an amazing intuition: he bought a pig, he deboned it, he seasoned it by using only natural flavours such as salt, pepper, garlic, and rosemary. Next he sew the two meat parts shut and put it into the oven at a high temperature. That is how Porchetta was born.
All the techniques regarding the production of this unique culinary product have been kept alive by the Cioli family for one hundred years and for four generations.
Currently the production takes place in our large production plant in Ariccia, Rome as well as in Union, New Jersey which was opened in 2008.
Both companies are run by Fabio and Luca Cioli.
Over the years Porchetta has received several different awards for its quality both on a national level as well as on an international level.
