me pig

Milouin invites the new protagonist of your “Me, product” section. A playful text in which a product or a living material is told in the first person in an impertinent, funny and poetic tone. Me, product.
I am not a simple pig with which one makes a simple sausage.

I have the particularity of being the only breed of Slovenian native pig: born, raised and processed only in Slovenia, more precisely in the region of Krsko Polje... Do not try to pronounce it, rather try to taste me.

For this, the reference remains the Biosing house, a know-how that dates back to 1492. Note that at the time, the most significant event was the discovery of the Americas... So to stand out, this small company has wanted to do as well by making top-of-the-range deli meats, relying on the different lunar phases with careful and delicate methods that do me credit, and by preparing my meat in such a way that it becomes deli meats comparable to little jewels .

And like the latter, each product has a very specific packaging, like a box.
The least we can say is that they know how to show me off. It must be said that I am not an ordinary pig: my omega 3 and 6 intake is much higher than other breeds of pig, which makes my meat healthier, more tender, juicier and more aromatic.

And if I was chosen to develop such delicacies it is because my meat is also recognized for its quality, and my fat for its flavor. Moreover, my excellence is such that even my tasting becomes a real ritual for these artisans of happiness. A precise methodology that calls for a real awakening of the senses and a perfect oenological association selected for each charcuterie...

So I like - certainly - rolling in the mud, but thanks to the ancestral know-how of these master butchers, you will soon hear about me from the four "snouts" of the world!
