If attending the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York City this June, make sure to stop by Specialities, Inc.’s booth #472 and experience the incredible taste of the world renowned air-cured Bayonne Ham from France. One lucky show attendee will win 2 lbs. of this prestigious ham which will be shipped directly to your home. To win, you must stop by Specialities, Inc.’s booth #472 and drop off your business card. On the last day of the show, Specialities, Inc. will draw the winning business card and notify the winner by e-mail. Bayonne Hams are air-dried, dark in color, with a very tender mild flavor with only a hint of saltiness. All Bayonne Hams have stringent levels of production requirements (breeding, slaughter and butchering, salting and distribution) all approved by officers from the Consortium du Jambon de Bayonne.
Specialities, Inc., the exclusive importer of Bayonne Ham in the United States will be showcasing both the traditional tasting Bayonne Ham and a flavor of Bayonne Ham that has been cured and coated using France’s world famous AOC (Appellation d'Origine Controlee) Espelette Red Peppers. By being the exclusive importer of the Bayonne Ham, Specialities, Inc. has completed the trilogy of the great air-cured hams in the United States; the Italian Prosciutto di Parma, the Spanish Jamon Serrano, and now the French Bayonne Ham.
A ham can only become a Bayonne Ham if it’s produced in the very specific, clearly defined areas of the Adour basin in the heart of French Basque for salting and South of France for rearing. All Bayonne Hams are assured by the Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) since October 7, 1998 and is protected under the European Union PGI label. The PGI label informs consumers about the specific characteristics of products and protects their geographical names from imitation and usurpation. Bayonne hams have only four ingredients; specially-bred and fed French pigs (corn and cereals), salt from the natural springs deep beneath the Pyrenees Mountains, air and the most important ingredient, time.
Specialities, Inc. was awarded the prized cured ham from France last July by the Delpeyrat Bayonne Ham Company based upon their expertise and experience to source, distribute and create sell-through of “Best of Class” specialty brands in the United States. After a two year approval process, the USDA put their stamp of approval to begin importing the Bayonne Ham with the first shipments arriving in August of this year.
“We are honored to have been selected as the exclusive importer of the Bayonne Ham in the United States,” said Richard Kessler, of Specialities, Inc. “We can’t wait for show attendees to experience the exceptional taste and smooth texture of this legendary ham.”
