The “Mortadella Bologna
” PGI is a cold cut product made with pure pork meat, finely chopped, mixed with lard, lightly flavored with spices, stuffed and baked. The product is marketed as "Mortadella Bologna" PGI. It is sold whole, in pieces or slices, unpackaged, vacuum-packed or in modified atmosphere packaging. The full and balanced flavour of "Mortadella Bologna" PGI is the result of the use of prime pork cuts, including the fatty parts: in fact, only gullet fat is selected, the most prestigious adipose tissue, which gives the product a sweeter flavour.
Following this recognition, only the “Mortadella Bologna” can boast the PGI mark trade, while all other products not covering the rules of this disciplinary, can be sold as a common “mortadella” and cannot use the “Bologna” name or the heading PGI on the sold products.
