About Ermes Fontana
Fontana Ermes S.p.A. was founded at the end of the 50s by Ermes Fontana and is one of the producers of PDO Parma Ham that can boast a longer and more prestigious tradition. Located in the heart of the Baganza Valley, over the years it has been able to blend the ancient and irreplaceable human art with the most modern technology.
Continuing the family tradition, since he was a child Mr Fontana Ermes used to go with his father during winter season to kill pigs raised in the farms of each family. That was a big responsability due to the high value of pork meat, which was fundamental for peasant families’ diet throughout the year.
For this reason, those who carried out this job with competence and ability were respected and appreciated. Starting the production was just the natural outcome of that job. Mr Fontana Ermes began his business in 1959 with the salting of 17 fresh thighs: from them, he produced hams and found the buyer even before they were cured. That was the result of the respect people had for his job.
