Our Story

Volto Di Guanciale, or what is now VDG Salumi, started as passion project of curing meat at home. Though the process has become more sophisticated, VDG will always be dedicated to handcrafting artisanal salumi. VDG can be found feeding purveyors of cured meats in restaurants and grocery stores across Alberta, Canada. Sourcing local ingredients and local talent, all of VDG’s products are hand made to the highest standard of quality. Rest assured, you are in the hands of people
who love food.

We are driven by quality.

We’re a group of hard-working restaurant guys who truly believe that every product in the kitchen should be of quality, local ingredients. Each product goes through an extensive curing, drying, and aging phase that is checked over time to bring out the most flavour. VDG Salumi is a leader in providing a quality product to those who have the same passion about food as us.

With a dedicated facility and the ability to bring our product to retail locations, restaurants, and private clients, we’re the best you can get - honestly.
