Castelfrigo, Italy


This is the only factory in Italy that specializes in pork back ribs. It processes only the pork back ribs which contain delicious fat that Japanese enjoy, and is extracted from the pork produced for Parma ham in northern Italy. More than 100 containers of back rib pieces are collected weekly and sent to the futuristic meat factory where all processes are precisely controlled by computers, from the introduction of food materials, to manufacturing, all the way to shipment. MIC was the first to import their products to Japan in 2008. Their pork rib, which is shaped to a special standard, was introduced to the Japanese market, and its sales have exceeded all expectations.
