A four-generation family business

Felsineo is a steadfast company led by the fourth generation of its founding family. Today it is also the main brand of Mortadella Bologna IGP (PGI) covering nearly a third of the total production.

Bologna is the hometown of both FELSINEO and MORTADELLA. This ancient pork sausage, well-known and appreciated all over the world, is part of Bologna’s great gastronomic tradition. Felsina is the name given to Bologna during the Etruscan age. The company’s name thus originates from its origins to reinforce the bond with the city and its unique product.
