The strong commitment to the development of the territory, enhancement of business, the contribution to the development of the associated farms, investing in technical innovation, means that the association can diventerare the best launching point for all those small and medium-sized enterprises, to date, in such resource-rich territory, they are penalized with respect to all activities devoid of quality products and benefited from marketing studies, publicizing and communication.


Advantages - All The Advantages of an Associated of Nero di Calabria


After visiting some of the small and medium farmers of the black pig in Calabria, shared their problems and conducted a market survey, it was decided to found the Nero di Calabria Association.



The association has launched a serious and structural enhancement and promotion of derivatives of Calabria by creating a black pig industry and buying groups. The Nero di Calabria association, also agreed memoranda of understanding with other associations and institutions, dealing with the preservation and protection of both the territory that both products of the Calabrian traditions, the interchange for: qualification, promotion and dissemination on Italian and foreign markets; participation in fairs, organization of events, fairs, festivals, conferences and seminars related to the promotion of culture and the Calabrian gastronomy, with special reference to rural culture and rural traditions.



Organization to help restore activities, animal breeds of rural tradition, in the process of extinction, activities aimed at specific objectives: To contribute to the recovery and cataloging of native regional animal breeds, in fact favoring the implementation of policies and legislation on nature and biodiversity, both locally and regionally.


Black Pig


In murattiana statistics, compiled in 1811, states that in Calabria Hither "The blacks dé industry is maintained also gives villagers the poorest, and to store reason, and for the provision of the necessary seasoning suet dé their daily food." Later it is stressed that the spread of these animals was so widespread and necessary from an economic point of view, to be diffused into the houses: "homes ... confined, poorly ventilated ... harbored happy chickens, farmyard animals and even blacks" .



What were these "blacks", so essential, we are talking about and that repeatedly Statistics appointment? Animals in the black cloak with coarse bristle and large drooping ears eyes on a straight nose profile and a conical head. Animals that grazed free and undisturbed the streets of Calabria countries and constituted one of the cornerstones of the domestic economy. Animals so familiar, so easily identifiable by even render superfluous the use of Noun: pig, pork or pork more easily. Animals that in the mid-seventies of the last century have risked extinction because of un'utilitaristica race for ease of serial breeding, the growth speed, the quantitative yield at the expense of quality.


The pig, direct descendant of the wild boar, born black and was immediately identified as animal sacrifice. The Calabrian variety is of uncertain origin. But it seems that it comes from Puglia strain, widespread throughout the south, which in turn derives from Caserta pig. The black pig of Calabria give the best of themselves if they nourish predispositions and eating habits. There is a battery-animal, because in that case the yield would be far less than the "pink" pig and therefore not affordable in the industry.


Black - The "Olive Oil" On All Fours


Unlike other breeds, the breed of black Calabrian group of subjects in slow growing, producing, however, a meat of high quality, suitable for the production of sausages and fine hams, already Casanova, in his memoirs, writing many negative things about the seven hundred Calabria, enhances the Calabrian salami, made from the meat of "blacks" as the best he had ever eaten. In the field of laboratory analysis of the black pig , it emerges that: the pH of the meat tends to lower more quickly than in pigmented races modern depigmented.



The monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids of the omega-3 and omega-6 are in a much higher extent in the flesh of blacks pigs reared outdoors. With cholesterol problems of the modern world that lays favorably. ( Data presented at Terra Madre, Turin from Dr. M.Coracci University of Pisa, Dott.sa Ernestine Lüdeke responsible for the project on the Black Pig , Spain, it is you who created the promotional motto for the black pig : " Black ?! olive oil on all fours . " ) The blacks pigs are free from skin diseases, generated by long exposure to the sun than modern breeds depigmented. The breeding of such hardy breed favors the development of niche products intended both for domestic consumption to both the typical and farm restaurants sector, increasingly expanding.



Savor local and traditional product is in some ways a journey back, a direct homologation hetero escape from that world where even the food is globalized and the food tends to the homogeneity of taste and flavor, according to commercial rules.



Another advantage is that animals, due to their hardiness, they can be kept outside the whole year and are very well adapted to any type of power supply, from the one that comes from pasture. Of against the breed it is slow growing and is usually slaughtered after 14 months of breeding, compared to 8-10 months required for the crossings on the market.



In Italy operates the National Swine Breeders Association, which manages the registry of swine and its stud book, functional tools for the conservation of genetic traits and the correct implementation of the crossings. In addition to advertising and the fundamental economic value of the industry, the Association, at a technical level, aims to improve the genetics of race, through the evaluation and the selection of breeding stock.


The Black Pig of Calabria - Stories, Traditions and Pavaler


Among the travelers-narrators of the second half of the nineteenth century, which fueled the fashion inaugurated by the Grand Tour, there is George Robert Gissing (1857-1903), known English novelist of the Victorian era. His works are characterized by a realistic style, according to the dictates of the French naturalist school. In November 1897 Paola reached by sea, after embarking in Naples. The Calabria constituted reason of enormous interest for those who wished to know and study places full of history, archeology, but also unique popular habits.



Gissing is skilled designer sketches of authentic newspapers, which make clear the human condition experienced by decent people and seemingly resigned to a harsh and unchanging life. The doors wide open everywhere, allow me to take a look ... life in a village called civilian could have been more primitive than under those wretched roofs. The inhabitants had a sad and depressed look ... no one showed the slightest curiosity as I passed ... no one asked for alms. The women came out in the rain protected by a cape.


One example of something that looked like a happy vivacity. Unfortunately one of the two who certainly remit the skin will be the pig, since the main dish of Squillace was the black pork stew with potatoes.


Considering it a Homeric diet, Gissing himself felt stuffed with this meat with a modest satisfaction. They are excerpts from "On the shores of the Ionian Sea", Calabrian account of the experience, where as in a kind of photograph describes the lives of Squillace on the nineteenth finish.
