Our adventure started in 1925 when, in the old town centre of San Miniato, my grandfather Guido Falaschi started the first family butcher's shop.
Guido was the progenitor who transmitted his enthusiasm to his sons, Vasco and Bruno, that is my father and my uncle. They went on with the activity with great passion and ability until 1967 when it was myself to take the reins of the business. My name is Sergio Falaschi and I represent the III generation of “Master Butchers”. In recent years, my son Andrea has decided to join the business, bringing his enthusiasm and new ideas: Andrea represents the IV generation of the Falaschi family working in this activity.
I have emphazed the qualities of traceability of the product, through all the passages of the supply chain. I have always believed in the importance of the so called “filiera corta e tracciabilità” (short distribution system and traceability of the products). These ideas have been the basis of our business since the beginning, giving us the opportunity to obtain the trust of our customers who are aware of the quality and genuinity of our products.
