The breeding hens whose chicks are destined to become Galletto Vallespluga, are free to roam in large spaces.
The chick that will become Galletto
After having been laid, the fertilized eggs are then gently transported to the hatchery, in the green of the picturesque Piacenza hills, where the chicks’ll hatch.
The breeding of the Galletto Vallespluga
Newborn chicks are then transported to the Galletto farms, near the Alps: here they can roam in large spaces, with mountain air and water, feeding on corn, soy and wheat-based vegetable feed.
The transformation of the Galletto
When the Galletto reach the right weight, they’re taken to the Gordona plant in Valchiavenna, the only Galletto Vallespluga processing center, to be transformed into the finished product.
The Galletto comes to the table
Vallespluga is committed, through its fleet of refrigerated trucks, to daily distribute the finished product to national wholesalers. This important logistical and organizational commitment is essential to ensure our customers find the Galletto in the shops every day.
