Oliviero's family has been in the salumi world forever. His grandfather was already making salami in Norcia, Italy and then his father, and now him.
His great grandfather moved to Rome to bring his trade into a bigger market opening salumi stores throughout Rome.
In 1950 his grandfather started a manufacturing business that became one of the most successful salumi business in Rome.
Oliviero was born and raised in Rome into a family of salumi makers. As a boy, Olli spent plenty of time at his grandfather’s prosciutto and salami factories, and by an early age he picked up a lot of knowledge about how to cure various meats.
In 2000, Oliviero joined his grandfather’s company and started learning the traditional techniques of creating an every lasting salami filled with history, tradition, patience, and quality.
Ten years later, Olli decided to start his own company in Virginia, Olli Salumeria, and there began the journey which leads to today.
Olli Salumeria moved to Oceanside California to expand the company and products to an 80,000 sq ft facility producing over 100,000 lbs of salami a week and expand nationwide.
In 2017 Olli Salumaria became part of the snack world with Olli snacks.
