Mostarda is a sweet-spicy speciality: whole-candied fruit with addition of mustard-flavoured syrup. It is usually served with boiled meat or fresh/seasoned cheese.
It’s the year 1977 when Bruno Barbieri finally comes back to Voghera, in the Oltrepo area. He moved from Casteggio, where he was born, first to Milan – where he started his experience as an entrepreneur. Once “home” again, he feels ready for a new adventure: a family company committed to the total respect of traditions, values and flavors of this area. So, Bruno takes over the company, creating the new company Pianetta di Barbieri & C. Our leading product? “Voghera mustard” of course. Its bright colors and its unique flavor have been brightening up house tables during the winter months.
Every Italian municipality can award a product with the De.C.O (Municipal Denomination of Origin) Mark of Origin. This action aims at promoting and protecting products deserving particular attention two to their characteristics and genuineness. In the year 2005 the Municipality of Voghera awarded our Mostarda di Voghera with the De.C.O. mark, an important acknowledgment highlighting the strict connection of this product with the territory and the ancient Italian gastronomic tradition.
