Making delicious salami takes time and dedication
Kotivara is specialised in making tasty salami and other cold smoked products. When making our products we use a traditional method in which salami is cured slowly and with dedication in the soft smoke aroma of alder, cut from the Hailuoto Island from the Gulf of Bothnia.
Depending on the product, the curing of salami or cold smoked meat takes from four to six weeks. This uniquely long curing time gives our salami its soft and delicious taste.
Our product selection includes various kinds of salami and other cold smoked products. Our products are available in almost every food shop in Finland.
Our best known products are the genuine Venäläinen Meetvursti (Russian salami) which we have made for more than 60 years from an original Russian recipe that came to Finland from St. Petersburg. Our Venäläinen Meetvursti is one of the most popular salami brands in Finland. In addition, our products are available in almost all food shops in Sweden.
Kotivara was founded in 1943.
