Columbus was founded on a stubborn pursuit of perfect taste. We’ve been committed to crafting great-tasting salami and deli meats for over 100 years. And while a lot about us has changed since our founding in 1917, the best things have stayed the same.

We use only premium cuts of pork and beef, and whole chicken and turkey breasts in our products—never the “chopped and formed” meat others use.

We use a special blend of spices —each one carefully sourced and chosen to highlight the flavor of the meat.
