Questions and Answers
The secret of the quality of our cold cuts.
The Bastion Smaku products are unusual and exquisite because we use the highest quality raw meat and herbal blends that we compose ourselves. We must emphasize that from 1 kg of raw meat, on average, 0.6 kg of finished product is made. The production cycle lasts 2 weeks. It is planned in detail so that the taste of cured meat is always unique. In our products you will not find chemicals and food additives that are supposed to increase the weight of products and extend their shelf life. Thanks to the innovative production technology and the appropriate selection of certified herbs and spices, we extract the best from meat. Maintaining the highest quality and unique taste is our priority. However, we are still looking for further inspiration to create even more magnificent products.
Our aim is not to compete with cold cuts that are on store shelves. The Bastion Smaku products are chosen by conscious recipients – taste connoisseurs.
What constitutes the highest quality of our meat?
Important elements guaranteeing the highest quality of meat is that it comes from a special breeding line of the Great White Polish pig. It is extremely appreciated by producers. The meat is subject to a strict selection process. Qualified butchers also play a very important role in the entire production process. Its task is cutting and qualitative assessment of the raw material. It should be emphasized that meat, the quality of which does not meet our expectations, returns to the supplier. The raw material from which the Bastion Smaku products are made is identified by the Commercial Identification Document (HDI). Thanks to it, meat turnover is regulated and serves to confirm its quality in accordance with EU requirements. The meat supplier meets the HACCP standards, i.e. the Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points System. The Bastion Smaku is also subject to veterinary supervision and meets all sanitary requirements.
The Bastion Smaku purchases from the best Polish certified raw meat producer. Each batch of meat has a quality certificate. Meat, thanks to which our products are so exquisite, is also used in the best hotels and restaurants through all Europe.
White coating. What is this and how to deal with it?
During the ripening of cured meat, dry white coating may appear on their surface. This is called “Frosting” – a natural phenomenon that arises under specific conditions. During the ripening of cured meat, salt forms, which creates a characteristic white coating. It is safe for health and it does not affect the taste of products.
The fastest and easiest way to get rid of the coating is to wipe the sausage with a cloth soaked in natural oil. In addition, it will close the pores of the sausage, which will significantly slow down the drying process.
Under what conditions and how long purchases are transported to the customer?
We carry out orders with door-to-door delivery in cooperation with a courier company. We have a partnership agreement that obliges our forwarder to deliver parcels within 96 hours. Shipping is well planned and organized safely for products. After passing the internal and final quality control of Bastion Smaku, the finished products are transferred to packing in tight thermally insulated boxes together with refrigeration cartridges. In addition, the products are hermetically sealed, so that – on the opening day of the individual packaging – they are always fresh.
