When I first opened Umberto’s Italian food and wine specialist in Thame near Oxford 25 years ago, many people thought I was mad to open a business so exclusive in such a small town. They thought it would not last for more than a year.
Well, 25 years later, I am still there stronger than ever, having customers coming from every part of the UK to see our range of products – including our best-selling product: the one and only Prosciutto di Parma!
Being a Parma Ham Specialist isn’t just an honour, but a privilege, and I am very grateful to the Consorzio for being so supportive throughout the years.
Very special people and very special places where Parma Ham is not just a ham, it’s Prosciutto di Parma.
All over the world there are many places selling Prosciutto di Parma.
Some of these places are particularly special and help to confirm Prosciutto di Parma as a great quality product.
We would like to acknowledge and reward these places and individuals that continually make Prosciutto di Parma so special.
Thanks to them, Prosciutto di Parma continues to be recognized as a unique and quality product.

Some testimonies of past Specialists of the month.
“Parma Ham in our butcher and delicatessen shop It is always a special moment when we slice Parma Ham. Consumers always ask for this ham on special or selcted occasions and for tasting. It is sliced , handled and packed with the greatest care and it is often purchased and given as a gift. We are proud to be selected and enjoy giving ultimate care to this product with a great story.”
– Paul Brands
“We proudly slice only Prosciutto di Parma in all of our markets, and our guests agree that there is no substitute! Lesser hams can’t come close to genuine Prosciutto di Parma’s perfectly balanced scent and flavor or its tender and creamy mouth feel. No other ham is as versatile or satisfying from breakfast in the morning to dessert in the evening.”
– Chef Mick (Michaelangelo) Rosacci
