Reed takes in flavor of Burrillville plant's success

August 3, 2014

BURRILLVILLE — U.S. Senator Jack Reed Friday joined the Daniele Inc. owners - brothers Davide and Stefano Dukcevich - for a discussion on growing Rhode Island’s food economy and a “hard hat” tour of Daniele’s new $60 million state-of-the-art charcuterie factory.

The facility, which is nearing completion, will be the largest and most modern plant of its kind in the world.

Daniele, Inc. has its roots in Italy, where it was originally founded seven decades ago before coming to Rhode Island in 1976, when Vlado Dukcevich came to America and built the first Daniele Inc. prosciutto plant in Burrillville. Now a third-generation, family-owned and operated company, Daniele Inc. produces premium gourmet meats using family recipes, traditional old world methods, and new technologies in their climate-controlled facilities that replicate conditions in Italy and ensure maximum freshness, quality and safety.

In recent years, Daniele Inc. has doubled in size from 150 employees in 2009 to more than 350 today. And the company, which started as one facility, now has three separate plants, with a fourth soon to open. Their newest facility produces around 200,000 pounds of salami each week.
