PITSILIA Lountza is a delicious cut of smoked pork loin. A traditional Cypriot delicacy, best served as part of a meze, lightly grilled alongside grilled halloumi. Can also be enjoyed straight from the pack, and cut into thick chunks, served with fresh tomatoes, cucumber, and our fantastic variety of olives from The King of Olives.
History: Lountza, together with other meat products, used to be one of the most important foods for rural Cypriot families. The absence of refrigerators led to the need of finding preservation methods, that would allow for the availability of meat throughout the year. The region of Pitsilia is an area of high altitude and its cold climate was favourable for meat preservation.
PITSILIA have been manufacturing and packaging meat in Cyprus since 1989.
