PGI Sardinian lamb

Forma Group is a historical and active member of CON.T.A.S, the consortium for the protection of the PGI designation of Sardinian lamb.

It is often said that the quality of the land makes for good meat; a statement that is particularly true of Sardinian lamb, which draws its qualities from the peculiarities of the area in which it is reared.

As stated in the Specification, only lambs born and reared in Sardinia (…) in a completely natural environment characterized by wide open spaces exposed to strong sunshine, winds and the Sardinian climate – which perfectly meets the requirements of the species – can be considered PGI Sardinian lamb. Our lambs are mainly reared in the wild; only during the winter period and at night can they be housed in suitable facilities with adequate air circulation, lighting, flooring, sanitary facilities and checks. Lambs must be fed exclusively on their mother’s milk (so-called ‘milk lambs’), while for other types grazing can only be supplemented with natural foods and wild essences specific to the habitat of the island of Sardinia. The animals must be identified, no later than 20 days after birth, using manual, optical or electronic systems capable of ensuring product traceability in accordance with the legislation in force.

Such stringent specifications result in absolute excellence: meat that is the identity of Sardinia and an important part of our culture, beyond just gastronomy.

Farming and processing Sardinian PGI lamb is one of Forma Group’s most important activities, precisely because of the special nature of this meat protected by the PGI status. It is a great example of how to promote the uniqueness of our territory through the enhancement of its excellence: a commitment that the Forma Group is passionate about.

Lamb: quality and taste.

Lamb meat is nutritious and tasty, and can be a very important part of children’s diet, particularly during weaning. Lean and low in calories (100 grams of raw meat provide around 100 calories and contain 2.5g of fat), lamb is also rich in protein and iron.

It is used in many traditional Italian recipes, especially at Easter. In Sardinia, lamb is usually roasted or stewed, with small differences in preparation that vary in different parts of the island.
