Natural Casing Co. carries a broad range of natural specialty casings for “Old World” artisan sausage production.
Working closely with our suppliers to ensure that we select casings of only the finest quality, we tailor our products to meet your specifications for composition, length, and diameter, to ensure that you get the best possible results for your cured, cooked, or smoked product.
We supply casings for a variety of uses, including:
- Summer Sausage
- Polish Sausage
Old World SpecialitiesWe offer several different types of sewn casing products. Our flagship specialty is the Sewn Fabric Lined Hog Bung, developed by Stephen Dirtzu, Sr., as an alternative to traditional sewn casings in the 1960s. We supply traditional Sewn Hog Bungs as well. These larger-diameter casings products are ideal for Old World specialties such as Liverwurst and Braunschweiger.
Semi-Dry & Cured ProductsWe supply Sewn Beef Middles and Sewn Hog Afterends for use in semi-dry and dry (cured) products. The composition of the casing is tailored to the sausage-maker’s processing and/or drying conditions, to help the finished product achieve the desired qualities in appearance and taste.
Cut & Tied Casings
We cut & tie Beef Rounds, Beef Middles, Hog Bungs, Hogbung Afterends, and Hog Middles to customer specifications for small-diameter cooked or cured sausages. All our cut & tied casings are hand-tied by experienced workers under our supervision.
We carry a full line of Beef Casings, including Beef Bung Caps, Beef Rounds, and Beef Middles, used for a variety of cooked and/or cured sausages. Natural Casing Company supplies only the highest quality, fat-free Brazilian Beef Casings. We work very closely with our Brazilian supplier to meet our customers’ expectations for quality and price.
Other Specialty Casings
Natural Casing Company selects Hog Bungs and Hogbung Afterends, and carries Hog Stomachs and Hog Middle Caps used for liver sausage or salami. We also supply hog and sheep casings used in the manufacture of sausages such as bratwurst and wieners to local and regional processors.
