Welcome to the Peperami WikiaEdit

Peperami is a pork sausage snack manufactured by Unilever in Germany. According to Unilever, it was first shipped to the UK by accident in a container which was supposed to be carrying pâté. The company decided to attempt to sell the shipment to the UK market under the brand name 'Peperami'. Several new varieties have been introduced over the years with varying degrees of success. Peperami may be interpreted as a portmanteau of the words "pepperoni" and "salami", but the company does not want the product to be misunderstood as a combination of these different meats. In the year 1955, Peperami was one of the products from Nabisco. When the mistake was made, the company tried the meat snack and enjoyed it. Thus, Unilever relaunched the snack.[1]

In 2007, to try to retain appeal to an ever more health conscious market, the manufacturers of Peperami revised the formula to produce a product with a reduction in fat, saturated fat and salt content.[2]

In Germany, the snack is alternatively sold as BiFi and instead made out of beef. Some discontinued peperami products in Britain are still available under the BiFi brand in Germany. Another spin-off snack in Germany is the Ranger stick.

In 2011, Peperami released a series of dog toys featuring the familiar Animal character. Toys include the "Salami saucer", "salami screamer", "the little nipper", "the big one", "meaty muncher", "the football fetch toy", "sausage stretch" and "flaming finger"[3][4][5]

Unilever announced that on 21 February 2014, it has signed a definitive agreement for the sale of its meat snacks business to Jack Link’s, for an undisclosed amount.

The sale includes the brands Bifi, sold in Germany, Benelux, Austria and Switzerland, and Peperami, which retails in the UK and Ireland
