National Organization Cured Meat Tasters
ONAS was established in 1999 when the association was registered in the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Artisanship of Cuneo (Piemonte region), receiving legal recognition in 2009.
It is a non-profit association that provides its members with specific skills in sensory analysis. Using his/her human senses, a trained ONAS taster is able to objectively evaluate a cured meat product, thus promoting its knowledge, culture and territory to which it belongs.
ONAS is structured in territorial delegations that organise periodical tasting sessions reserved for its members.
