Description

Since its establishment in 1994, this Italian company has been producing local cheeses, guaranteeing professionalism and quality through the direct involvement of the owners involved in production. The cheeses produced by this company are excellent and fresh, without preservatives, highly digestible and easily matched with baked products, excellent to serve as an appetizer with cold cuts or sliced meats, or with fruit jellies or honey. Their versatility allows also it to be cooked to create tasty recipes based on meat or vegetables. Over time the selection of raw materials and food components used has allowed to place their cheeses in the high end of the regional market. This company exports its cheeses also to international markets, in particular the U.K. and German markets, thanks to direct contacts with industry professionals who distribute in those countries with weekly shipments departing from Italy. The opening of new European markets represents an important goal for the company, wishing to expand in a more systematical and organized way on new European markets. The daily quantity of processed milk is 80 quintals for 12 cycles of processing aimed at the production of fresh cheeses and the company turnover is around 3 million euros. They are interested in disseminating the cheese culture and strengthening their distribution network on foreign markets, in particular in Northern Europe (Poland and Scandinavia) and in the Balkan area, through partnerships for distribution services agreements in European markets with the Horeca distribution in order to establish a successful, long term mutual co-operation.
