SUSTAINABILITY

 

Our core values and our work are both based on eco-sustainability and on the awareness of the need to protect the natural environment and safeguard public health.

Our products are characterised by a reduced environmental impact because they contain ingredients coming from organic farming.
A conscious choice lies at the basis of the production, regulated by Organic Certification Bodies that forbid the use of GMOs, colourings, chemical fertilizers and antiparasitic products, with the aim of obtaining a healthy product of superior quality.

The result is a product that has excellent organoleptic and nutritional characteristics and that is also tasty, genuine and suitable for everyone.

A CLEANER AND HEALTHIER ENVIRONMENT

Organic farming techniques respect the environment and its equilibrium. These techniques limit atmospheric and water pollution, avoid the excessive erosion of the natural resources and soil and also encourage environmental biodiversity.

 

MORE FERTILE LAND

The use of organic substances and the adoption of sustainable farming methods that do not exploit the soil in an intensive manner (for example crop rotation and non-intensive methods) improve soil conditions and protect natural fertility. Organic farming seeks to reverse the trend of modern intensive agriculture, in favour of a higher-quality production.

Organic farming is a production method defined and regulated at the Community level by EC Regulation 834/07 and the Implementing Regulation 889/08. The Regulations also control the labelling, controls, certifications and importation from non-EU countries.

PALM OIL FREE

We have decided to remove palm oil from all our products. Palm oil due to its characteristics is widely used as an important ingredient in the food industry. Palm oil besides facilitates the production process, as it is very stable over time, reduces the cost of the finished product as well as being practically flavourless.
Thanks only to the recent EU regulation no. 1169/2011 dedicated to food information for consumers, food labels must specify the kind of vegetable fat present (palm oil or others). Consequently, all consumers can exactly know all the products ingredients and thus evaluate the quantity and quality of the fats present.

Moreover, the palm oil cultivation often constitutes an environmental menace because it deprives land from forests of inestimable value as well as threatening biodiversity.
