A rigorous approach you can trust in

We act in strict accordance with a framework of internal rules and external control systems which are designed to ensure the reliability and independence of all our actions:

  • a governance system that guarantees full autonomy with regard to producers, and ensures that directors act in the interests of the sector as a whole and of all members of the consortium;
  • a number of internal management tools designed to ensure a fair approach to the way in which we conduct our activities;
  • a precise and reliable monitoring and control process, conducted through an independent body.

Time-honoured method, innovative practices

We pursue innovation in order to ensure high-quality products, enhanced by a powerful blend of ancient traditions and technological innovations:

  • traditional methods and working practices that are handed down through the generations and which serve to preserve product quality;
  • an ongoing commitment in the quest for innovative solutions that strengthen the relationship of trust with consumers, through transparent and sustainable management of the production process.
