Emilia Romagna, Borgonovo Val Tidone
"Passion and continuous experimentation in order to get more and more healthy and highly digestible products are the capabilities that a sausage craftsman should always have." Angelo Capitelli - Owner
Claudio Capitelli, following a well-established family tradition in the aging of meats and cheeses, decided to start a new adventure and founded Capitelli F.lli in 1977. The company is still managed by Claudio Capitelli. His son Angelo, who is actively involved in production and commercial activities, has supported him in the management since 1994. Capitelli F.lli is located in Borgonovo Val Tidone, a green area characterized by the typical landscape of the Po areas and the neighbouring Piacenza hills, along the highway that connects that small town with Castel San Giovanni. The production area extends over 5,000 square meters, of which 3,200 are covered. It employs 19 people: 5 work in the administration offices, 14 are involved in the production process.
Over the last ten years, the company has invested significant resources in research and development activities, with the specific intent to recover the authentic characteristics of the traditional Italian ham, exalted through highly innovative ideas. About 37 tons of fresh raw material are worked per week, destined almost entirely to the production of high quality ham. A sales network made up of 40 agents guarantees the diffusion and promotion of the company’s products. Thanks to their capabilities and recurrent training, they provide assistance and professionalism to the customers.
The company visualizes its future as more and more involved in research activities, aimed at high quality productions and technology investments indispensable to achieve these goals.
