INNOVATION AND QUALITY

Even the best product packaged with the best ingredients is killed by pasteurization.
25 years ago ,starting with this idea, we invented and developed a unique technology, first PATENTED and then CERTIFIED.
The intuition that makes us unique? Decreasing the amount of water inside the leaves of the plants, so as to avoid nourishing bacterial forms and ensure a long shelf life.
We can guarantee over time the freshness ,the colour and the aroma of our products for more than two years in jar and one year in a plastic container.
A dedicated factory, over 500 tons of fresh vegetables processed each year from May to October, selected and analyzed daily. All this to get to a unique result:
CONSTANTLY FRESH PRODUCTS WHICH MAINTAIN THEIR BEST CHARACTERISTICS IN THE COURSE OF THE TIME

OUR CRAFTMANSHIP

For some “precious” raw materials we still prefer to rely on the “expert” hands of our employees.
We are very proud to have in a modern and technological company, a corner of true craftsmanship where everything is selected, prepared and packaged by hand.
The difference? Your customers will tell you once they’ve tasted our sun dried
tomatoes and our pitted olives in olive oil.

ART IN FOOD LINE

Art in Food® is Pesto Vivo®, the best we have been able to do in Costa Ligure : a special selection of basil, parmesan cheese matured 18 months, extra virgin olive oil and whole pine nuts.
To dress it we were inspired by Pop Art of the 60s, a such loved period . . .
For Art in Food® we wanted to develop the concept of an infinite choice of pesto, which is why the line includes Paprika Pesto, Arrabbiata Pesto, Lemon Pesto, Sage and Truffle Pesto. Any other Costa Ligure product can be dressed Art in Food and the guideline is always the same: selection of ingredients and utmost care in the preparation.

PRODUCTS FOR CATERING AND RESTAURANTS

Also in this field we have an offer that few others can repeat.
In our vacuum-sealed catering packages we can offer to our customers not only the same products of the retail line , but also the basics diluted in oil. Why give a creative chef a completed Pesto? Better to give a base of basil in oil that allows him to invent the final recipe.
That’s why we created the Basil, Arugula, Nettle and Parsley Cream which were followed by the Cream of Rosemary, Dill and Coriander.

DOSETTE

When you have a perfect product such as our “Old genoa” Pesto , all that you need to do is to offer your customers a choice of uses.
That’s why the Dosettes and the Toppings of Pesto alla Genovese were created.
Both the 15g and the 25g Dosette give seasoning in various situations. Small, safe, and easy to open, they can be inserted in the envelope of the pizza and for example used with salmon and in canteens or where hundreds of meals are prepared every day.
Ideal to optimize costs and dose it precisely

TOPPING

For the Topping instead we took into consideration the fact that with the exception of Italy, in all other countries Genovese Pesto is used to accompany all types of dishes and sandwiches and with the convenient up-side down bottle you squeeze and Hey Presto! The sandwich is ready as well as the caprese salad and of course … the pasta.
No more spoons and containers or open jars to clutter the kitchen table.
A practical and clean way to save the most precious thing you have: your time!

pesto vivo
Pesto Vivo is Costa Ligure top product, the result of long studies for the production of a fresh pesto , not pasteurized and with a shelf life of 24 months in jar. A pesto which gained costa ligure the sgs certification.

The lack of pasteurization is a great advantage under the nutritional and organoleptic point of view and we warmly advise to use our pesto vivo raw, directly on the pasta , without any heating , eventually adding just a small amount of extra virgin olive oil and parmesan cheese. From the organoleptic point of view the difference between our pesto vivo and pasteurized product can be easily appreciated by anybody.
