• Pioneers of the Italian organic revolution
Alce Nero was started in the 1970’s, when two cooperatives of young Italian farmers decided to undertake a new type of activity: one that would produce wholesome food while respecting the environment. Thus, Alce Nero pioneered the organic revolution, by combining old farming methods with the most advanced research on health and the environment.
Today, the techniques have evolved, but our seal of quality is still based on the simple ingredients that Alce Nero was created from: love of the food, respect of the environment, and banning of synthetic chemical substances.
• Leaders of organic farming and Fairtrade sourcing in Italy
Today, Alce Nero is a leading brand. For more than 30 years, it has been synonymous of good, safe, fair and sustainable produce. On top of its constantly growing range of organic Italian food, Alce Nero now includes an array of Fairtrade products from all over the world.
Because our producers are involved in all stages of manufacture, we can enforce respect of our principles throughout the entire production process and accurately trace back our food to its origins. Thus, we can guarantee high quality, 100% organic, authentically Italian products brought straight from our fields to your plate.
Alce Nero is not only the leading organic brand in Italy, but also becoming a trademark world-wide. Our goal is to keep growing, to disseminate and nurture a passion for ever-increasing quality, sustainable agriculture, and an environment that continues to be rich and diverse.
"You don’t eat it because it’s organic. Rather you eat it because it’s delicious - and it happens to be organic”.
