Our Company, Artigiana Genovese srl, is specialized in the production of "Pesto Genovese" and other typical sauces of the Liguria region. We are based in Genova Pra, the “cradle” of Pesto and Genovese Basil DOP.
We are a family owned company, founded in 1998 by the wish of our father Aldo Amadori, who was a gourmet. We bring the same pride and the same passion into every product today, as we have done over the last 20 years.
Thanks to the territoriality, the qualified staff, the careful selection of raw materials and the constant attention throughout the whole process, we are able to guarantee high quality products.
We are very sensitive to food allergies and therefore all our products are GLUTEN FREE. Moreover to meet the needs of every consumer our range also offers vegetarian and vegan products.
We have always paid close attention to the ORGANIC world, we have been certified by ICEA since 2003.
We are an environmentally friendly Company, basing our manufacturing process on sustainable CO2 free and renewable energy.
Our "Pesto Genovese", is produced according to the specifications of the Pesto Genovese Consortium, whose sole objective is to safeguard and promote the authenticity of this ancient recipe. In 2005 the European Community granted the status of Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) to the Genovese Basil, grown exclusively in Liguria. The Genovese Basil DOP is famous for its delicate and unique aroma and intense flavour and it is the main ingredient of our Pesto.
Year by year our company grows and our Pesto Genovese received broader recognition for its exceptional quality. Our shelf-stable Pesto is raw (not pasteurized) so it keeps the bright green color, the typical aroma of freshly picked Genovese Basil and the freshness of all ingredients like the Pesto just crushed in the mortar.
Our modern and functional facilities allow us to combine a good production capacity with maximum flexibility. Being a producer allows us to take care of all aspects of our work every day, from the selection of the best raw materials to the strict observance of each stage of the preparation, and to customize the products according to the specific needs of our customers and, if necessary, to create ad hoc recipes. Currently we distribute our products in both domestic and international markets, with our brands as well as private labels.
Our company is very attentive to technological innovations and food safety standards. We have adopted the HACCP self-control system to guarantee the quality and safety of our production. We are also certified by IFS and BRC and this reflects our commitment to food hygiene, traceability and quality.
Moreover our factory is registered at FDA Food Facility and most of our products have the FDA FCE-SID registration certificates.
