Our history begins in 1971 with Gino Girolomoni, young Mayor of the municipality of Isola del Piano, who starts promoting initiatives aimed at exploiting and supporting ancient farming culture. These first experiences are the founding blocks for the birth, on July 13 1977, of the Agricultural Co-op Alce Nero, whose brand is sold some 25 years later becoming Montebello®. Following the death of its founder in March 2012, the Mutual Company changes its name to Gino Girolomoni Agricultural Co-op.
With its thirty shareholders and fifty employees and with its more than 11,5 million euros of turnover (in 2016), the Mutual Company Gino Girolomoni has substantially contributed to develop organic farming in Italy.
Our core business is the production of organic pasta which is made in our pasta factory that produces exclusively certified organic pasta. Prime raw materials of Italian origin, water from a spring with no industrial agriculture upstream and a slow and patient drying process are the key ingredients.
