STELLA FOODS. Breakfast Italian specialists for more than 30 years
STELLA FOODS’ history is strongly connected to the Italian Organic market. Specialized in production of flaked breakfast cereals, this Family Company is now at its second generation and has widened its offer of basic ranges of cereals and pulses by processing puffed, extruded and pasta-made products too. The aim is to offer both traditional and innovative products to the Italian and Export markets, with re-usable or recyclable packaging and ease of use.
Stella® is the historical brand, launched in the Italian mass market in the 60s’ and well known for offering Flakes and other traditional products, such as Polenta. Today it is the name-brand of the new range “THE BREAKFAST SPECIALISTS” and proposes a range of Organic and Extra Crunchy Flakes: they are one of a kind both forcrunchiness (which stays the same even if they are soaked in hot drinks) and for attention to the packaging which is re-usable and has high service contents (in line with the sustainability topics the Company is always concerned with).
ResNovae® is the new-born brand and represents the spirit of innovation which has always been distinguishing the Company. Through a reworking of simple and natural ingredients, it combines needs and inclinations of the modern consumer with innovative ways of processing: ResNovae® proposes real food, to feed men and earth.
So, new ranges of products were born: I RICCHI (pulses in grains) are easy to cook and ready in 5’; a new way to propose PULSES which makes their use easier and gives suggestion and cues to prepare well-balanced dishes with mixes of pulses, wholegrain cereals and vegetables (WHO asserts we should eat more pulses as they are the richest source of vegetable proteins and fibres). There are then new-concept SNACKS: Nuvole and Ciliegie Croccanti (crunchy extruded and baked snacks) were studied to satisfy the most demanding of palates in terms of taste but with great attention to choose every single ingredient, in order to obtain a fancy snack and offer a moment of relax and pleasure without forgoing the healthy food principles. The single-dose range PHANTASIA is composed of six different oil-seeds, one mix of seeds, one gomasio seasoning and one flaked yeast; it solves the problem of eating more seeds because it makes seeds handy, hygienic, easy and funny to eat and gives the chance to eat them “away” as well.
Stella Foods can also be your partner for PRIVATE LABEL as it can count on a network composed of 6 plants in Piedmont and Tuscany, where the same raw materials (cereals, pulses and seeds) are processed in the following ways:
Three production plants for milling, flaking, puffing, extruding and pasta making – always starting from whole and organic grains.
Three packaging plants, one of which dedicated to GLUTEN FREE products and one of which within the IL RAMO Cooperative (direct issuing of the Community Association Papa Giovanni XXIII), the simplest processing is entrusted to the cooperative, as part of the “Work with the Hearth” social project.
Stella Foods can pack in a protective atmosphere (nitrogen), sizes range from 5 g to 25 kg and packaging supports can be different: STANDARD OR CUSTOMIZED CARDBOARD BOX, JAR, SQUARE-BOTTOM POUCH, SINGLE-DOSE BAG and DOYPACK.
