From Fontaneto in Fontaneto
NOT SO LONG AGO
Our entrepreneurial adventure first began
In August 1988, the Fontaneto family began its entrepreneurial journey and founded Fontaneto S.r.l. in Cavaglio d’Agogna; a small commune in the province of Novara, Italy.
Moved to a new, more modern factory
By dint of the company’s unwavering commitment and high-quality products, it expanded rapidly and in 1994, moved to a new, more modern production facility in Fontaneto d’Agogna (NO). The 7,000 m2 roofed premises covered a total surface area of 25,000 m2
We became one of the first Italian companies to invest in traceability
Traceability is an essential component of our transparency because it ensures the quality, safety and efficiency of our products. For this reason, we were one of the first Italy-based companies to invest in traceability software.
A new sustainable path was followed
The entire roof of the pasta factory was installed with solar panels, becoming the first company in the province of Novara to implement such a large photovoltaic system. We currently self-generate 25% of our own energy needs.
BRC & IFS certifications The safety of a large-scale industry is guaranteed
Fontaneto obtained the prestigious IFS (International Food Standard) and BRC (British Retail Consortium) certifications which attest to the key food safety goals achieved along the entire supply chain, such as raw material quality, employee well-being and factory cleanliness.

The new Fontaneto generation joined the company
Alessio paved the way, followed by Eleonora, after studying and training both in Italy and abroad. Both chose to follow in their family’s footsteps and work at Fontaneto.
A fresh pasta reference point
After 35 years in business, Fontaneto has established itself as a reference point in the fresh pasta sector. This constantly evolving company has never lost sight of its values and roots, thereby keeping its commitment to quality and authentic taste intact.
