The history of Caffè Camardo spans four generations and began when Bartolomeo Camardo, during a trip to South America, learned the secrets of coffee growing. The first coffee roasting plant was opened in 1951 and today it covers an area of 20,000 square metres at the Campobasso plant in Molise. It was Bartolomeo Camardo who inaugurated the tradition, successfully carried on by his sons Felice and Giuseppe.
The entire production chain is followed with dedication, from slow roasting to skilful mixing, up to packaging. The individual coffees that make up the blend come from the world’s major producing countries.
The range of products is divided into the following lines: Ho.Re.Ca., Retail, Compatible pods and capsules, Camardo System, Gourmet products. Particular attention has always been paid to the Ho.Re.Ca. sector, to which training at the Academia Master Baristi® is dedicated.
With an eye on innovation, the recent successes of the Baya Roja® projects – selected Arabica varieties of excellence from the best coffee and organic coffee growers in the world – are pleasant and concrete evidence of a job backed by experience and quality.
Tradition, passion, excellence, respect, human relations: these are the values in which the company believes and which it transmits in its daily work. All this is contained in every cup of Caffè Camardo.
the dream of a collaborative and excellent milk supply chain took on concrete shape 60 years ago, with the establishment of the business concern which was to become Granlatte, Italy’s largest milk producer cooperative. It was this which, thanks to a process of growth and acquisitions, gave rise to the Granarolo Group and to the quality which distinguishes it. Today, the company represents Italy’s major milk production chain and the only one based on an integrated production system, where the entire process is controlled and managed in close collaboration with the best local producers. Together with them, the Granarolo Group follows all the process phases: from the production of the raw material to the distribution of the finished product at sales points, so as to ensure targeted, programmed and quality-oriented production.

The history of Gruppo Caffo 1915 goes back over a century and is based on passion, competence and values that have remained unchanged to this day. The Group markets over 50 products – including Il Vecchio Amaro del Capo, a reference product and the most loved by Italians with a more than 30% market share at large-scale distribution level – all of which made
with the best and strictly natural ingredients, to offer consumers the best of traditional Italian liqueurs using local raw materials from Calabria and other Italian regions. Combining experience and innovation, the activity of Distilleria F.lli Caffo, the first and historic brand of the Group, has grown rapidly in recent years and is now the focus of a modern group, one of the most important in the field of spirits with branches abroad, in Germany and in the U.S.A. In recent years, the company has grown, choosing to invest in new acquisitions: some of the most prestigious brands and historic distilleries to protect the excellence of Italian liqueur production and preserve its quality and traditional processing systems. The first to join the Group was Distilleria Friulia (formerly Distilleria Durbino and Grappa del Doge), followed by Borsci, the historic producer of Elisir Borsci San Marzano, established in 1840, and the oldest liqueur of southern Italy still on the market; Amaro S. Maria al Monte, and Limoncino di Portofino. Recently, the historic Mangilli – Cantine e Distillerie Friulane – was acquired, famous for its assortment of fine grappa and Friuli wines, including two Prosecco DOCs in the extra dry and brut versions. The Group is thus present in a new “spirits and beverages” market segment in a particularly positive historical phase, completing its range with a product relating to aperitifs and mixology, launched on both the Italian and international markets. In addition, the Group has established the Calabräu Brewery in Vibo Valentia, dedicated to the production of award-winning craft beers.
