Make the traditional Italian products, characterised by innovative taste and excellent quality,available anywhere in the world. This is the mission of Ponti, a world leader in the production of vinegar, pickles, vegetable preserves in oil, condiments and ready-made sauces, since 1867.
The Ponti corporate culture is based on taste. Enhancing the taste, within Ponti, means being fully committed to quality, by combining natural ingredients with state-of-the-art production technology. This is the Italian tradition of taste, a living tradition in the Ponti DNA today, just like in the past.
Antonio and his son GUIDO started the production of pickles and vegetable preserves in oil in the factory in Milan. In 1941, during the war, the factory moved to Fara Novarese and thence to Sizzano in 1951.
Cesare and Franco, current Managing Directors and CEOs, started to work with their fatherGuido. With the arrival of the 4th generation, the business was further expanded and the main competitors were taken over. At the same time PONTI also decided to diversify the business and started to produce pickles and vegetable preserves in olive oil in 1939.
Pursuing the decentralization production policy, PONTI inaugurated its second vinegar production site in the Veneto region, near Dosson di Casier (Treviso), thus becoming the leading Italian company in this sector.
Carcioghiotto was launched: fresh, whole artichokes with some rosemary, garlic and hot pepper in sunflower and extra-virgin olive oil. in a few years it has become the top selling artichoke brand in Italy.
Two very successful products were launched: the Apple Vinegar and the rice salad toppings.
An important five-year investment plan was developed and approved; it included the upgrade of the company IT structure and industrial plants and the construction of a modern finished product distribution warehouse in Ghemme. Giacomo, the representative of the Ponti family’s fifth generation, officially joined the company.
Three renewed packaging lines for the vegetable preserves were started in the Ghemme factory. Production increased by 30% to meet the new market and production needs. The plants are the best that the Italian industry can offer in terms of technology, automation and innovation: anthropomorphic robot for pallet forming and dismantling, X rays to check the jar contents, unmanned shuttle-train to handle the finished products pallets are just a few examples.
Ponti acquires Achillea, organic products producer established in 1980 and located at the foot of the Alps near Torino. The peculiarities of the Achillea products are: 100% organic, free of added additives, preserves or antioxidants, all ingredients are ICEA (Ethic and environmental certification institute) certified and come from organic farming or from fruits picked in the wild but still certified, top quality. Main products portfolio: apple vinegars, fruit juices, jams, fruits puree, etc.
Ponti Group has four state-of-the-art production sites in Italy. Technology and automation support the quality: anthropomorphic robot for pallet forming and dismantling, X rays to check the jar contents and unmanned shuttle-trains to handle the finished products pallets.
