Three Generations Cheesemakers
It all begins thanks to grandfather Angelo Campiotti, born in 1890, in the early 1900s he was a small cheese trader in the Varese area and in Switzerland.
In the 1940s he got in touch with some sellers who pushed him to produce cheese in the province of Pavia and thus began the production of Gorgonzola.
At the end of the 1950s, his son Ermanno, the seventh of ten children, was sent to run a dairy purchased in the province of Brescia where Grana Padano was made. Shortly after, the whole production is transferred to this dairy where Grana Padano DOP is still produced.
Since 2004, the business has been in the hands of Ermanno's children: Vincenzo, Emanuele and Silvia. All the sibilings have dedicated themselves to work and to the company and in 15 years of progress they have come a long way, working a lot with commitment and sacrifice. Consumption, the economy and business have undergone important transformations. Today, the corporate imperative is to provide an answer to the customer that is up to date and with the demands of the modern consumer. The commitment of the family and collaborators is, now as then, aimed at doing well, according to tradition, but with an eye to the future.
"the good cheese is made with good milk"
The milk we use comes from stables located within 20 km of the dairy, two of these stalls have been supplying milk continuously since 1959. We are happy to work in this sector that we believe to be "healthy", a large but small sector in which everyone knows each other and even in times of crisis there is also the awareness of being able to count on the other players in the sector.
Our children are thrilled to come to the dairy and this is a source of pride for the whole family: they are happy to show their peers the concrete production and how the Grana Padano DOP cheese is born.
The photovoltaic plant
Installed 5 years ago, it allows 20% energy autonomy. We are very sensitive to issues concerning energy: from its saving to its use in an ethical and sustainable way. All environments and processes are heated with hot water recovered from production. The water used for washing and intermediate processes is sent to purification only after being reused where possible.
HOW WE WORK
Flexibility and quality for the production of our milk derivatives: quality control of parameters and certifications in full compliance with specifications and deadlines.
Quality, raw material and selection of suppliers
The milk we use comes from "historic" farms, two of which have been supplying us with milk since 1959. To achieve excellence, we focus on quality control and constant support for 'our' farmers.
We are committed to maintaining high standards of efficiency through continuous and real-time monitoring of all stages of processing and the preservation of the organoleptic characteristics of the milk.
We are able to supply milk, butter and cream, in the quantity and timing you need: we have tanks dedicated to the individual customer and a logistic service that has the ability to manage both small and large quantities.
We respond to the needs of large brands with the quality of a large company and the flexibility typical of small businesses. Your need for flexibility is answered by our ability to constantly adapt to your needs.
Timeliness & Efficiency
We know that the efficiency of your production process management depends on the quality of your suppliers' work. Our watchwords are timeliness in responding to your needs and efficiency in finding solutions to critical issues.

For us, responsibility means living the management of the customer's production process as if it were “our thing”. We team up with you to achieve great results.
Specialization. You know your market and your consumers, we know our supply chain and our suppliers. We transform the best raw material into the best finished product. The secret ingredient? A good dose of expertise.
We take from the world to give back to the world. We respect nature because we know it is the most precious source of our health and our lives.
