30 Years of Quality

Image

Sestafoglia is the brand with which Primafonte Srl produces and markets food products. Born in 2014, after 30 years of experience in the field of aromatic herbs and the manufacturing of semi-finished products for industrial use.
The experience and quality of the tillage have allowed us to make up to six cuts of basil each year, from which “sestafoglia” (literally “sixth leaf”).
After receiving excellent feedback from customers from the qualitative point of view in the manufacture of our semi-finished goods, in 2018 we decided to expand our production capacity by creating the sauces and condiments line with the Sestafoglia brand, and keeping the possibility of working in private label, in order to satisfy all customers’ request.
We are specialized in the processing and the transformation of aromatic plants such as basil, arugula, radicchio, and many others, from which all the recipes of our production come to life.
Our experience and continuous research guarantee the highest quality, stability and flavour of our products, with particular attention to respect our raw materials.

The Company

Raw Materials

Most of the treated products come from our fields were we grow basil, parsley, rocket and sage. The production of basil alone exceeds 1.000 tons.
Growing our raw materials directly means that we can guarantee product traceability and sustainability. Furthermore, we are sure to handle the product on the same day of collection, so as to reserve its organoleptic characteristics.

Semi-Finished Processing

During the manufacturing procedure, especially that of the basil, the temperature control is fundamental. It has to be kept at a temperature between 10° and 20° in order to maintain its characteristic, as the perfumes and the bright green pigmentation, unchanged. All finished products are stored in compliance with the “Cold Line”.

To make this possible in Sestafoglia we have 2 refrigerating rooms of 300 cubic meters each with a temperature between 0° and 4°, and an additional 100 cubic meters cell with a temperature of -18° for the conservation of frozen products.

With the help of our refrigerated vehicles and the support of some selected company, we are able to deliver throughout Italy and abroad quickly and on time.

Laboratory

Using our internal LAB, in Sestafoglia, we regularly execute chemical and microbiological analysis on our raw materials and finished goods in order to guarantee compliance with the highest legal and qualitative requirements.

To guarantee the conformity of our vegetable raw materials, we carry out multi-residual and microbiological analysis before treating; moreover, during the manufacturing process the semi-finished goods are regularly subjected to pH and Aw analysis. The finished product is then scanned by sample by carrying out specific chemical and microbiological analysis

Certifications

in compliance with European regulation 852/04 on the hygiene of food products Sestafoglia adopts a self-control based on the HACCP method, thanks to which it monitors the entire production process, ensuring compliance with hygiene and health requirements at all points. The Company also maintains an efficient product traceability system, compliant with European regulation 178/02.

The company is also certified BIO pursuant to CE regulation 834/2007

In 2020, the company also obtained certifications in compliance with international BRC e IFS Standards.

Products

Semi-Finished

The Company manufactures various types of semi-finished goods, intended for the food processing industries.
In the case of basil, the treating begins in our crops: through an accurate cutting procedure only the most tender part of the plant is selected to be processed. The short distance between our plant and the cultivated fields allows the product to be handled as soon as in is cut, thus avoiding the start of oxidation processes and ensuring its high quality. The continuous studies carried out by the company’s team of food technologists have allowed us to expand the range of products available by introducing the production of new semi-finished goods with the goal of satisfying all request.
All our recipes can be replicated with organic certification.
