If you don’t know Latin, this company’s name could sound a bit obscure. However, Coelsanus means “clean and healthy sky,” like the sky of the company’s native Vicenza, not too far from Venice. Thanks to unusual air circulation, in this part of the Veneto region (Northeast Italy), the sky is not afflicted by the industrial haze of the Po valley, creating a microclimate that enriches the flavors of the products of the land.
ESTABLISHED IN THE FIFTIES
In 1955, Coelsanus opens for business, mass producing canned vegetables. Three years later, the company evolved its packaging from metal to glass jars with twist-off caps. However, it would take more than 20 years, for the company to undertake its first export activities in 1990.
PRODUCTS: A TREASURE INSIDE EACH JAR
A few of Coelsanus’ exceptional products make the brand particularly stand out among competitors: grilled vegetable in jars (olives, artichokes, peppers, mushrooms, onions) and pestos, such as traditional Genovese, spicy pesto, pesto with ricotta, and pumpkin pesto. They also produce olives, prepared in many different ways to satisfy every customer. If you are a fan of pasta or risotto, Coelsanus also offers many types of sauces and condiments: caper and pepper, artichoke and olive, tomato and olive, mushroom and turmeric, dried tomato, almond, and walnut. In the summer, try their amazing rice salad condiment.
COELSANUS MEANS QUALITY AND ENVIRONMENT
International certifications attest to Coelsanus’ fulfillment of its environmental goals. The company, as the name shows, is committed to preserving nature. They have worked to reduce their factories’ carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by installing a modern, combined heat and power system that reuses waste fumes and water to produce electricity. With this technology, the company produces 80% of its net electricity need, significantly reducing their environmental impact. Coelsanus believes that “a passion for excellence and quality, together with the transparency of conduct, are the foundation for the loyalty between us and our employees, our consumers, our clients, and our supplier. They know that we are working in a beloved respected land.”
