Our history

Saclà from 1939

Established in Asti in 1923 under the name of SALPA (Stabilimento Astese Lavorazione Prodotti Alimentari) the Company’s aim was to capture the bounty of the fertile region of Piedmont, North West Italy, in which it is still based today, to preserve it through the year for wholesale trade.

testata-storia

In 1939 the corporate name changed to SACLÀ which stands for the “Società Anonima Commercio e Lavorazione Alimentari”. The Company expanded and prospered under the guidance of its founder, Signor Secondo Ercole.   From early beginnings packing vegetables into cans, Saclà extended its range of products and soon flourished as one of Italy’s most progressive food companies.     Today Saclà offers a range of products such as pesto and pasta sauces, antipasti in oil, pickled vegetables and a wide range of olives which are in demand, not only in its domestic market, but the world over. The products are made in Italy using the finest, freshly picked vegetables and traditional recipes, and there is an uncompromising regard for quality. In seventyfive years Saclà has earned a reputation for being at the forefront of authentic Italian fine food. Through a comprehensive program of product and technological development the Company is committed to expanding this further, and with it the renaissance of Italian cuisine.

In over seventyfive years Saclà has earned a reputation for being at the forefront of authentic Italian fine food.

For more than 75 years, my family’s pursuit for crafting the perfect Italian pasta sauces using only Italy’s finest ingredients is what has set the Saclà brand apart. We’ve never wavered on the principles that made us who we are from the very beginning. Today, the Saclà brand continues to transform the sun-ripened Italian cherry tomatoes and vegetables into extraordinary experiences, bite by bite.
At Saclà, we treasure our Italian heritage and make it our mission to bring a taste of Italy to your table. We bring together traditional Italian recipes, fresh Italian ingredients, and a touch of Italian culture in every product.
With Saclà, you can add a little Italianità to any dish.
