About Rigoni di Asiago
One of the first companies in Italy to adopt organic farming, Rigoni di Asiago is a leader in organic spreads. Its three main brands, Mielbio, Fiordifrutta and Nocciolata, are designed to be flavoursome, healthy and eco-friendly.
A leader in Italy’s organic food movement, the company also cares about people and nature, throughout farming, processing and marketing. It provides favourable working conditions, and uses recycling and renewable energy in its operations to reduce its environmental impact.
The story of Rigoni Di Asiago began about 100 years ago, when Rigoni grandmother Nonna Elisa started beekeeping in the Altopiano di Asiago, a mountain plateau in north Italy. Word soon spread that her honey was the best in the area and, by the 1930s, Apicoltura Rigoni was a household name in Italy.
The company became the first to introduce mono-floral honey to the Italian market and to adopt organic methods, changing to its name of today, Rigoni di Asiago. All raw materials are sourced from regions where soil is constantly monitored to guarantee no contamination from harmful chemicals or other pollutants.
Rigoni di Asiago is committed to offering quality ingredients and genuine flavours. Ripe fruit is selected, washed and frozen within hours of being harvested. Low-temperature processing methods preserve nutritional qualities of the basic ingredients as much as possible. An in-house lab runs quality checks at each stage of production from cultivation to packaging.
The leading brand of organic honey in Italy, Mielbio is the result of know-how passed down in the Rigoni family since 1923. It comes from only selected Italian beehives, and is a natural food par excellence.
The low temperature process patented by Rigoni di Asiago enables vitamins, minerals, enzymes and organic acids naturally present in the honey to remain intact, as well as its natural anti-bacterial and antibiotic properties. Thanks to this process, Rigoni di Asiago Honey is defined as raw.
Honey also comes from Rigoni di Asiago’s trusted beekeeper partners. Located in protected and unpolluted areas in several Italian regions, the beehives are checked regularly to guarantee a flawless organic quality. They do not undergo any chemical treatment. As a result, bees are able to develop in a healthy environment covering several kilometres.
In-house inspections are carried out throughout the manufacturing process, while an independent and authorised certification organisation not only checks the honey but also the quality of the entire process, from production locations to storage facilities for the finished product.
