About Artigiana Genovese
Artigiana Genovese is a family-owned business specialising in the production of traditional, organic Pesto alla Genovese in Genoa, Italy, from where pesto originates.
The company was founded in 1998 by Aldo Amadori and has been passed down to the Amadori brothers, who continue to bring the same pride and passion to every product.
In 2005, the European Community granted the status of Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) to Genovese Basil, grown exclusively in Liguria. The Genovese basil PDO is famous for its delicate and unique aroma and intense flavour and is the main ingredient of Artigiana Genovese’s pesto.
The organic Genovese basil is picked once per year, in June or July, and then preserved in extra virgin olive oil and salt. By skilfully measuring and pounding the ingredients and, most important, by keeping strict control of the water activity, Artigiana Genovese does not need to pasteurise its Pesto alla Genovese. The result is an exquisite sauce that can be used with pasta, appetizers and pizza.
Year on year, the company’s Pesto Genovese has achieved widespread distinction for its exceptional quality. Artigiana Genovese offers other sauces, such as a unique vegan pesto made with tofu, a red pesto with sundried tomatoes and an olive paste.
