Home > Company > History and offices


CASTELFRIGO was established in 1983 as a small artisan firm by Severino Ciriesi. He was joined later by his sons who now are the ones running the business. From the very beginning the firm specialized in the cutting of raw pig meat, mainly thin flank and throat.

officiesFrom those early stages the Company has developed from a family run concern into a fully fledged industry but without loosing its “artisan” character which represents the greatest single asset of the Company. It is thanks to this character that the Company can capitalise on the positive response of the markets to the products it offers..

The growth of the firm received an objective acknowledgement in 1995 when it was officially recognized as one of the best European companies for development and entrepreneurship.

Today CASTELFRIGO has premises that covering a surface of 15,000 square meters extending over an area of about 25,000 square meters and employs a workforce of about 100 units.
