"Due to uncertainty related to the epidemiological situation, the markets have slowed down and are waiting for a recovery in consumption and of consumers' purchasing power. Foreign markets are doing well, since they appreciate the certified quality of raw materials produced and processed in Italy. A good quality/price ratio and respect for social and environmental sustainability throughout the production chain are among the major advantages".
Industrie Montali is an Italian historical company with over 100 years of activity that has been able to meet the needs of consumers during the generational change, foreseeing the trend in lifestyle and food consumption over the last twenty years. The initial mission of the Montali family has expanded from the processing of tomato sauce to the production of ready-made sauces in single-portion sachets and patés, offered in tubes, thus creating a wide range of easy-to-use products.
Among the novelties implemented by Industrie Montali in December 2021, there is the conversion of the company into a Benefit Society, thereby supporting profit goals with the pursuit of activities oriented towards the collective wellbeing.
"We are pleased to inform you that after many charitable donations since its foundation, the company has become a benefit society in December 2021, thus establishing a set of projects aimed at benefiting the territory, environmental sustainability and the local community in which it operates and where it carries out its production activities. After a careful evaluation, we considered this choice as an ethical duty towards the territory and the community. We intend to do our part to contribute responsibly to the resolution of the most urgent social and environmental challenges of our time".
On the commercial front, the company is focused on promoting the the two new lines launched at the end of 2021. The Chef Line, which consists of a dense paste in a tube with a high concentration of raw materials, in the following flavors: onion, capers, garlic, soffritto and double tomato paste. It is a tasty and original proposal both for its packaging and its recipe, available in a practical 90-gram tube.

The aluminium laminated bag can be opened by tearing it and poured without the need to be heated or to use cutlery; it also contains the right portion of product, thus combating food waste.
