Tradition and history are the keywords of Nuova Castelli, which has been in business since 1892 in the dairy industry and is the leader in Parmigiano Reggiano export. In time, the company headquartered in Reggio Emilia has grown to include 17 facilities in Italy, Hungary, Poland, and the United States among production, maturing, and packaging sites. On top of these, there are many distribution platforms, including eleven branches in Europe and the United States. With a turnover of over 500 million euro and more than 1,000 employees, the Castelli Group is one of the most important companies in the production and distribution of PDO and typical Italian cheeses, thanks to brands such as Castelli, Alival, Di Vittorio, Mandara, Fattorie del Sole and Agrisole.

The range includes authentic specialties such as Parmigiano Reggiano PDO (105 thousand wheels produced a year), Grana Padano PDO, Gorgonzola PDO, Taleggio PDO, Mozzarella di Bufala Campana PDO, Pecorino Toscano PDO, and Mozzarella TSG.
