three generations entrepreneurs in dairying, Pietrafesas have always given a
very personal mark to the dairy management, putting together tradition and
innovation at best. Moreover they promote the "cow-buffalo culture" through the
association "Galaxia - via lattea".
Battipaglia has been an agricultural colony since the half of the 19th century.
It represents the most shining example of how man's ability and hard work can
make a soil fertile.
Thanks to the local farmers' activity, Plain of Sele changed from a malarial
area into one of the most fertile and industrious area of the South Italy.
Here Pietrafesas, entrepreneurs in dairying since three generations, have
taken their roots. They are one of the first families which had the intuition
to change the nomad cheese process of manifacture, which was made following the
herds, into the stabile one. This change has brought considerable advantages both
in the hygienic conditions and in the work organization.
In 1976 Nicola Pietrafesa established, following his father's advice and
projecting his ideas in the future, the "Latticini Salernitani Ltd". It is a
factory which has ever operated putting together old traditions and modern
technologies at best.
Year by year, passion and experience has led the "Latticini Salernitani Ltd"
to choose suppliers who are careful with the feeding and the environment
conditions where cow-buffalos are bred.
Infact in 1993 they received the DOP trade-mark for Campania cow-buffalo mozzarella.
The "Latticini Salernitani Ltd" distinguishes itself among the local dairy
production because it has got a large range of products obtained from
cow-buffalo milk. Infact, besides the well-known cheese of cow-buffalo
production, there are: ricotta, caciotta, scamorza, burrata caciocavallo,
cascinello, burrino, cacetti, provolone, dessert cream, bocconcini with cream.
All these products bear under the trade-mark "La Cascina".
These cheeses are delivered outside of GDO (large organized delivery) because
cow-buffalo milk products need a particular care, according to the different
climatic periods. You can find our products both in the Italian restaurants
and in the International ones, as well in the best gastronomy of our country.
Care and love for the soil and its products are handed on from generation to
generation by Pietrafesas. They start from the care in the productive process
and the respect for their own human resources and for the consumer, until
the creation and the support of an active cultural association. The name of
this association is "Galaxia - via lattea", whose president and promoter is
Nicola Pietrafesa. Thanks to this association young people of our territory
can learn historical, anthropological and economic values, connected with the
dairying of the Plain of Sele and old crafts like the dairy man and the breeder.
This is possible through different cultural ways, such as visit to the
dairy-farms, competition, performances, and so on.
With love and passion Pietrafesas do this hard but also exciting work that
day by day gives to "Latticini Salernitani Ltd" <>, as our business slogan says.
