An Italian market leader company in starch derivatives production.
The story of a family business
Sacchetto is an Italian family-run company, producing starches, alcohol and proteins from wheat and rice derivatives since 1946. It is a leader in the home market, and boasts an increasing presence abroad.
Our head office is located in a land of thriving businesses and stunning landscapes: in Lagnasco, in the province of Cuneo, in the Italian region of Piedmont. From here, every morning you can watch the magnificent Monviso mountain tower above everything, surrounded by wheat fields, fruit orchards, and hilly vineyards declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The company is run by the founder’s sons Giuliano and Giuseppe Sacchetto, together with grandsons Paolo, Alberto and Federico.
Investments in engineering, research and development, and the creation of cutting-edge production plants have always been the company’s driving force.
The company has been shaped around one other fundamental asset: corporate welfare. Sharing with employees and partners our love and passion for what we do produces a virtuous circle, ensuring the highest levels of quality and efficiency, and the wellbeing of those who proudly call Sacchetto’s their workplace.
What we do
We transform wheat and rice into a wide range of products that are then sold as high-quality ingredients for the food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, chemical and paper industries.
Premium quality of products, steadfast commitment to research and development, and special attention to safety and the environment make Sacchetto a market leader at home and abroad.
Despite its fast and solid growth, the company has always maintained strong ties with its roots in the region, preserving the family’s background and ethical values.
Sacchetto’s products are made only with mechanical-action equipment and potable water, powered by our cogeneration plants.
Quality, respect for the environment, endless improvement of safety, and hygienic working processes are the core values that underpin the development and growth of the company. That is why we have dedicated a whole unit to their continuous monitoring: the Quality, Safety and Environment Department is the internal reference point for all procedures, be they information or documents.
We are committed to responsible management of energy, fully respecting the environment and the ecosystem, through an effective management system and energy efficiency.
