Callipo, a century of history

Giacinto Callipo established our company back in 1913, in Pizzo (VV), a beautiful city located in Calabria and historically known for tuna fishing and tonnare.

Our company was the first in Calabria, and one of the first enterprises in Italy, to tin the precious Tuna of the Mediterranean. Since its establishment, “quality first” is the mission that Callipo set out to pursue: in fact, in 1926 Callipo was awarded the License of “Official Supplier” by the Royal Household (Real Casa).

After 106 years Callipo has never wavered from that principle: a “way of being” which our business continuously hinge upon, well aware that it represents the secret of success

ITALIAN QUALITY

For 106 years, we have been processing our products esclusively in Calabria, Italy, and carrying out some stages by hand, as in the past.

As a result, we ensure traceability of the food chain and specialised manpower, preserving a century-long tradition.

For 106 years, all processing stages of our products have been carried out in Calabria. We firmly line up against relocation, in order to guarantee our Made in Italy quality.

Actually, the secret of our quality is processing, as the result of a balanced combination between tradition, technology and a special care for the entire productive process,
from the raw material selection to products maturation up to marketing.

Traceability

Our philosophy is based on the values of Quality and Transparency, simple ingredients with which we try to satisfy, defend, and respect our customers’ demands. The manufacturing of our products is carried out in Italy, in the premises located in Maierato (VV) Calabria, where the processing of tuna is made according to a 106 year tradition. Still nowadays some formats such as Tuna fillets are manufactured by hand by our female workers in full compliance with the strictest food safety measures.

In order to grant our customers the utmost transparency on our products and on the origin of the raw materials used, our company has been endowed with a traceability system giving the following set of information:
