150 years of Circular Economy

Caglificio Clerici can be considered an emblem of the circular economy philosophy. This is thanks to the intuition of its founder, Martino Clerici, almost 150 years ago, who wanted to give new value to waste material to make it its own business, producing soap and rennet from slaughter residues.

In the same way, we still recover and enhance by-products, such as the stomachs of slaughtered animals, in a product of quality and added value such as our precious rennet, with strict control of the supply chain.

Tradition and innovation for responsible products

We combine the tradition of our culture and our craftsmanship with technological innovation to guarantee an always better efficiency in the use of resources and an increasingly refined quality of our products, with an expansion of our portfolio, to meet the needs in continuous evolution of our customers and the food industry.

If we want to continue to be a leader and to successfully face the challenges of the global market, we have to pursue the goal of excellence, trying to always meet customer satisfaction, to create an evironment promoting our employees personal fulfilment and to fight for environmental protection. Quality is our belief: our consolidated reliability is based on this. We work with economic sensitivity, respecting legality, the environment, health and safety at work.
