Bacco is an artisan company of pistachio production and transformation, born out of Claudio Luca’s business venture. The production model is based on the control of the whole chain, from harvesting to storage, up to processing and to the finished product, and on the extraordinary quality of the raw material combined with processing techniques that, though still traditional, combine the mastery of craftsmanship with the use of perfected machinery. Respect of tradition and technological development are an inseparable binomial of our business logic.
Bacco, in its production uses only the best pistachio, starts from traditional processes of preparation (from processed pistachio to half-processed pistachio, from pistachio cakes to liquor, from nougat to pistachio flour, from brittle to pistachio grains) to extend to other kinds of production, which are born out of an accurate study of compatibility between pistachio characteristics and eating habits in consumers, who mostly care not only to what is good in products, to taste and flavour (pistachio-based products are rich in vitamins, mineral nutrients, fibres and essential fatty acids) but also to the customs of a healthy diet.
Pistachio shows all these qualities: good, healthy, genuine, without the addition of preservatives or of animal fats, of certified origin thanks to the acknowledgement of the PDO symbol. Our company is certified as well: because it is authorised to insert the caption “Pistacchio Verde di Bronte DOP” in its labels (Claudio Luca was founding member of the council “Consorzio di tutela del Pistacchio Verde di Bronte DOP, formed on 3rd November 2004 and recognised by the Ministero delle politiche agricole e forestali with a March 2004 ministerial decree, published on the Gazzetta Ufficiale on 8th October 2001). Hence the lines of pistachio-based spreadable creams are born (30% and 40% pistachio), to which the tre ingrendienti, a three-ingrendient cream (50% pistachio, Etna Nocellara oil and sugar) has been lastly added, without the addition of fats, by-products, GMOs, palm oil, as another confirmation of the constant care of our company in the research on the raw material and on the product, to get to the most renowned products, now present in the large-scale distribution: from the award winning PanBacco (panettone filled with 200 grams of 40% pistachio cream), to the colomba pasquale (“Easter dove”), from pistachio chocolate to the pistachio Easter egg.
When in our labels we write “Made in Sicily”, this is the proud of people who have made a pact with their clients, committed to give only Sicilian quality with a maximum degree of transparency.
