Roots set in the past and sights set on the future
“Life has taught us that the family is “important” and when love, respect and solidarity exist in the family, everyone’s energies are multiplied and can become creative,productive and positive for the company.
Because the biggest satisfactions are the ones we share.”
Gruppo Carli is a family-run business farming, processing and selling quality forage since 1960.
Alfalfa and forage, in different formats and consistencies, are the essential nutritional basis for all ruminants (cattle, buffalo, sheep and goats) and herbivores (horses, camels and rabbits).
Gruppo Carli forage is all grown and processed in Italy, without the use of irrigation, chemical additives or synthetic substances at any stage of production, to guarantee a natural, healthy and sustainable feed.
Today, Gruppo Carli is the leader in the production of alfalfa and dehydrated fodder in Italy: the annual production capacity is around 500,000 MT of product over 5 plants located in Emilia Romagna and Lazio regions.
Our company was created from the passion and intuition of three brothers, and today it is run by the second and third generation of the Carli family. The entire Group is run as one big family, including employees, suppliers and customers.
Everyone's individuality is represented in the Carli Group and the meeting of diversities generates energies that, multiplied by comparison and sharing, bring innovation, productivity and wellbeing to the community.
Care for the earth and nature is the basis of our work, it characterises every production process and guides our business decisions. Caring for products is a guarantee of respect for users, just as caring for personal needs and providing a safe working environment reflects consideration for employees. Last but not least, honesty, transparency and fairness indicate deep respect for our many suppliers.
We choose to sustainably grow fodder and cereals only in Italy, taking care of every production step, from sowing to delivery of the finished product, offering certified quality.
We grow healthy and nutritious fodder and cereals to meet the different nutritional and welfare needs of animals, offering 100% Italian quality for sustainable animal husbandry.
We relentlessly pursue the efficiency of agricultural practices and production processes.
Respect for nature, technological innovation, employee training, and a safe working environment are the principles that drive our business activities, from which we develop an ever-increasing range of quality products to support the world's food supply chain.
We aim to preserve the land, cultivate the fields and transform alfalfa, fodder and cereals into high quality and reliable food for animal husbandry. In doing so, we contribute to food security and realise the idea of sustainable agriculture.
CARLI: A FAMILY, A HISTORY
In the Sixties, the brothers Andrea, Ernesto and Alfredo set up a family-run fodder pressing and milling business.
The tradition of a noble and ancient profession like farming was completed by a desire to grow and innovate on the part of a particularly receptive second generation.
Today, the Group companies are run by members of the three generations of the Carli family: the diverse experiences and aptitudes are an irreplaceable resource that enhances the Group and makes it one of a kind.
Gruppo Carli consists of 20 well organized companies with as their core business the production of animal feed.
The Group’s pyramid structure comprises crop-growing and animal-raising farms, raw-material processing plants, trading companies operating at national and international level, logistic, technical and administrative service companies, and the management of plants for the production of renewable energies.
