RESPECT

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.

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.
