The Life Trail approach
LIFE TRAIL is a path that Montebianco undertakes to guarantee its customers and consumers a clear Food Policy based on mutual trust. It is devoted to the continued research of pure ingredients in line with proper nutrition. LIFE TRAIL is an ambitious project, which presents Montebianco with some choices that sometimes contrast with industrial logic, but allow it in the future to constantly ensure the best possible ingredient solutions according to historical need. Montebianco has been eliminating artificial flavours from its products, replacing hydrogenated fats with refined fats and insisting on full traceability of some noble raw materials, to ensure the highest chain quality standards.

Discover three exceptional products with Almond Paste with a fine delicate taste for a high quality gelato, Hazelnut pure PGI Piedmont paste and Pistachio 100% Bronte PDO Paste, the Italian queen of excellence and Montebianco’s flagship.
Bronte Green Pistachios are unusual because of its pulp’s uniform bright green colour and its pronounced aroma. It is favoured for the manufacture of nougat, confectionery products and ice cream. The harvest of these valuable pistachios takes place from the first week of September every two years. The Ministry of Agricultural Food and Forestry granted Montebianco permission to use PDO identification, having checked its authenticity.
This is an extremely important and exclusive recognition, since the Bronte's Green Pistachio represents only 1% of the world production.
The Protected Designation of Origin (DOP) covers an area between 300 and 900 metres above sea level, which includes Bronte, Adrano and Biancavilla.
