The beginning of our story is linked to the artisan tradition of our local area, and was mainly focused on the production of nougat and almond paste, which are among the Calabrian specialities (known with the quality brand “Spe.cal”, meaning Calabrian specialities).
In the 90s, the company, under the guidance of Sebastiano Polimeni, began to deal with large retailers by redefining the concept of product seasonality based on the needs of families and a constantly changing market. Since 2003, the year of the market launch of the first almond milk (the current “Mand’Or” line), the processing of nuts and other almond-derived products has been performed following the company’s distinctive values.
Thus, Policom has become one of the reference points in the development of almond-based products. Since 2014, also thanks to the family second generation joining the company, the offer has been structured organically, taking advantage of the numerous opportunities offered by the sector international market.
We have always put consumer health and respect for the environment first.
For this reason, we carefully choose raw materials, respecting the natural growing cycles. Moreover, recent international studies have shown how the plant-based market is not just a “trend” but represents a decisive turning point in the sustainable management of resources.
Therefore, as we believe in a healthy diet based on environmental sustainability, we created an integrated and controlled production chain, from the selection of raw materials to production and packaging.
Our aseptic packaging is renewable, mainly being composed of materials from renewable sources.
Product certifications refer to the control of the supply chain, origins and food safety.
The Organic Certification establishes compliance with the principles of organic production, that is, without the use of synthetic chemicals (fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, pesticides) and genetically modified organisms (GMOs).
Religious food certifications (KOSHER for the Jewish markets and HALAL for the Muslim ones) relate to the respect of some particular product characteristics. Finally, company food certifications (IFS and BRC) relate to all company’s and stakeholders’ processes.
