FROM THE FATHER'S EXPERIENCE
TO THE PASSION… FOR SALTED COD

The company has been a leader in the salted cod sector since 1903 thanks to the passion for their work, a passion that binds effort to results and having successfully handed down their experience.
Foods import dei fratelli Monti - which today is based in Corropoli in Val Vibrata - was founded in 1903 by Alceste Monti and established itself on the market distinguishing itself for the quality and reliability of its products.
Alceste Monti, pioneer of a product that has become history, has well thought that the development of a company with industrial connotations for a product that still today has purely artisan characteristics, was the way to leave a healthy, important and renowned company to his family.
His passion and dedication to work conceal a great enthusiasm for sharing knowledge and a great love for travel, such as to be able to unite two distant worlds at that time, Norway and Italy. The first major commercialization of the Norwegian Monti salted cod was born.
The ability of this product to be preserved, because in salt, has earned it the reputation of the “fish of poor people”, who ate it at all times of the year regardless of the fishing seasons.

FROM DRY TO SOAKED READY TO COOK

Today the salted cod is available to everyone and is the fish / product with a history of excellence, with recipes that have been handed down for generations and always new recipes, with a strong and unique flavor easily distinguishable from everything else (and exactly for this land of conquest of catering). The company's flagship product is the soaked cod ready to cook, cold pasteurized under high pressure HPP and the frozen soaked cod, whose only preservative is cold. Monti's entrepreneurial ability was to know how to recognize the right moment to affirm a product, the soaked cod, which was now felt the need. The soaking of cod, which until a few years ago had made it difficult to use, is now the leading production with 5 tanks of water at a controlled temperature of 1 ° C. A precise process that keeps the characteristics of the cod unchanged but desalted it gently until you get the soaked cod ready to cook MONTI.

tomorrow
MONTI REGIONAL RECIPES

A very interesting scenario is emerging in the current commercial landscape: ready meals win over products with considerable cooking difficulties. Although Monti soaked cod is a very easy product to cook, probably due to its traditional heritage, it is also considered as a ready-made product. From the market survey we are facing, it can be seen that regional dishes, therefore the more complex ones, would have a large space in the kitchens of Italians. Our step for the future is already at work.

THE FIRST COD SUPPLY CHAIN

There has always been a combination of Monti and Norway, since Alceste Monti's first steps. Now, thanks to the obstinacy of the Monti players and the entrepreneurial openness of Jangaard, this combination has become the first certified salted cod chain. The caught cod is processed and made salted cod by the Jangaard company, which has also been on the market for 90 years, and sent to the Monti company, which processes and soaks it, making it ready to be cooked. A short and certified supply chain that guarantees the highest quality and traceability for Monti soaked cod.
