Lauretana mineral water has got a beautiful story.
The source was discovered more than half a century ago by Teresio Rossello while he was walking in the mountains.
The first plant was built at about 850 metres of altitude close to the source, from which the water was piped directly for spontaneous fall through stainless steel pipelines.
The activity of bottling started in 1965 and the water merchandised was named Lauretana.
With Antonio Pola , CEO, and the President of the Company Giovanni Vietti , “ the blue gold” from Biella was able to seduce the whole world : Europe, United States,Australia, China, Japan , Russia , where Lauretana – still, sparkling or mild – can be found in the best restaurants. A simple product, but of great value, , with an unaltered and unalterable taste , pure and uncontaminated as it springs from the source.
Lauretana water springs in a pristine and wild ground at more than 1000 metres above sea level, in the North of Piedmont, surrounded by Biella Alps, a natural environment, protected and unpolluted, far from industrial and agricultural sites. It comes from the hydrogeological area of Monte Rosa glacier, that with its 4.600 metres overlooks the border between Italy and Switzerland: the mineral water flows deep, keeping unaltered all its organoleptic qualities and without running any risk of contamination.
This is merit of the bed of the path composed of granite, a crystalline rock of a very ancient geological composition : it filters and protects the mineral water from impurities, it keeps it microbiologically pure and it releases a low percentage of minerals: that is the reason why Lauretana is the lightest water in Europe.
The source springs directly on the surface, it freely flows and it is bottled thanks to the natural gravity, not to alter or destroy its vital molecules.

The one and only
Parmigiano-Reggiano is one of the oldest and richest cheeses in the world. This cheese is essentially produced like nine centuries ago: using the same ingredients (milk, salt and rennet), with the same craftsmanship and production technique that has undergone very few changes over the centuries, thanks to the decision to keep a fully natural production, without the use of additives. Its production is governed by strict Specifications, registered with the European Union, because Parmigiano Reggiano is a cheese with Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), i.e. a product that, based on its distinctive characteristics and its tie to the area of origin, is safeguarded by a system provided by the EU to protect consumers and producers alike. To bear the designation “Parmigiano Reggiano PDO”, the cheese has to be made respecting strict rules. First of all, it has to be produced in the Area of origin (which includes the provinces of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Mantua to the right of the Po river, and Bologna to the left of the Reno River – a surface of approximately 10,000 km2). The production of cow’s milk, the processing into cheese, the maturation until a minimum age of 12 months, the packaging and the grating of Parmigiano Reggiano PDO has to take place exclusively in the area of origin. Therefore, it is not possible to make Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese with milk produced outside this area or coming from abroad. Furthermore, Parmigiano Reggiano has to be made using artisan and natural methods that are established in the Product Regulation and in the strict Specifications, which set forth specific production procedures (Production Standard), a special diet for cows (Feeding Regulation for Dairy Cattle), rules for using the hot-iron mark (Marking Regulation). And thus the use of any additives in the production of Parmigiano Reggiano is absolutely forbidden.
Good for taste and health.
Its numerous properties are all linked to the intrinsic product quality: digestibility, high calcium content present in a bioavailable form, absence of additives and preservatives, source of minerals, organoleptic pleasantness and liking. Due to these characteristics, Parmigiano Reggiano is a fundamental food in the daily diet of everyone, from children to elderly people, including athletes who find in Parmigiano Reggiano a fully natural energy charge. Thanks to its production process, the King of Cheeses is also naturally lactose free already 48 hours from production since all its sugar (lactose) is transformed into lactic acid by lactic bacteria.
