The story of Dalter is the story of freshly grated cheese and of a long process of innovation to make the Italian dairy tradition famous worldwide.
Since 1978, a long process of innovation
Dalter was founded through the invention of a product, one which it continued to develop by dedicating its time and resources to innovation, achieving a leading position in dairy technology and research. The company’s path has been marked by many product and portion size innovations.
The 2000s were marked by two truly astonishing innovations: the refillable cheese graters which are dishwasher-safe grater comes in a stand-up plastic pack containing two 50g pieces of Parmigiano Reggiano. Over the years, the range has also been expanded by designing and developing tailor made products for major retail brands, international chains of commercial catering and multinational food manufacturing.
Already in 2001 Dalter obtained the Quality certification according to the BCR standards, demonstrating its strong vocation to export. After a few years, the IFS certification and the ICEA certification for organic products will be added, demonstrating the constant attention to quality at 360 °.
Today, Dalter is organised as a real group, operating all throughout Europe with many outlets on international markets. “The DalterFood Group’s mission”, confirms their President, Stefano Ricotti, “goes beyond a purely commercial objective: we intend to be ambassadors for Italian excellence around the world. The dairy tradition of Emilia, alongside our continuous investment in innovation, gives the DalterFood Group a strong, well-known, unique identity. We are proud of our success and we intend to continue along this path”.
