Our farming firm “Il Pesto di Pra’” is located in Genoa Pra’, - a former marine hamlet of the west coast of Liguria, Italy - where the finest basil in the region grows. For this reason our basil is worldwide known and highly appreciated. Our pesto is produced from the Basil that we have been growing since 1827 on the terraced fields of our farming firm “Serre sul mare”.
Local microclimatic conditions, which are particularly favorable due to the proximity of the sea and the good exposure to the sun of the our terraced fields, make the Pra’ basil unique as regards delicacy of its scent and intensity of its taste. The history of our farming business has far-off roots: you must go back some generations to understand how rich is the patrimony of knowledge and abilities we inherited from our fathers.
Our great expertise in the farming industry and excellent raw material enable us to produce a top-quality pesto sauce. Many factors contribute to the genuineness and high quality of our products:
- The use of first-choice, carefully selected ingredients: Fresh PDO basil, extra-virgin olive oil, grana padano PDO cheese, parmigiano-reggiano PDO cheese, pecorino PDO cheese, italian pine nuts, italian garlic.
- Specially accurate hand-made process
- Production according to the traditional Ligurian recipe as established by the Consortium of Pesto Genovese, of which “Il pesto di Pra’” is a member.
A further factor, which is synonymous with guarantee and quality for consumers is the quality control on the whole food processing chain carried out in our firm, from basil growing to pesto sauce production. As regards our products range, besides traditional pesto sauce, we produce garlic-free pesto sauce, walnut sauce and Red Pesto with basil. This is another typical Ligurian sauce made of ground walnuts, astonishingly matching with pansoti (greens stuffed pasta) and meatless ravioli. Our products are traded with our trade mark “ Il Pesto di Pra’” and included in the domestic distribution channels for promotion and development of typical food products.
