Le Tamerici and the local area

a connection started far away

At Le Tamerici culinary tradition is combined with research and experimentation. Ours is a small world fired by our enthusiasm for the local area and for food in all its guises.

Started in 1991 thanks to the dedication of Paola Calciolari, Le Tamerici produces fine quality preserves, in particular jams, mostarda and wine jellies.  Besides using local produce once typical of the Mantuan area but now largely forgotten, such as the Campanina Orchard Apple or white watermelon, we also candy fruit and vegetables, as green tomatoes and pumpkin.

All our ingredients are carefully selected and processed fresh using special timing and methods that ensure color and fragrance are conserved without any need for preservatives, additives, thickeners or anti-oxidants.

also certifications of Quality

At Le Tamerici unites a spirit of craftmanship and niche products with modern technology.
The gradual expansion of the company has not brought about a reduction in quality.
As proof of the high standard of our production processes we have been awarded three important international certifications of quality: IFS and BRC.
