Alcass Company frozen food experts
At the end of the eighties, when the food-freezing technology was still at the beginning of its history, at the Alcass Company, the parent food company of Amica Natura, we decided to specialize precisely in the upcoming sector of top quality frozen food products.
After three decades, our factories expanded and our production became more and more efficient, but also more sustainable, traceable and transparent. Inside the research and development laboratories our experts study everyday new frozen food formulationss to guarantee a qualitatively impeccable product and to maintain all the properties from the dough to the home consumption, optimizing and monitoring the entire production chains. The Quality Assurance office instead, follows step by step all the processing stages and the ingredients standards, ensuring food safety of all the Alcass frozen products.
The main phase of deep freezing allows our raw materials to be preserved at their maximum point of freshness, flavor and quality. All our freezing and packaging processes require scientific precision and careful control of the entire cold chain, to bring consumers’ a healthy, genuine and authentic food.
History of frozen food technologies
The revolution of taste.
Cold is used as a powerful natural preservative since ancient times. The Eskimos, for example, used ice to preserve fish and its precious nutritional value over time.
Thanks to the development of cold trapping techniques, our diet and eating habits have undergone a real transformation. Starting from the sixties, frozen foods entered in the new generation refrigerators of many Italian families. Thanks to deep-freezing technologies we learned to preserve aromas, flavors and food nutrients maintaining its original flavor over time.
Between science and nutrition
Cold is the only natural preservative we use inside our frozen food manufacturer company Alcass. Deep freezing processes (at -18 degrees) thanks to speed and depth of penetration, spread homogeneously the micro-particles of the cold inside food, leaving intact nutritional values and organoleptic quality.
