AN ITALIAN TRADITION OF PASSION, QUALITY, GASTRONOMIC EXPERTISE AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION
In 1954 the Sartor family began mushroom cultivation and preservation in earnest. This was the beginning of a tradition of growth, technological innovation and research into new products to reflect changing tastes and consumer needs. In 1995 Surmont – from Surgelati Montello (Montello Frozen Foods) – was established for the production of frozen products using industry leading technologies.
THE PERFECT PLACE TO CULTIVATE MUSHROOM
The company is located on the Montello, a long wooded hill in the centre of the Province of Treviso, in Italy’s north east corner. The Montello has been well known for its woods since the time of the Serenissima – the Republic of Venice – which is why it’s also known as the Bosco delle Serenissima, or Serenissima Wood. The Montello was a reserve of the Arsenale in Venice that used its wood, primarily oak which is particularly suitable for certain parts of the ships, for its fleet. This cultivation, alongside the particularly favourable climate, helped the Montello become the ideal ecosystem for mushrooms.
TRADITION, AUTHENTICITY AND THE UNBEATABLE FLAVOUR OF HOME-COOKED
The recipe for success for Surmont products is a simple one. Italian cuisine with a dash of creativity and all-natural preparation without flavourings or additives. This, combined with exclusive technologies designed to develop traditional cooking methods, allows the company to deliver delicious, wholesome dishes just as if they were made at home.
