For this reason, Fratelli Pagani has shared a Code of Ethics, signed by owners, employees and associates, and has adopted the Model 231 to protect customers and consumers, which reports accredited and internationally recognized certifications.

Each report is an opportunity for a possible prompt intervention and becomes a tool for growth and improvement.

If discrepancies are found in the implementation of the principles of the Code of Ethics, reports can be sent to odv@fratellipagani.it: they will be managed independently by the Supervisory Board (autonomous entity) and in compliance with the provisions of Legislative Decree 196/2003 on the protection of privacy and data.

Five generations,
a unique passion

1909
In Milan, in via Spallanzani, between Porta Venezia quarter, a little grocery store of the brothers Filippo and Francesco Pagani was born, dedicated to sell colonial products. Some time later, with great intuition and initiative, the brothers started the “Fratelli Pagani” Company in an internal courtyard of Viale Monza. The business focused on the purchase of spices (in Italy) for the citizens of Milan who wanted to try something new and “exotic” to enrich traditional Milanese cuisine.

1914-1949
Although the wars and the challenges of the time, the two brothers, with the help of Olga Pagani, continued the business with profit. The best clients together with the staff and suppliers’ spirit gave a great boost to the company. The supply of raw materials took place through the European traders of the port of Rotterdam and some spices arrived from all over the world, especially from the Dutch and English colonies.

1950-1979
With the last war over, and the renewed desire of Milan and Italy to return to a new life, Fratelli Pagani went from being a small and traditional grocery store to a structured company capable of satisfying an ever-increasing demand for its products. The customers are more and more food companies, especially in the meat processing sector.
In 1958 Giovanni Cardazzi, Olga Pagani’s son, joined the company, contributing to its growth and success on the market. It was in 1978 that Marco Cardazzi joined the company as a stockman: he was the fourth generation.
The company’s growth had led to the search for larger spaces: in 1979 the company moved to its current headquarters in Via Ennio, in the semi-central quarter in Milan.

1980
In the 80’s the number of business trips to discover new suppliers and new spices increased: in particular to the areas of origin and production of raw materials, to learn all the secrets behind the quality of different types of spices.

1985
The national market required more and more attention, so Fratelli Pagani decided to expand its sales-network in these years. Moreover, it added an important step to its development, with the creation of an internal laboratory dedicated to the quality control of raw materials. Francesco Cardazzi joined the company and a new production line for semi-final products was started.

1990
In these years, the company grows and decides to start new purchasing channels, specifically, through direct import from the growers at the origin.

1995
Years of consolidation and attention to internal processes. In 1999, as a confirmation of the orientation towards quality, the company obtained the certification of the company quality system according to ISO 9001.

2000
The 2000’s marked a further growth of the company, with the acquisition of Colombo N. Droghe, Spezie e Aromi in 2001. The company also began its expansion abroad with the creation of two branches in Romania (2002) and Slovenia (2004).

2005
The expansion continued with the acquisition of the company Amino Ingredients in 2007 and the opening of the third branch in Eastern Europe: in Croatia (2007).

2015
The year 2014 saw the entry of the fifth generation in the company with Valentina Cardazzi, committed first of all to marketing and communication strategies, then also to commercial development initiatives abroad.
These are the years in which Fratelli Pagani acquired Cerreto Amanti del Biologico, a company dedicated to the production and sales of 100% organic ingredients and acquired 46% of Collina Toscana, active in the world of spices for retail for a large-scale consumption. In 2017, new logistic and warehouse spaces were acquired in Milan to transfer the spice warehouse and create the internal Flavour Departement, with the aim of offering a precious service to Clients.

2018
The jump overseas was made in 2018: was inaugurated the American branch. In this way, the sales and technical network was also strengthened outside Europe, with an overall network that reached 100 people. In the meantime, Mattia Cardazzi joined the group to manage Cerreto Amanti del Biologico, in the Reggio Emilia office.
