Three generations of the Ercole family have shaped our cultural roots. From 1939 until now each generation has built on the company's spirit of creativity, flexibility and enthusiasm. Everything, in fact, that's at the heart of our philosophy and culture today. We'd like to introduce them to you.
Carlo Ercole, elder son of our founder, has been the inspiration behind our creativity. Blessed with the fertile soil of the Piedmonte region and its abundant produce, his sense of adventure when combining local ingredients is the secret behind the products we love so much.
Lorenzo Ercole, younger son of the founder, has given us the technical expertise to capture the full flavour of our produce, always picked at the peak of its perfection. His easy-going management style and respect for the seasonality of ingredients has helped us to protect and develop our longstanding relationships with the local community. Especially the farmers, who we consider our partners.
Giuseppe Ercole, son of Carlo and now the chairman of Sacla UK, has given us a new energy to promote national and regional Italian cooking throughout the world. We now sponsor ICIF (www.icif.com) the culinary institute which teaches Italian cuisine to international chefs. Giuseppe's dynamic approach is tempered by an insistence that we still nurture our traditional ways.
Here's to the next generation of the Ercole family. May their dedication to excellence remain at the heart of everything we do.
