Corilu Società Cooperativa Agricola, was established in Lu, near Alessandria, in 1998, by a group of farmers, always been friends and partners in their work. The aim was to maintaining the venerable tradition of hazelnut cultivation. Lu, with its rolling hills and sunny climate, provides a perfect environment for this crop.
From this combination of resources rose Corilu, that today can be described as an increasingly important reality for the cultivation and production of Nocciola Piemonte PGI. Underlying the success of the cooperative, as well as a highly specialized team, there is the use of advanced machinery and technologies; Corilu actively collaborates with the University of Piacenza and the Research Center of the Piedmont Region Creso. Working side by side with professionals of the cooperative we are able to guarantee an excellent product, PGI marked, which certifies a Regional Product of Superior Quality, all with respect and care for the environment.
In 2015, Corilu decided to embark on a new path: the production of hazelnut-based products. In the new laboratories we produce all semifinished hazelnut products: shelled hazelnuts, toasted, flour, grain and hazelnut paste, which is the basis of hazelnut gelato. Moreover, we produce three kinds of spread, all exclusively obtained from Nocciola Piemonte PGI and with no other added fat.
