Sacmar was founded in 1947 thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of Ernesto Sacerdote. The business began as a simple activity which sold invaluable Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) oil which was distilled in Piedmont and then sold in Lombardy. In a short time, the business grew and Sacmar evolved into a transformation and processing company.
In the following decades, Sacmar forged partnerships with the growers thus occupying themselves directly with the second distillation – also known as rectification. The company then increased its catalogue of products to become one of Italy’s leading companies, opening its new production plant in Settimo Milanese in the 1990s which has recently been enlarged and renovated.
At the moment Sacmar produces and sells fragrances, essential oils, natural extracts, and flavoring for the food and personal care product industries.
Sacmar and ECSA share not only principles and successes but also a common history. Both are successful family businesses founded by men with entrepreneurial courage: Sacmar now in its third generation, ECSA in its fourth.
“The collaboration with Sacmar represents a point of reference for us.
In addition to business, we are bound by a deep friendship and trust cultivated over the many years of sharing.
I often work with Mrs. Marzia Sacerdote and with her son, Ruben Francot, for whom I have deep esteem.
I am sure that our collaboration is destined to continue over the years and to make the two companies stronger and more successful. "
