A reality that is handed down, evolves and continues to make people dream.

The start of the business is strongly linked to the person of the founder, Giovanni Battista Ambrosoli, whose peculiar personality, enriched by a substantial wealth of experience, characterized the first stages of the company’s development.

Giovanni Battista Ambrosoli was born in Como in 1882. After having obtained the diploma of industrial chemist at the Technical Institute of Winterthur (Zurich) and after having worked in the chemical field for several years in German Switzerland, he comes back to Italy in 1906 .

His settles in 1906 in Ronago (Co) in order to manage the farm of his paternal grandmother which was left without a guide.

In this period of activity he always keeps alive the interest in chemistry studies.
However, his passion for beekeeping arose by chance: “I became a beekeeper because I was a passionate consumer of honey”.

In a few years he develops a modern beekeeping and begins to pack honey in jars, with particular regarattention to the quality of the raw material.

His main idea was to put a product in stores that could meet the consumer’s expectations. He thus generates trust and a positive image in the Brand and in the Company.

Officially the company G.B. Ambrosoli was born with the registration with the Como Chamber of Commerce in 1923.

The new product begins a rapid diffusion thanks also to the recently invented radio advertising which gave the possibility to make known to the public the merits and values of Honey.

In harmony with this activity, in 1930 he starts the production of candies filled with honey .

The years after 1930 saw a good development of the work also because the Founder received great help from his eldest son Constantine who worked for almost a year in the United States of America.

The passion for beekeeping has always inspired us and the production of honey with respect of our traditions is one of the cornerstones of our company.

Ambrosoli is recognized as a leading company in the production of honey.

Today’s goal is that of a century ago: constant and meticulous work in favor of qualityresearch and experimentation with new beekeeping techniques, the dissemination of the culture and tradition of the territories in which the company interprets. .

Ambrosoli supervise the entire production cycle and rigorously select our suppliers who, to become such, must pass several steps of knowledge and trust, the process of which can take even years.

The direct relationship with  producers, the historical bond with the  employees, who have now become a large family with whom we share enthusiasm and choices, characterize the management of the company and our relationship with the national and international market.

Since honey production in Italy is limited, we rely – as well as Italian producers – also on producers coming from some of the purest areas in the world, such as the unspoiled plains of Argentina and the most remote prairies of Hungary, Poland and Moldova. Sparsely populated areas, with clean air, and whose honey stands out for its exceptional nature.

Honey is an incredible food because it is naturally perfect.

This is why our honey is made as it once was, with the only difference being that it is packaged with modern techniques.

We must neither add nor take anything away from honey: this is our creed and it will be like this forever.

At the base of each product, in addition to rigorous quality controls, there is the commitment to understand and satisfy the needs and expectations of the consumer, innovating the range of products to create unique specialties that are imprinted in memories.
