Innovative technologies for 100% natural products: Valentina Chini, AD Chini

The partnership between Melinda and AD Chini started in 2004, and since then, it has become stronger every year. “My sister Elisa and I inherited the company from our father Danilo, who already in 1988 had transformed a family business into a company. He found the way of producing our valley’s traditional dried apples transforming them into a product that could be enjoyed all your around”. These are the words of Valentina Chini, marketing and communication manager of the company with approximately 50 employees mostly women.

“Our mission is to maintain our products 100% natural. We are based in Cles and our apples are locally produced by Melinda. We receive two daily deliveries and the apples are immediately processed without being refrigerated. Thanks to our innovative technologies we don’t need to add anything to our apples”. Would you like some examples? “Melamangio dried apples, are dehydrated at a very low temperature, in order to maintain all their organoleptic characteristics and guarantee an extra crunchy product. Tenero Snack doesn’t contain any natural nor artificial gumming agent. The diced apples are first dehydrated then they are rehydrated, in this way they attach to each other in a natural way. Our last creation is the apple mousse Più che Mela. Very rich in fibres thanks to their own apple peels and not by adding a third ingredient. This is what makes the product healthy and very tasty”.
