Manhattan Goes Nuts for Nocciolata Spread

Oh, this is fun! Rigoni di Asiago has launched an ad campaign for Nocciolata organic hazelnut spread on telephone kiosks around the heart of Manhattan in New York City. Just look!

You'll go nuts for it

How could you pass that without smiling?

Nocciolata, from Rigoni di Asiago, is 100 percent natural and made only of organic raw ingredients without the use of chemical processes and does not contain artificial flavors, which could alter its taste. Soft and scented with the flavor of Italian hazelnuts, Nocciolata is a step above any other brand of his category. Ingredients are carefully selected, measured and skillfully combined to create the perfect, creamy consistency. Nocciolata needs 36 hours of artisan processing for a creamier and softer texture. With no trans-fat and no palm oil, Nocciolata is gluten free and the perfect source for calcium and phosphorus. It can be enjoyed as a spread on bread, an accompaniment to cakes, crepes or ice cream and it is even used by creative chefs around the U.S. for cooking and baking.

Nocciolata was selected as a 2010 sofi ™ Awards Silver Finalist in the Outstanding Jam, Preserve, Honey or Nut Butter category by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade, Inc. (NASFT), now the Specialty Food Association.

Nocciolata is available at Whole Foods Market, Fairway, Gristedes, Food Emporium, D’Agostino and many others independent stores in Manhattan. Around the U.S. it is available in the best natural chain stores. For more information please visit the brand new web site www.nocciolatausa.com.

Also watch out for “LIVE SAMPLING” of Nocciolata pouches in selected locations around Manhattan during the weeks of October 27 and November 4. For more information on these events, check the Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/NocciolataUSA.


Limited Edition Italian Mandarin Honey Introduced at Whole Foods

Rigoni di Asiago®, makers of Nocciolata® organic chocolate hazelnut spread, Fiordifrutta® organic fruit spread and Mielbio® organic honey, will be unveiling today its finest MielBio® Italian Mandarin Honey Limited Edition exclusively at Whole Foods Market®. Rigoni di Asiago has manufactured 100 percent organic raw honey since 1922. Rigoni’s honey is all-Italian, carefully processed using only the finest nectars from unpolluted environments. Rigoni honeys are USDA organic certified and Non-GMO verified.

USA_Mielbio_Mandarin_Honey_LimitedEdition_WFMThe Mandarin Honey is produced in Calabria, the area of Italy that is most suited for the production of Clementines, also known as Mandarin oranges, at plantations devoted exclusively to organic farming methods for the fruit.  The honey is produced each year between the beginning of April and mid-May in a micro-climate that’s idea for the production of this unique honey. The product’s color varies from off white to translucent pale yellow, and its flavor is delicate and sweet with notes from the fruit whose blossoms produce the nectar from which the honey is made by 26 bee colonies with a total of more than 2,000 production hives.

Once the bees have made the honey, the human part of the production consists in pouring it from drums through a unique filtration system in a patented process that allows the honey to stay at room temperature (below 86 °F), so that it preserves its valuable micro-nutrients, which have antibacterial, antioxidant and antibiotic properties. All of these substances are degraded very rapidly at temperatures above 98.5 °F.

The Mandarin honey is then creamed through a slow process that lasts more than a week to make it perfectly spreadable, with a unique and unmistakable flavor.

About Rigoni di Asiago

The Rigoni brothers in Italy have been making their organic honey line since 1922, in the late ’80s, they developed Fiordifrutta, and in the late ’90s, Nocciolata. In recent years with the establishment of a U.S. presence, they are now sharing these great tastes and products with the people of America. Rigoni di Asiago has based its activity on producing from organic farming. Starting with honey, the company successfully proceeded onto making Fiordifrutta jams, the natural sweetener DolceDì, Nocciolata chocolate and hazelnut spread and most recently, Fruttosa ready-to-eat fruit dessert. RdA works with nature for nature. By choosing organic food, producing or eating it in the long term means sustaining nature’s reserves. It means protecting ourselves and future generations. Rigoni di Asiago made this choice many years ago.
