2015 is a memorable year for Distillerie Caffo: indeed this year it celebrates its 100th anniversary. This is a crucial target for the company founded in 1915 by Giuseppe Caffo and based in Limbadi (VV). Over the years the company kept expanding in Italy and abroad: its first international subsidiary, Caffo Beverages Inc., was founded in New Jersey (USA) in 1999. In 2006 it acquired a distillery near Udine specialising in making quality grappa and then set up a company in Munich to expand on the German market. Its latest achievement, in 2013, was the management of production and sales of the Borsci plant of Taranto.
Gruppo Caffo provides a number of specialities in terms of spirits and other products, including: grappa, liqueurs, syrups, creamy liqueurs, sticks of liquorice and chocolate pralines, though its true pride and joy is the renowned “Vecchio Amaro del capo”.
Distillerie Caffo has been a P.E. LABELLERS client for years and it currently labels its small-sized products with a P.E. Labellers' labelling machine made as far back as 1978 and perfectly operational. In April 2015 it installed another cutting-edge MODULAR PLUS 960 14 labelling machine with built-in servo motors and 5 labelling stations: 4 60 m/min self-adhesive machines with a non-stop system to apply front labels and back labels and 1 cold glue machine, fitted with a hot-melt reinforcement system to apply L-shaped seals. Thanks to the versatility of this labelling machine, Distillerie Caffo can label almost all its products: “Il Vecchio Amaro del Capo”, Finocchietto, Limunì, Anice Caffo, etc..
