The Company was established in Acquanegra Cremonese in 1932 by Clemente Calza, following a long managing experience in various dairies for Polenghi-Lombardo, started producing cheese rennet and cheese trade. In 1970 his son Danilo took over the family business and decided to discard the cheese trade, dedicating solely on the production of paste rennet.
Always aiming at the high quality of his products, Danilo Calza, in time, consolidates the family business as leader in Europe in the production of paste rennet. Today we boast as our clients the most important producers of tasty and spicy cheeses.
In 1996 the company was turned into an S.r.l. (Ltd) and in 2000 renovates it’s production facilities by moving to a new plant where all the sanitary standards are implemented, allowing the ISO 9001 quality certification to be obtained the following year.
Our company widens its horizons by looking to new markets. Besides paste rennet, it starts producing and marketing a wide range of ingredients for the dairy industry worldwide. From enzymes to preservatives. From starter cultures to additives and aromas.
Soon the new facility becomes too small to keep up with the company’s growth.
In 2016 we ultimate the construction of a larger plant which joins the existing one thus reaching the goal of doubling production capacity and create a new image for the brand on the international scene. A modern and functional facility allowing the non-animal based products to have a dedicated space in the production chain.
Today the company turn to an international market with the production and trade of a wide range of ingredients for the dairy industry.
Besides paste rennet, we produce and trade in all countries – you may find our distributors in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America – rennet of all types, enzymes, preservatives, ferments, additives and aromas. High quality products are not Calza Clemente’s only strength: we offer our clients much, much more.
Through a careful analysis of every clients’ needs, our team, which makes use of the collaboration of the best international technicians and cheesemakers, is able to create tailor-made solutions for all types of productions.
