A new future for our sea
Plastic tons of is dumped into our oceans every day (about 13 million tons every year). An equivalent of a truck full garbage of plastic is dumped into the sea every minute. The impact that all can have in the long run on the health of our sea, on its ecosystem, on the life of marine fauna, on our health is really strong on . We at Zarotti, the #Ambasciatoridelmare, wondered if, in our small way, there could be a way to reverse this trend and we found the answer in a label! But not just any label: UPM Raflatac's Ocean Action labels, in fact, are the first in the world made with ocean plastic - that is, plastic found within 50 km of the coast - with the aim of increasing the recovery of plastic waste before they pollute our oceans. Today we are proud to be the first company in the food sector in Italy to use this material for the labels of our Tuna Fillets in Olive Oil: the starting point of an important project which is taking off and which will progressively involve all our labelable products, becoming an integral part of our consolidated corporate vision based on the protection of our wonderful sea.
Our commitment to protecting and respecting the environment has reached another important milestone that fills us with pride. After obtaining, last July, the Plastic Free certification for our packaging, in fact, another certification has also arrived that was particularly close to our hearts: all the labels shown on Zarotti products are officially recognized as 100% sustainable. Thanks to SGS, a leading company in the world for inspection, analysis and certification services, it was possible to follow the necessary process and undergo all the necessary checks to obtain this result in total correctness and transparency.
A certificate that has a special value for us, because it not only reaffirms and recognizes our commitment to the environment and the future of the planet, but also allows us to express, once again, the deep love that binds us to ours. wonderful sea.
A love that can be seen immediately: already from the label.
Plastic Free Certification
We are certified!
July 2022 will be a month we will remember. A month in which we have reached a milestone and obtained a strong recognition, for which we are committed and we have firmly believed in: the Plastic Free certification. Zarotti's commitment to the environment began a few years ago, with the determined desire to reduce the use of plastic .

We have decided to tell our story, a story made of ancient traditions, passion, technology, the sea.
To tell it, however, we decided to do it through your words: this is how #ilMareDentro project was born, the first Magazine of stories that tell about the sea that inspires and that becomes an engine of exchanges and productivity.
Zarotti signs this great project that speaks of true stories lived in different times and places. We believe in those values that connect those who have the sea inside.
Through the social channels and the website, we will give voice to the many creative and entrepreneurial realities that make MadeinItaly famous all over the world.
We will talk about managers, artists, artisans, influencers. We will talk about you, people who believe in what they do and who believe in our country. We want to support the excellence of our Italian territory: entrepreneurship and craftsmanship, tourism, fashion, design, food and art sectors.
Zarotti has #ilMareDentro not only because its products come from the sea, but because we were born in the sea and we keep its cultural aspect, respect, education and passion.
We could say - without sounding arrogant - that knowing the sea is a serious matter.
It means living it, or have lived it, it means knowing every nuance, even if it is never the same. It means having the awareness that it is a friend of those who can give you a lot but who can take everything away from you.
It must be respected, loved. This is why we are committed to respecting the sea with policies and strategies that can preserve it for many generations to come.
We fish only in seas where fishing is strictly regulated to safeguard the marine ecosystem and fish reproduction, thus obtaining FriendoftheSea certification.
The glass in which we pack our anchovies is not only beautiful to look at or ethical for the environment, but also the material that preserves the flavor and nutritional characteristics of food better than any other.
The paper and cardboard of our packaging come from forests certified for environmental sustainability. The labels are wash-off, so the glass remains free of glue residues and is completely recyclable.
Not only have we carefully chosen the packaging materials, but we have also rethought transport packaging, favoring those that are easier to dispose of and reducing their quantity, optimizing packaging and logistics procedures. And we will not stop there, we will do more and more.
We started with us to choose who to give a voice to. But you don't need to see the sea to feel it.
You have the sea inside, wherever you are.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Come and discover our new Magazine www.ilmaredentro.eu, #Wonderful stories await you!

Gianluca Simone's (Zarotti S.p.a commercial director) interview on FOOD
Zarotti philosophy is expressed in three keywords: tradition, sustainability and innovation.
- Tradition and modernity: the entire Zarotti range is out with a 100% renewed total look.
Starting first from the restyling of the logo, to worthily celebrate in the shapes and colors the origin of the company (the "good South of Italy"), its values and its philosophy: the red of passion, the yellow of light and heat.
- Transparency guarantee: the new product look&feel strengthens the brand awareness. There are dedicated colors for each of the 5 lines: yellow/delicacy, red/gluttony, blue/tradition, light blue/lightness and wellness, black/excellence.
- Sustainability: with “green” packaging.
All packagings, in glass or tin, are fully recyclable: by 2024 Zarotti aims to become 100% plastic free.
Also the sea is becoming greener
Zarotti soul is explained by our commercial director, Gianluca Simone, in FOOD interview.
"We are born in Cilento, 70 years ago in Mediterranean blue waters. Then we grow up in Parma, in the heart of the Food Valley. Zarotti's mission has always been to create added value in the fish preserves market.
For this, our offer focuses on a high level of service to the trade and consumers, the wideness of a range with over 70 references, and many new and exclusive recipes.
We have strongly decided to use the pelagic fishing system: we fish only where fishing is regulated by strict rules for the protection of the marine ecosystem, during times dictated by the phases of the moon so as to not disturb the reproduction of the fish. Fish stock is regulated by maximum sustainable yield levels (MSY), respecting minimum sizes and fish quotas.
Therefore we are proud of the "Friend of the Sea" double sustainability certification.
For us, the sea is also becoming greener.

What are you waiting for?
Happy Holidays to you all!
It has been a difficult year for everyone. A different, unexpected year that has profoundly changed us. It was the year of sacrifices, renunciations, changes, but also the year of opportunities.
And never as in this 2020, the term "opportunity" has acquired such a great value.
Yes, because having a chance today means receiving a great gift.
Sometimes, however, the opportunity should not be waited for, but sought, with all one's strength. With tenacity, with love, with passion, with faith or with trust, it doesn't matter with what, the important thing is to never stop believing that everything can change for the better. We believe in it, every day.
For us, for our families and for those who have trusted us and sometimes even for those who have not. A chance is given to everyone. Especially on days like these.
“We wish you all, many, many happy Christmases, and many friendships. And a huge amount of joyful memories. On this day of hope, we will no longer keep anything away from our home and everyone will be welcome. Welcome to what has been, what is and what we hope will be! We wish a Merry Christmas to each of us. "
