Menù has been producing food specialities since 1932
In 1932, Romolo Barbieri, father of Rodolfo, founded ROBAR, a firm that produced cured meats.
Production of the first speciality, Ragù Tutto, began during the wartime, in the 1940s. This was the forerunner of everything that followed.
Food specialities for the catering industry
In 1962, Robar started to work for the catering industry, and in 1972 it changed its name to Menù.
The many certifications obtained demonstrate the priority given by Menù to the quality of its production process and to food safety: UNI EN ISO 9002, UNI EN ISO 9001:2000, UNI EN ISO 22000:2005, UNI EN ISO 9001:2008. Menù's technicians work hard to ensure first-rate product controls and safe food preservation.
On 29 May 2012, Menù was hit by a powerful earthquake, but the company was completely rebuilt in just 3 years.
Preservation evolution: the year 2016 say the introduction of Èmaremix, the first product of the Menù Evolution line. Tinned food as good as fresh, and a combination of top quality selected ingredients.
Pomodorina, the heart of Menù: in 2017 the company's iconic product, loved the world over, turned 50. Pomodorina is a special sauce prepared using fresh tomatoes, a wide variety of fresh vegetables, herbs and oil.
