List of products by brand Iasa
Retired naval captain Francesco di Mauro founded Ittica Alimentare Salerno (IASA) as one of the first companies to preserve the bounty of tuna and anchovies brought in by the local fishermen of Cetara, a village tucked away in a small cove of the Amalfi Coast. There are only a handful of companies left in Italy that package freshly caught fish according to high quality standards. And IASA is the only one that continues to do most of the work by hand: gutting and cleaning the fish, placing layers of anchovies in drums with sea salt and hand packing the anchovies in jars.
Quality and tradition are Iasa's primary objectives, as well as safety and respect for the ecosystem. Only the best craftmanship is used to preserve the natural flavour that Italy is so famous for.
Founded in Salerno in March 1969, Iasa has successfully transformed from a family-run business of founding partners (which began in the 1900s on the Amalfi Coast and mainly focused on salting anchovies in wooden barrels), to a quality, modern corporation that now takes care of all kinds of different fish.
In 1980 they began working with tuna - which is now one of the company's most popular products. Caught tuna is sustainably caught from boats off the Amalfi Coast and is ready to be processed on site within a few hours, to ensure ultimate freshness and flavour. Tuna production is made with only small, carefully selected fish, so that the tuna is as tender and flavourful as possible, steamed and dried under vacuum.
