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.

There are 12 products.

Anchovy Fillets in Olive Oil (95g) - Iasa

£4.90

Succulent, meaty Italian anchovies with an outstanding balance of briny and sweet flavours.

Preserved solely in extra virgin olive oil, anchovies are delicious, healthy and with a huge gastronomic use. Even today, processing the anchovies at Iasa is done completely by hand, respecting the traditions passed down through generations that enhance the product’s unique quality and taste. Anchovies are fished in the spring and summer from so-called Cetara boats, as the lights on them attract fish into the nets, which are then hoisted onto the boat while still alive. Being such a local delicacy, the fish undergo the first stages of curing only hours after they are caught - especially important as the features of the blue fish deteriorate very easily. After 12 months of curing under sea salt, the anchovies are carefully cleaned and deboned by hand. The firm pink fillets are laid over crisp white linen cloths that help absorb the brine and salt. After a few minutes of drying, the fillets are placed side-by-side in glass jars and covered with olive oil. Use instead of salt in the base of a range of dishes, from famous Italian offerings such as pasta puttanesca and bagna cauda to simple, lesser known dishes like pasta c\'anciova e muddica or in an anchovy frittata (Alici in Frittata).

Anchovy Syrup "Colatura di Alici" (100ml) - Iasa

£7.90

Incredibly rare, the elixir is extracted during the anchovy curing process taking five months to produce.

One of the most treasured ingredients of the region of Naples is colatura di alici. Rich with the flavours of the sea, colatura dates back to ancient Rome. Incredibly rare to areas outside of Sicily, the production of this incredible liquid has actually dwindled so much that Slow Food International has declared the protection of this ancient ingredient. Pasta has never met a nicer friend than colatura. The most simple dish for it involves adding a dash of it to spaghetti, chili flakes and olive oil, but you can add lots of twists to this simple recipe such as lemon zest, toasted breadcrumbs or parsley.
