A true pet food revolution in Italy.
Monge was born in 1963 from an intuition of Baldassare Monge
It was a big bet because it introduced a new concept for feeding dogs and cats in Italy and also a great news for those who loved their pets and wanted their wellbeing. In those years Italy was experiencing a great change. Millions of Italians moved from the countryside to the cities. Our four-legged friends were becoming part of the household requiring more and more care and attention. Baldassarre Monge realized that a change in dog and cat nutrition was necessary because their nutritional needs are very different from those of human beings. This is how the company grew steadily over the years, investing in innovation, research and quality, dealing with foreign markets and introducing a new concept of products in Italy, and obtained records not only in our country, but throughout Europe. It is an ongoing challenge to which the new generations of the family and important industry professionals are committed, called by Baldassare Monge to make their contribution with commitment and passion.
