OUR HISTORY

1915

Our story begins when my grandfather Giovanni decides to open a factory in Vercelli for the production of horn buttons.

The wastes of this production create the problem of disposal and, after the proper research, the possibility of using these wastes as fertilizer is constant, since they have a high percentage of organic nitrogen.

Following the excellent results of fertilization and given the increase in requests from local farmers, my grandfather started grinding horns and animal hooves; “CORNUNGHIA” was born, which began to be used in the cultivation of rice in the province of Vercelli, where the largest annual European production of this cereal was present.

Later other markets were sought for this fertilizer, such as Liguria (for the cultivation of flowers), Emilia (for the cultivation of hemp and, subsequently, for the cultivation of asparagus and orchards). Later Tuscany became another interesting market, in particular the area of ​​Pescia (PT), for the cultivation of flowers.

Early 1960s

The strong growth of the company imposes the need to enlarge the plant outside the city.

1962

In that year, with the inauguration of the new factory, my father Carlo took over from my grandfather, who continues in the production of CORNUNGHIA in Prarolo (VC). He gradually introduced other solid and liquid organic fertilizers, always derived from proteins of animal or vegetable origin.

Organic fertilizers became the main activity of the company, but at the same time the import and processing of horn-worked seeds for the production of buttons, combs, handles for knives and umbrellas, as well as other objects was active.

Early 90s

Due to the continuous increase in transport and labor costs, it was decided to suspend production: emerging countries began to export CORNUNGHIA to Italy at competitive prices and, consequently, the decision was made to import CORNUNGHIA from these countries by adding our experience to improve product quality.

Organic fertilizers became the main activity of the company, but at the same time the import and processing of horn-worked seeds for the production of buttons, combs, handles for knives and umbrellas, as well as other objects was active.

1994

Taking over from the father’s business, the Luca Viano company was born, which continues the import of CORNUNGHIA and semi-finished products in horn, and increases the production of liquid fertilizers and the imports of raw materials based on amino acids, for the production of themselves.
