Our history

We are not great because we are old, but we are old because we are great!

The origins of the Silvateam Group date back 160 years, when in 1854 Carlo Giuseppe Battaglia built his first factory based at Corsaglia di Frabosa, in the province of Cuneo, for the extraction of tannins from chestnut wood.

During the 20th century, the company has developed and become a world leader in the production and commercialisation of vegetable extracts and their derivatives. It is also internationally recognised as a chemical producer for the tanning industry.

During the last few years, Silvateam has invested important resources in Research & Development in order to find new applications related to its core business of vegetable extracts and to explore fast growing markets and thus diversify its business.
